Do you hear the word of God and obey it?

Jesus-Christ-from-Hagia-SopIn Luke 11: 27 we find;  As Jesus was saying these things, a woman in the crowd called out, “Blessed is the mother who gave you birth and nursed you.”

 He replied, “Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it.”

Studying the Bible then contemplating on it as you go through the day might be one form of what Jesus called “hearing.” With every possible moment we should always keep God’s holy words first and fore most in our minds, and in doing so we begin to reflect on the messages and stories of the bible and then suddenly God’s word starts talking to us as we realize our shortcomings, our sins against God, our neighbor, and ourselves.

Do you listen to God’s words as they call you to analyze your shortcomings? Do you reflect on how you have failed to follow and obey his words? These are questions you should ask yourself and then evaluate how you can do better in the service of The Lord.
