Hear The Living Word of God

15 He who has ears to hear, let him hear. ~ Matthew 11:15

The Word of God is living and active; therefore, it cannot lie dormant or inactive; it must be stirred up within us. How do we receive the Word of God? Through hearing. Once we receive the Word, then we must mix it with [(ho) Pistis] The Faith and put it into action. We put it into action through word and deed.

In other words, we live what we preach, and we preach what we live. No one hides a lamp under a bowl but puts it on a stand so that the whole room can be lit and those in the room can benefit from it. It’s the same principle in the Parable of the Mustard Seed. When it’s fully grown, it grows into the largest of all the garden plants, and the birds of the air come and nest in the branches. It benefits all.

Jesus declared that there is a right way and a wrong way to hear; that is why He solemnly warned us to be careful how we hear. When we study the original Greek, we find that there are two types of hearing. One where we let sound or words pass through our ear canal and right out the other ear canal. Those words are meaningless to the hearer because they did not meet or did not mix it with [(ho) Pistis] The Faith. It’s as the saying goes, “My words fell on deaf ears.” Therefore, it was of no benefit to those who heard.

Then there is a right way to hear. It is the hearing that is both present and active, as well as past and active. When a word is spoken to us, we immediately receive the Word, like the fourth hearer in the Parable of the Sower, and it is immediately mixed with [(ho) Pistis] The Faith, and it produces a harvest of a hundredfold.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Hear The Living Word of God.
