In Psalm 1:3 the person whose delight is the law of the Lord is compared to a tree planted by streams of water. Fresh streams result in fruitful seasons and healthy growth. Being Grounded in Truth & Growing in Grace provides the same spiritual benefits. The constant stream of truth from God’s word, coupled with His grace provides healthy spiritual growth - Christ in us, the result of the cross. Truth and grace are essential ingredients as we seek to make disciples of one another at LJBC and of others within our sphere of influence.
Hebrews 11:6 tell us that God is a rewarder! “6 And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.” The NKJV say “those who seek Him diligently”, which is explained in the definition of the word “seek”. Enoch is a man who is described as a one who walked with God and was then taken up. That truth from Genesis 5, along with the Spirit of God, motivated the writer of Hebrews to inform his readers that God is a rewarder of those who seek Him. Enoch is the 2nd example among many in Hebrews 11 of those who diligently sought God.
We will find two biblical truths operating in the lives of those we consider in our God is a Rewarder series: 1. There is a seeking Him, a relationship, a walking with God, and 2. That one who seeks Him works on God’s faith economy, that is, God says it and they believe it and act upon it. God’s reward(s) is the result.
Join us in person if you can, because there is nothing that substitutes the fellowship with other believers, or online if you are not able to be physically present. Either way, may we seek God diligently and believe Him for what He has said.
