DAY 268 OF 365 IN 2021
LET HIS WORDS TAKE ROOT
Luke 9:44 As for you, let these words sink into your ears: for the Son of Man is going to be handed over to men.”
When one wants to draw attention to their words, they begin by saying ‘listen carefully’. In the Gospel today, Jesus uses another combination of word to place a spotlight on the words he was about to speak “Let these words sink into your ears”
There was a specific message which followed this opening remark, but for us, every word that proceeds out of the mouth of the LORD has to sink into our ears. Not just there, it ought to sink down into our spirit and become inseparable from us. It ought to become an attachment that becomes a part of our everyday walk.
His words are spirit, and they are life, they are the system by which all things are sustained and held together. Thus, by allowing the Word of God to take root and be planted in our heart, we create room for the expression of the His glory in our lives. For we know that ‘His words never return void, but accomplishes that for which they have been sent.’
