I. Prepared to Receive
A. We need a spirit of receptivity. (v.19)
B. We need a spirit of humility. (v. 21)
God commands us to put aside anything that is counterproductive to His word.
Acts. 17:11- “readiness of mind”- a prepared heart.
II. Planning to Obey (v.22)
A. Hear the Word.
Really HEAR the Word.
2 Tim 4:3-4; Mark 7:16; 2 Tim. 3:15
We underestimate the intellectual ability of our children. Why not teach them the Word of God from the beginning?
B. Obey the Word.
You’ve heard the Word of God, now what are you going to do with it?
Be performers of God’s Word.
Many people mark their Bibles. Does the Bible ‘mark’ you?

A. Remember the Word (23-24)
The Bible is like a mirror to your soul. What to we do with what God shows us?
