Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
“Know, Do, and Teach Righteousness”
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.”
“Know, Do, and Teach Righteousness,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
This is the duty of every Warrior of God. To Know, to Do, and to Teach Righteousness to others, is what Our Commander expects from each one of us.
How do we do this? By Loving God more than anything or anyone else. Because we Love Him Supremely We Want to Know Him and His Ways!
Then as we Know Him and His Righteousness we begin to Do and Practice what He Does - “Live Righteously.”
Now that We Know Righteousness, and Do Righteousness in our Life, we Teach others to:
Know, Do, and Teach others Righteousness.
This is what Ezra did and his life influenced the World.
We follow the Model of our Commander as Son of Man. He Loved His Father more than He loved His own life. He Knew the Scriptures better than any man on earth because He read them and studied them daily. Because He Knew them He also Did them; He Practiced Righteousness in the way He Lived among others. And because He Did them, He Taught others by the way He Lived in Righteousness.
Ezra prepared his heart to Seek the Lord (to Know Righteousness) - and then Knowing God and His Commandments Ezra Obeyed and Practiced God’s Commandments. Lastly, Ezra became an “expert in the words of the commandments of the LORD and of His statutes to Israel.”(v.11), and taught Israel the Law of God.
In other words:
Because we Love God more than anything and everyone else we WANT To Know Him and His ways.
We Know what we Learn -
We Do what we Learn -
We Teach what we Do.”
It all begins with preparing our heart to Seek The Lord each and every day. That’s what we do every day as we meet with our Commander and King.
We Know, We Do, and We Teach Righteousness because we Love our Commander and King Jesus Christ! Ooooh Rah!
