The Morning Devotional for April 13, 2021:
The Preaching of God’s Word, Part 12

My son, if you receive my words
and treasure up my commandments with you, (Prov. 2:1, ESV)

I have stored up your word in my heart,
that I might not sin against you. (Ps. 119:11, ESV)

As for that in the good soil, they are those who, hearing the word, hold it fast in an honest and good heart, and bear fruit with patience. (Luke 8:15, ESV)

But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing. (James 1:25, ESV)
