Jer 4:22“For My people are foolish, They have not known Me. They are silly children, And they have no understanding. They are wise to do evil, But to do good they have no knowledge.”
Ps 119:65-67 You have dealt well with Your servant, O LORD, according to Your word. 66 Teach me good judgment and knowledge, For I believe Your commandments. 67 Before I was afflicted I went astray,
But now I keep Your word.
John 14:22-23 22 Judas (not Iscariot) said to Him, “Lord, how is it that You will manifest Yourself to us, and not to the world?” 23 Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him. 24 He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine but the Father’s who sent Me.
Whether we know Christ personally or not, knowing Christ through the word of God is a well-known fact in our life. These words were uttered and written through holy men of God when they are moved by the Holy Spirit to portray the characteristics of Christ, His likes and dislikes and how we ought to live our life if it needs to be pleasing Him. How this does becomes reality in our life?It is through our fellowship and earnest eagerness. Without fellowship with Christ through the Holy Spirit, these words will not come to life in our life. These will be mere words and the effects of these words will not be reality if our fellowship is irregular or for namesake. If an unmarried man or woman reads an article about intricacies of marriage, it will be just words in his/her mind, because he/she did not enter in a relationship through marriage. On the other hand, if a woman is engaged to a man, she might be very much eager to know about the likes and dislikes of her groom. She may read it, keep it in her heart, and perform according to what she came to know before, after the marriage. If she does so, the groom will be more pleased with her action. Likewise, the word of God is in our midst. If we are not born again to enter in to a fellowship with our Groom, then there is no chance for us to understand first of all or there is no necessity to perform what we came to know about the Groom through reading it. If we are not entering in to this new covenant, there will not be any eagerness in our life to know about Him and to perform our acts according to His likes and dislikes. In short, we need to have the eagerness to know about Him and be baptized in to this new covenant to have fellowship with Christ. When this happens in our life, the word of God will come to reality in our life and we live in the WORD.
