GREETINGS FROM THE TEMPLE …
Being fed requires action on your part. You can’t just sit and wait on your pastor – teacher – or preacher to feed you the Word and not act on It! He’s leading you to the Water – it is up to you to drink It! Action!
“But whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” John 4:14 (NIV)
Why are we not feeding on the Word being generously given to us by our pastors – teachers – preachers?
“We join church expecting others to feed us. The church is not a country club with perks and privileges.” – Pastor V.S. Brice
Let go of the mind-set of waiting to be fed. Waiting to be fed is stalling your Spiritual growth. It will cause complacency.
To be fed is to hear the Word – read the Word – act on the Word or apply the Word to your life situations. No one can do these things for you. However, in order to hear – read – act on or apply the Word, you must first understand the Word.
How often do you attend church and come away not understanding exactly what was being taught?
Ok, if this has happened to you then it’s up to you to find clarity in the subject. How do you do this? Attend Bible Study. Ask the person delivering the Word for clarity. Simple! Yet, many of us will hear the Word – not completely understand the Word – but fail to ask for clarity. You will never grow in the Word if you do this.
The pastor is doing his part – delivering the Word. It’s time for you to do your part. It’s feeding time! Act on the Word – make the Word an intricate part of your everyday life. Serve Him! Get up out of that pew and get to work! Pray for your pastor – leader! God is leading him to shepherd you. Let go and let God lead you to serve Him! Action!
