“The essence of the light is to guide our walk.” -Rev. Busuyi Olabode
Light means the revelation of God’s word. When the revelation of God’s word come to us, we are expected to give a qualitative respond to it. The light of God’s word is not meant to just rejoice over alone but to make a diligent walk with it. No wonder David said
Psalms 119:105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
We see here that David was talking about the word of God as a lamp unto his feet and a light unto his path. The light of God’s word position us for a walk. It place before us a responsibility of what to do next with what we have heard and not just to sit with what we have heard but to walk with it.
“We need to become responsible with the word of God”
We will then understand when the book of Proverbs says to attend to God’s word.
Proverbs 4:20 My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.
4:21 Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.
God’s word needs our attention and also our response to the word. You see it says let them not depart from thine eyes but to keep them in the midst of thine heart. This means the word of God can depart from from our eyes.
“The safest place to keep the word of God is your heart”
No wonder the word told us yo give the more earnest heed to the word we have heard lest they depart.
Hebrews 2:1 Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, LEST AT ANY TIME WE SHOULD LET THEM SLIP.
It’s clear the word can slip away from us, the use of that word slip means to allow it leave us gradually without notice until it is gone from us but what can make the word not to slip from us is when we give our attention to the word of God and to give the more earnest heed to the word the word. Keeping the precepts and the ordinances of God. What we have heard through the word should move us into God.
“The final destination of the word of God is not the heart of man but it moves from there to cause man to move into God”
The essence of the word is to respond and give the more earnest heed to what we have heard because they can actually slip away from us. The danger in our time is when we only rejoice at the word of God and not take heed to that word we have heard. But to keep them in other not to slip from us is by taking heed to the word, giving the word of God our attention and obeying the instructions in the word of God.
