This morning as I was about to open my Bible study book, the picture on the front cover “jumped” out at me!
I had been so focused on just noticing the words, I had missed the picture of a cup of water! God spoke to me through this!
Just recently I spoke at a Ladies’ Ministry event on “The Ministry of a Cup – Recognizing God’s Call in Everyday Life.” I used Matthew 10:42 as our focal verse – “And whoever gives just a cup of cold water to one of these little ones because he is a disciple, I assure you: He will never lose his reward!”
So when I saw the cup on the front cover of my book, it reminded me of James 1:22 – “But don’t just listen to God’s Word. You must do what it says. Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves.” NLT
How many times do we get caught up in studying God’s Word without obeying it?! His Word is like none other, It is living and active according to Hebrews 4:12! Therefore, it changes lives as we share it!
So let’s not miss doing His Word and serving those that are right in front of our eyes – just like the cup of water.
