You have heard that humans are creatures of habit. What is habitual often takes place with little thought or at least fresh thought. It is very easy to allow this to happen in our church attendance. Whether it is the weekly services or a special set of revival meetings, we can go, sit and listen with little thought of preparing ourselves to receive with meekness the engrafted Word. Before you rush off to church this morning, would you take a moment to think about what you are doing. Think about what God wants to do in your heart. Think about what you want God to do in your heart. As you think about it, consider doing the following.
- Pray—give God permission to work in your heart by the power of His Word.
- Expect—anticipate that God will give you something awesome from His Word.
- Commit—resolve to respond in obedience to all that God shows you in His Word.
- Act—choose to immediately practice what you have been taught from His Word.
Remember, every time you walk into church and hear biblical preaching, it is a blessing and a gift from God. Don’t take it for granted. Think about it!
