THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
A pastor finished his sermon and was standing at the door
greeting members as they left church.
One lady came by and said, "Pastor! I am just FILLED with
the message this morning!"
The pastor thanked her, then turned to a teenage boy who
was next in line.
"Son," asked the pastor, "What did you think of the message
The young man looked thoughtful, then said, "To be honest,
Sir, I got a belly full of you too!"
27 And it came to pass, as he spake these things, a certain woman
of the company lifted up her voice, and said unto him, Blessed is the
womb that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked.
28 But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of
God, and keep it.
Light from the WORD.
The lady who spoke up in verse 27 above, thought the mother of
Jesus was particularly "blessed" to have given Him birth, and to
have nurtured Him during formative years.
Surely, Jesus' mother had experienced great joy through
special communion she had with Him.
And Jesus Himself proclaimed it so, saying "Yea."
But then, our Lord proclaimed a truth that is particularly worth noting!
He/she who hears and keeps the Word of God in his/her heart has
as great a communion with Him as did His physical mother!
Mary was chosen to deliver the incarnate God to the world.
YOU, Christian, are chosen to deliver the SAME LORD to the world!!
How do YOU do that?
LEARN of Him!
Then DELIVER -- tell others!!
