What role does the word of God play in your life, oh professing Christian?
“Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you.”
Colossians 3:14
Does it?  Does the word of Christ “richly dwell within you?”  How so?  Could you name the 6th book of the Bible?  Could you find the book of Philemon without a table of contents?  How many verses do you have memorized?  3?  30?  300?
“This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth,
but you shall meditate on it day and night…”

Joshua 1:8

Does this describe your lifestyle, oh professing Christian?  Is the word of God on the “tip of your tongue?”  Is it consistently in your thoughts throughout the day?  Are you, “always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you?” (1 Peter 3:15).

Brothers and sisters, we live at a time in history that the Bible describes as an age of “strong delusion” (see 2 Thessalonians 2:10-12).  According to Jesus, thousands of pastors and parishioners think they are saved, but are not (see Matthew 7:21-27).

The Old Testament prophet Hosea described a similar time in Israel when outwardly the nation was experiencing a time of prosperity and growth, but inwardly, moral corruption and spiritual adultery permeated the people and the priests:

“Listen to the word of the Lord…
For the Lord has a case against the inhabitants of the land…
There is no truth, no faithful love,
and no knowledge of God in the land
So you will stumble by day,
and the prophet also will stumble with you by night…
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.
Because you have rejected knowledge,
I also will reject you from being my priest.
Since you have forgotten the law of your God,
I also will forget your children.”

Hosea 4:1,5-6, bold mine
