The Best of the Portals of Prayer

Read: Romans 10:8-17

“Blessed are those who hear the Word of God and keep it.”
Luke 11:28

The Blessed

The Spirit of God, who alone can make us beneficiaries of all that Christ has done on our behalf, does so by means of the Gospel. When He tells us the wonderful account of God’s love, He takes us by the hand, as it were, leads us to the foot of Calvary’s cross, and then explains to us who Jesus is and that He died and rose again for us. When You and I become so persuaded of this that we cry out, “that is my Lord and Savior”, then we realize the benefit of what Jesus did for us.
Our Lord also makes plain that hearing and knowing the Gospel can be without value unless we take the whole matter seriously and do something about it. If you say and believe, “Jesus died for me”, you will find a great peace. This is why the life of a child of God is marked by Christ, and Christian love.
O Holy Spirit of God, be with us in mercy and when we hear or read Your Word, that we might be enabled both to “hear and keep it”. For Jesus’ sake. Amen.
