Hearing and doing God’s word: The secret to becoming enlisted in God’s kingdom

Hearing and doing God’s word: The secret to becoming enlisted in God’s kingdom

By Dr Charles Adebanji

As we struggle in this dispensation to correct the ills of the past and the present, brought about by wrong teachings, we are daily compelled and challenged to decisively make a u-turn from the norms that have been illicitly sold to us, when prosperity preaching arrived from the coasts of preachers whose ulterior motives are at variance with the authentic gospel. At a particular time, they came to Jesus that his mother was looking for Him. He turned to them and made a profound statement that strikes us to the hilt today. What we learn is that hearing and doing God’s word cannot be underestimated. When we hear and do the word, we key into the DNA of the Master. You would agree with me that this is the most difficult aspect of Christianity. Hearing may be easy, but doing becomes the predicament. Let us ask God today to help us become incessant doers of the word even as hearing is important. When we do God’s word, the world becomes a better place. Greed, hate, and all other associates of the sin nature become extinguished. As we confront our world today, characterized by greed and acute displeasure, doing the word of God is capable of producing the power to destabilize the works of the enemy. The Bible says for this cause, the Son of God was manifested, to destroy the works of the enemy. For this to become effectual, we need to be daily transformed by renewing our minds with the word of God. We need to urgently embark on a rescue mission when our fathers and mothers in the faith are busy sharing spoils of war at the expense of the work of the Kingdom of God. Today’s preaching is centered on prosperity and not making the hearts of men and women right with God. To acquire the DNA of God, the process entails hearing and doing God’s word, and it shall be well with us. May God expedite actions that would promote the appetite to consciously ruminate on God’s word, such that doing the word would follow in us.

He replied, “My mother and brothers are those who hear God’s word and put it into practice.”—Luke 8:21
