When do we despise God’s Word?

Share |

We despise God’s Word:

  1. When we consider worldly matters more important than hearing God’s Word.

    Luke 8:11,14: From Jesus’parable of the sower: The seed is the Word of God....The seed which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection.

  2. When we refuse to hear God’s Word.

    Luke 14: 16-24: Jesus’parable of the great banquet. The invited guests refused to come because worldly matters were more important to them. Read the entire parable.

  3. When we do not believe the Word and do not want to live in accordance with it.

    Heb. 4:2: For unto us was the Gospel preached, as well as unto them; but the Word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.

    James 1:22: Be ye doers of the Word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
