When we hear the Word of God and receive it into our hearts then the Holy Spirit can use the truth to transform us from within. God “writes” the Word upon our hearts and we become “a living word” that others may read, and our lives can influence them to trust Christ.
How we live is important because it backs up what we say. Moses admonished parents to discuss God’s Word in the home, among their children, and to allow the Word to guide their minds and hands as they work throughout the day.
Obedience to the Word of God is a sign that we love Jesus, it is also a sign that we are spiritually fit. To love God and worship and serve Him is the highest privilege we can have, so when the Lord commands us to obey, He is inviting us to that which is the best.
Deuteronomy 6:6-7 “These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children.”
