PRIORITY OF THE WORD

Acts 6:2
Then the twelve called the multitude of the disciples unto them, and said, It is not reason that we should leave the word of God, and serve tables. [KJV]

There came a time when the early Church needed some more administration especially in the distribution of food among brethren. The apostles weighed the options and decided their primary assignment must not change even in the face of an emergency. They should never allow their devotion to God's word suffer by attending to even legitimate contingencies.

A similar scenario played out at Bethany. Jesus was in the house of Mary and Martha. Martha thought cooking for the Lord was important and accused her sister Mary of not being helpful in that regard. But Mary, sitting at the Lord's feet listening to God's word was commended by the Lord. Jesus arbitrated between the two sisters this way; "Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things: But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her." (Luk 10:41-42).

Scriptures tell us that God magnifies His word above His name (Psa 138:2). And He is committed to someone who 'trembles' at His word (see Isa 66:1-2). The man who 'trembles' at God's word will resist any activity (no matter how legitimate) that threatens his attention to God's word.

We give priority to God's word in our lives when we observe a regular time of studying Scriptures. We also do this by listening to Spirit-filled servants of God. And also obeying God's words when we know them. Go and do likewise today and always.

Prayer confession: Lord, I put Your word first in my life. I trust you to put my life in order. Amen.
- Pas Adeolu Olumodeji
