“Did you know it’s possible for a person to listen to biblical preaching and teaching, and even read the Bible himself, yet have it make it little difference in his life? My point is this: It takes more than just the mechanical exposure to the Bible to accomplish the renewing of the mind. It takes a receptive heart that is eager to receive the word-a mind that desires to be renewed……Only the heart that is made ready to receive the Word will produce fruit.“ Dr. David Jeremiah: I never thought I’d see the day
This is so true and it explains why so many Christians never get to experience change in their lives and produce fruit. The productivity of God’s word in your life will depend upon your receptivity. How are you receiving the Word when you read it or hear it preached?
