An Application of Growth

Scripture: Luke 8.  

(Key verses)

Luke 8:18 (NLT)

18 “So pay attention to how you hear. To those who listen to my teaching, more understanding will be given. But for those who are not listening, even what they think they understand will be taken away from them.”

(How Can I apply what God is saying here to my life today?)

Applying God’s Word helps us grow. This is a principle of growth in physical, mental, and spiritual life. For example, a muscle, when exercised, will grow stronger, but an unused muscle will grow weak and flabby. Spiritually, if we are not growing stronger, we are growing weaker; it is impossible for us to stand still. How are you using what God has taught you?

(What I will ask of God, in order for me to properly apply His Word to my life)

Lord, thank You for speaking to Your children through Your Word. Please sharpen our minds and our understanding. Please clear our minds so that we might concentrate on all that You have to say to us. May we be careful to be Your obedient servants and act on all that You teach us and in all that You provide guidance to us in. I love You Lord and lift my voice to worship You for all that You are to me! Thank You Jesus!
