For The Beloved

There are so many voices that try to woo us. So many philosophies that try to sway us. So many lifestyles that call to us, beckon us to come to them.
They always seem to have an answer. They always seem to know just how to reason. They always seem to know just what we want to get our way with, at just the right time.
Yet, there is only One voice, one philosophy and one lifestyle we must always be able to hear, understand and live by. The voice of the Father, whispering to us. The gentle nudging of His Spirit, guiding us. The still small voice, calling us to the higher way.
The ONLY way we can have discernment, the only way we can know what to believe, the only way we can know that we know that we know how to rightly live, is by plunging, headlong, into the Word of God.
Taste of it. Eat of it. Feast upon it. Drink of it. Wash in it. Meditate upon it. Sustain yourself with it. Nourish yourself with it. Renew your mind in it. Guide your way with it. Light your path with it. Learn from it. Teach from it. Admonish from it. Exhort from it. Emulate it. Seek it. Run after it. Lay hold of it. Embrace it. Fight for it. Die for it.
“…in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so…” ~Acts 17
