The hardest thing when you start reading, memorizing, and meditating on the Bible is that it gives the Holy Spirit a greater foothold in your life.
It certainly isn't a bad thing, but once you know something, you are responsible for it.
For example, once you've spent time in 2 Corinthians 5:11-21, you realize that as believers, we are God's ambassadors. We become His voice in what is essentially a foreign land.
You can choose to act on what you've learned, or you can remain quiet, choosing to not do the job you were entrusted with.
But you must choose.
The word of God is not simply a volume of stories to read and think about. The Bible calls for action. The Bible calls for change. Click to tweet!
When the time comes to move, when the Holy Spirit recalls to your mind what you've read and studied, if you ignore the promptings, it is as good as if you had never read it at all.
Has the Holy Spirit brought a passage of scripture to your mind shortly after you read it, asking you to take action? Was it difficult or easy to respond?
