Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
“A Guideline for Life”
Text: Ezra 7:10
“For Ezra had prepared his heart to seek the Law of the LORD, and to do it, and to teach statutes and ordinances in Israel.”
“A Guideline for Life,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
I was struck by this simple Guideline for Life that Ezra had as a skilled scribe of the Law of Moses. He Prepared his heart to do three things:
Seek the Law
Do the Law and
Teach the Law.
The Warrior is also expected to be a skilled scribe of God’s New Covenant of Grace, and His Word:
Preparing our heart to Love God Supremely and our Fellow man equally. (Luke 10:27).
Because You and I Love God more than anyone or anything else we will:
SEEK and study the Word of God (Matt.6:33). We’ll make time every day to be with Him alone, to read and meditate upon His Word; and Pray by listening to Him and speaking to Him.
Because you and I Seek and study His Word we will also:
DO and Practice the Truth that we’re learning from God’s Word, by applying it to our life each day. Here is where we imitate our Commander Jesus Christ (Eph.5:1-2).
Now, the Fruit from Seeking His Word and Doing His Word is:
TEACHING His Word to others; by the words we say and the life we live.(John 13:34-35)
In other words, Love God the most, Seek Him First, Serve God and others with God’s Love, and by our words and our life we will Teach and inspire others to do the same.
This is the Model that our Commander Jesus Christ left for you and I. Love, Seek, Serve, and Teach. This is what Love Does! This is A Guideline for Life! Oooooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
Jesus and Billy
