I have spoken with many people over the last 40 plus years I have been ministering God’s Word and many times I have had them complain about the 'Don’ts' they think God says in His Word.
I pointed out that there were more DO’S than DON’TS and if they would do the DO’S they would not have the time to concentrate on any DON’TS.
John 15:4 Abide in me, and I in you as the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
Here is one of the most important DO’S in The Word.
You must remain In Christ and keep your relationship with Him fresh and up to date.
Some have said "I can’t afford the time to spend in The Word today!"
Well I want to tell you can’t afford NOT TO stay in His Word today. Your relationship with Christ must be up to date, especially when things are getting tough and the enemy is badgering you.
The Lord is trying to let you know He took care of the problem and Satan wants you to try to fix it yourself. That’s why he sent the problem in the first place, just to get you busy so you would not have time for The Word of God.
But you must realise it was fixed 2,000 years ago at Calvary.
John 15:5 I am the vine, you are the branches He who abides in Me and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing!
Staying in Christ is not something that happens automatically - it’s something you have to choose to do. It takes perseverance, discipline and diligence.
Staying in Christ is not an occasional thing you do, it is something you do continually - that is where you gather strength and power to live your life successfully in this world today. You must learn to live your life while you are in the world FROM the Kingdom of God, where you are in Christ.
Your testimony should be based on John 15:5 and Philippians 4:13 I remain in Christ and He remains in me. Apart from Him I can do nothing, but through Him I can do all things because He gives me strength.
So today just concentrate on the DO’S and forget the DON'TS.
