I just finished drafting a lesson for a theology class at Church tomorrow where, this week, I’m teaching on the doctrine of Scripture. I referred to Isaiah 55:11 as part of showing just what it is that God’s word does. I hope the students get a good understanding of how wonderful it is that our God loves us so much he gave us his word in writing!

So much of our daily listening is passive–TV and other electronics, in particular. With the privilege of worshipping our God must come active listening. All the components of our worship are meant to serve Him. We must come to worship with a thirst for His word. Actively listening to it and letting it “soak” into our souls leads us to glorify our God!

You are so right that God’s word will always act upon the hearer; how it acts on a particular person remains to be seen.

This reminds me of the quote in Dual Citizens that rebukes us for being “bored with God’s prescribed means of grace.” When we fail to do our part, we can put pressure on our Pastors to “succum to the world’s faulty methods.” of which I have been under the preaching of both kinds. Thankfully, my thirst is quenched when under expository preaching (the gospel) instead of the sugary soda of the topical/application sermon (the law). Unfortunately, “we have a hunger to be told what to do” instead of allowing the law to “undress” us and the gospel to “redress” us. Thank you for layering my learning along side the lessons that I learned from that book. I love when that happens!
