“My beautiful wife, My company has asked 4 colleagues and myself to go on a seven day trip to Dubai for a training program. They said that we can bring along our wives and I thought this will be the best opportunity for us to have the honeymoon we never did after we got married.“
“I have already packed a suit case for myself, so please pack yours. Our flight leaves at exactly 7 pm so I will be home at 6 o’clock for us to go to the airport. No need to cook dinner since there will be food on the plane. Just be prepare to go as soon as I get back. Please be ready before I get back so we don’t miss the flight. I Love you with all my heart.“
I bet you thought this woman was unwise when you realized her mistake as you read this piece.
Well unfortunately this is the state of many Christians in the Body of Christ today. We have accepted Jesus as our Lord, and are excited about being children of God and the fact that He will come back again for us one day. But we have not taken into account what He expects us to do before His return.
This is because our Bibles are closed. We have read a few scriptures in the Word and are excited about promises but have completely ignored most of his instructions.
You do not know a man if you do not know His Word.
How then do we profess to be married to a groom whose word we have relegated to the background in the pursuit of signs and wonders.
Unfortunately what many don’t know is that the Word is the power for signs and wonders, so if we go for the Word these things we are chasing will chase us.
Let us pay attention to His letter, which is the Word of God. It will draw us close to His desire for us and enable us to walk in victory over this world and it’ challenges.
