We Must Hear The Word Of God And Act On It.

Luke 4:31-5:11
‘His Word was with power’(32). Where there are hindrances, obstructing the flow of God’s Word, we must pray that God’s Word will be heard for ‘what it really is’- ‘not the word of men but the Word of God’(1 Thessalonians 2:13). Our hearing of God’s Word is not to be a superficial thing - Here, the people of Capernaum ‘tried to keep Him from leaving them’(42). Later, Jesus said, ‘You, Capernaum... shall be thrust down to hell’(10:15). We must hear the Word of God and act on it (1,3). We may feel, ‘it’s a waste of time’. We must be obedient to God: ‘at Your Word I will let down the nets’(5). We are to be ‘partners’ in the Lord’s work (7): ‘workers together with God’(2 Corinthians 6:1). All the glory belongs to the Lord: We are ‘sinful’- Through His grace, we can win others for Him (8,10).
