The Heart of the Matter

Reading biographies of men and women of faith stirs a desire for faith - but hearing the Word of God imparts faith. When our body is surrendered, our soul feels a desire for God - but it is our spirit that comes into communion with God. Hearing the Word of God draws our spirit into real, intimate fellowship with and worship of the Word Himself, which is Jesus the Christ. Time spent in the Word is time spent with Jesus, by Whom all things were made. Thanksgiving and praise are the Bible way of entering the presence of God - but once we get there, the real objective is worship. Having met the conditions to enter into worship, let's not turn around and leave straightaway - but tarry a while. When we can sing about something that we are believing for before we see it, then we know we really have it.
