How Do we Grow in Grace?
We grow in Grace by
The Word
'Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.' "Matt4:4
No word, no light or life.
The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you are spirit and they are life.John6:63NIV
His word brings divine direction

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.(Ps119:105)

Crave for the word like Job "Neither have I gone back from the commandment of his lips; I have esteemed the words of his mouth more than my necessary food.
(Job23:12 KJV)

2Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, (1Pet 2:2)

The Word brings Good Success,prosperity, advancement, increase, development, progress, fruitfulness.

8 Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful. (Jos 1:8)

Blessed is the man
who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked
or stand in the way of sinners
or sit in the seat of mockers.
2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD,
and on his law he meditates day and night.
3 He is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither.
Whatever he does prospers.

The word brings healing, refreshment, revival.

It is an offensive weapon to be used against the enemy.

17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; (Ephe6:17)

Man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God. ( Matt4:4)

His word is a lamp to your feet and a light to your path. It is medicine to your body. It is the will of God and the mind of God. It is spirit and life to those who find it.

20 My son, pay attention to what I say;
listen closely to my words.
21 Do not let them out of your sight,
keep them within your heart;
22 for they are life to those who find them
and health to a man's whole body.
23 Above all else, guard your heart,
for it is the wellspring of life.
24 Put away perversity from your mouth;
keep corrupt talk (Prov4:20-24)

I Delight in Your Word.
(Ps.119:9,15-16,105; Ps.1:1-3; Jos.1:8)
(Sing the Psalms)
I delight in Your word.
Lord Your word lights my path.
I meditate in Your word,
So to be on the right path. X2

How can one keep pure his ways? (Leader)
By keeping to Your word (congr.)
How can one not go astray? (Leader)
By living by Your word.(congr.)

I delight in Your word
Lord Your word lights my path.
I meditate in Your word,
So to be on the right path.

How can one do all Your will? (Leader)
By keeping to Your word. (congr.)
How can one Your plan fulfil? (Leader)
By living by Your word. (congr.)

I delight in your wordX2
( also a Psalm)

The Right Attitude to the Word

Love it, live it, live in it.
Delight in it day and night.
Crave for it , pant for it.
Meditate on it day and night.
Cherish it, sing it, seek it.
Pray it, whine and pine for it,
Like babies would for milk.
Put it on my neck like a bracelet,
Plead my case with it.
Get lost in it, lose my self in it.
Read it, receive it, recite it, review it,
Remind myself of it.
Reflect on it , regard it as holy.
Research it, eat it, chew it, drink it,
Rejoice at it, accept it wholly and fully
Agree with it, apply it, obey it, bask in it
Embrace it, run the race of Grace with it,
Write it on the tablet of my heart pass it
Look long into it, assimilate it's truth,
Hide it in my heart, start the day with it.
Stand on it, hold on to it, esteem it,
Make much of it, make it first choice.
Ponder on, think of it always.
To be sort, desired more than gold or daily food
