Once We’ve Learned It ~ September 13

Once We’ve Learned It

We will live it!

Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you. Philippians 4:9

This verse tells us what our reward will be if we focus on God, love Him, and allow him to dwell within our hearts, minds, and souls. It tells us when we do these things we will receive the greatest of earthly pleasures: the presence of the God of peace in our lives. There is no greater prize than peace.

And, all we have to do to receive this prize is to first seek God and learn who He is, what He is, and most importantly, how much He loves us. Then, when we’ve learned these things, we must take another step: receive them.

However, knowing how much God loves us and having all the knowledge in the world, means nothing if it is not applied to the task for which it is designed. Knowing everything we can learn from texts and speeches and study, means nothing if we do not take what we know and put it into practice.

Seek God; learn about Him, receive His knowledge, then focus on Him and live what you’ve learned. I can say with confidence, the number one thing you will learn is how much He loves you, and when you make the decision to receive His love, you will put it into practice. That’s simply how it works.
