Do you like to write? Sometimes I do. Sometimes I go more on my feelings; I just scribble things down when I feel like it. While thinking about this subject, the first thing that came to my mind was what God says. Write His Word in your heart. There are so many reasons that we should do this.
First of all, if we truly love the Lord our God with all our heart, then it will be our desire to know Him better. How do we do that? To know anyone better, you spend time with them. Read His Word, do it, and write all you can upon the tables of your heart so you will have a wellspring upon which to draw.
Pro_3:3 Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart:
Look at the word written by this composer:
The love of God is greater far
Than tongue or pen can ever tell.
It goes beyond the highest star
And reaches to the lowest hell.
The guilty pair, bowed down with care,
God gave His Son to win;
His erring child He reconciled
And pardoned from his sin.
O love of God, how rich and pure!
How measureless and strong!
It shall forevermore endure—
The saints’ and angels’ song.
When hoary time shall pass away,
And earthly thrones and kingdoms fall;
When men who here refuse to pray,
On rocks and hills and mountains call;
God’s love, so sure, shall still endure,
All measureless and strong;
Redeeming grace to Adam’s race—
The saints’ and angels’ song.
Could we with ink the ocean fill,
And were the skies of parchment made;
Were every stalk on earth a quill,
And every man a scribe by trade;
To write the love of God above
Would drain the ocean dry;
Nor could the scroll contain the whole,
Though stretched from sky to sky.
-Frederick Martin Lehman
We could not even fill the ocean when we write about the love of God. Nor could the heavens contain all that has ever been written about Him. What love!
-When we realize the things that God has done for us, we should write them as memorials before Him. (Exodus 17) What blessing we receive when we go back and read these memorials. What blessings our children and grandchildren might receive if we write down these memorials and they are able to read them when we are gone.
-Moses was given the ten commandments which God Himself wrote on tablets of stone. They have never gone away although the devil continually seeks to destroy them. God’s Word will never pass away.
-We are to teach God’s Word diligently to our children. How? Basically by writing it everywhere we can think of.
Write it on their hearts and minds by talking about it all the time.
And literally write it upon your walls and doorposts. What kind of decor do you have hanging in your house. We all love beautiful things. Why not find some lovely Scripture prints and hang them on your walls.
Print out Scripture verses that your children can see and memorize. Or involve them in a Scripture memory program.
Buy Scripture related items for the whole family.
Remember: Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart: (Proverbs 3:3) and Bind them upon thy fingers, write them upon the table of thine heart. (Proverbs 7:3)
And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen. (John 21:25)
1 John 1:4
And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.
