MESSAGE:

Hearing the Word of God is very crucial to receiving freedom. Asides hearing the Word in the church, you can utilize your free periods to listen to the audio Bible on your phone. When you do this often, not only will you easily memorize scriptures, but there will also be no space for evil thoughts to hibernate in your heart. If you do not have the Bible in audio format, you can read the Bible audibly to yourself regularly. Each Word that comes into your spirit man gives you life from above.

In addition to hearing, you must meditate on the Word you have heard until you understand it. When the Word comes, it come with divine light, ready to give understanding to those who think upon it (Psalm 119:130). If all you do is hear and read the Word, you will just be scratching the surface of God’s treasures. Just as mineral resources are deep below the surface of the earth; so also are the depths of the riches and treasures of the Kingdom. They are inaccessible from mere hearing or reading. You have to dig deep; if you can do this day and night, prepare for great things from God.

Action Point: Set aside an hour every day to study and meditate on the Bible.

Hymn 9:

1. I am so glad that our Father in heaven
Tells of His love in the book He has given;
Wonderful things in the Bible I see;
This is the dearest, that Jesus loves me.

Chorus
I am so glad that Jesus loves me,
Jesus loves me, Jesus love me;
I am so glad that Jesus loves me,
Jesus loves even me.

2. Though I forget Him and wander away,
Still He doth love me whenever I stray;
Back to His dear loving arms would I flee,
When I remember that Jesus loves me.

3. Oh, if there’s only one song I can sing,
When in His beauty I see the great King,
This shall my song in eternity be,
“Oh, what a wonder that Jesus loves me.”
