We have to see how important our learning and growing is because when we surrender to the Spirit and practice what we learn we can see and feel the blessings in our lives. Putting into practice is so important because it helps us become more like Christ and then we can reflect His light and work with Him to advance the Kingdom.
Verse 23 says, “Anyone who isn’t with me opposes me, and anyone who isn’t working with me is actually working against me.” It’s more than just believing in Him, it is living in Him that makes us different than the world. We must take what we know and grow, then go and spread the Good News so the world can hear it and choose to accept it or not. We need to be persistent even when we are tired and people keep us down.
Luke chapter 11 verses 9-11 always makes me focus because it says, “And so I tell you, keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.” So let’s hear the word and be the word. Let’s have the passion and desire to put God first and love the fact that He has given us tools to know Jesus so we can put it all into practice and know that we are working with Him. Amen
