As Christians, we are sponges. Yes, like the sponges in your kitchen sink. What am I talking about? Well, if we don’t immerse ourselves in the Word of God then we are dry. Nothing to give or show others. Sure, going to church once a week may moisten you, but you don’t have much. Moistened sponges need to be wrung hard just to get a little water out. Why put in all that effort for so little?
As Christians, we need get ourselves soaked. We need to be coming out into the world as dripping wet sponges. The Word of God needs to be something we can relate to every aspect of life.
When someone wants to ask us about God and the Bible, basically wringing us out, then it needs to be no problem. That last thing we want is someone wanting to know more about our faith and then finding out we are dry and essentially useless. You can’t use a dry sponge to do much of anything. You need it soaked.
How do we become soaked sponges that are not dry or simply moistened? That’s easy. Studying the Word of God daily and praying makes this second nature. In fact, that is why we have the daily devotionals on the website. That way you don’t have an excuse. You can read the verses, read the devotional, and see how it relates to our writers.
The best followers of Christ are dripping wet with knowledge and always ready to learn more. So, what are you?
