Love this 2 minute clip from one of Papa Hagin's sermons, Possessing What Is Ours. Pretty much sums up what I know about the Christian life. I've added the slides for emphasis.
- If we want people to receive we have to get God's Word into their hearts.
- In order to get God's word into their hearts we have to deal with their head, intellect, emotions, traditions, religious training. We do this by teaching and teaching and teaching the Word of God. But to paraphrase Jesus, you can't put new teaching into full cups.
- Meditating on God's Word will cause it, eventually, to come alive in your heart. Preaching God's Word can cause it to come alive in the hearts of receptive hearers.
Listen to the whole thing as they say. Here's a link where you can purchase this message as part of the four message series, Healing Belongs To Us, from Kenneth Hagin Ministries. Highly recommended.
HELP FEED THE OX
If this website has blessed you spiritually then help keep it going by donating some food for the ox.
1 Timothy 5:17 NLT Elders who do their work well should be paid well, especially those who work hard at both preaching and teaching. 18 For the Scripture says, “Do not keep an ox from eating as it treads out the grain.” And in another place, “Those who work deserve their pay!”
