HOW TO INTEGRATE GOD’S WORD INTO MY LIFE

(Using My Memorized Verses)


1. BUILD ON IT


Matthew 7:24


“Everyone who hears these words of mine, and puts them into practice, is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.”



Unreliable Foundations


  • POPULAR CULTURE

  • TRADITION

  • REASON

  • EMOTION


2. FEED ON IT


Colossians 3:16


“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly.”


1. RECEIVE IT with my ears. (listen)

2. READ IT with my eyes

3. RESEARCH IT with my hands & mouth (study)

4. REFLECT ON IT with my mind

5. REMEMBER IT with my heart



3. LIVE BY IT


Psalm 119:11


“I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.”


James 1:22


“Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.”



4. GROW THROUGH IT


Psalm 119:18


Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in your law.”


PARABLE OF THE 4 SOILS (Luke 8:4-15)


1. The hardened soil = A CLOSED MIND

3. The soil with weeds = A PREOCCUPIED MIND
