Topic: Put the Word First

Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth. Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: love her and keep thee. – Proverbs 4:5-6

Recently, God has been raising ever-growing numbers of hungry people. Hungry to know their Lord more deeply. Hungry to serve Him—in pulpits, on mission fields, in homes, in office buildings, and anywhere else He might choose to send them.

They are people who aren’t content to find the path of least resistance and coast their way into heaven. No, they’re determined to run the race…to run, as the apostle Paul said, to obtain the prize. Spiritually speaking, they are on the road to excellence.

Are you among them?

If so, I want to share four simple words that, I believe, will enable you to run the race like a winner.

Put the Word first.

Whether your goal is to be an excellent evangelist or a first-rate engineer in the service of the Lord, it is the wisdom that comes from the Word of God that will get you there.

Jesus said it this way: “Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you” (Matthew 6:33).

So, commit yourself right now to do whatever it takes to saturate yourself with the Word of God. Use every available moment to read, study, listen to, and meditate.

I know it won’t be easy, but if you decide to amount to something in the ministry of Jesus Christ and are determined to take the Great Commission seriously, then be diligent. Put the Word first, and there will surely be glorious victories ahead.
