When Jesus had finished speaking, He said to Simon, “Put out into deep water, and let down the nets for a catch.”
Simon answered, “Master, we’ve worked hard all night and haven’t caught anything. But because you say so, I will let down the nets.”
When they had done so, they caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break. So they signaled their partners in the other boat to come and help them, and they came and filled both boats so full that they began to sink. Luke 5:4-7
Tried it before? Bringing souls to Christ. We may have tried as did Simon in catching fish. Yet, he cast out the net and was blessed!
And Jesus said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. Mark 16:15-16
You are asked to spread The Word, do you?
Quite simply; what has The Word done in and to your life?
The Bible presents us with the history of decisions made by individuals and nations regarding the will of God. … The Bible instructs every person to consider his or her personal way of life: “Be very careful, then, how you live – not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.
One way to practically apply is to include the scripture into your prayers, for example, you would say, “Father, I have need of a vehicle and I stand on your word in Philippians 4:19 for my vehicle in Jesus’ name, Amen.” From that point on since you have prayed, you wouldn’t continue to pray for the same thing.
The first thing we will discuss is the definition of practically applying the Word of God.
When one practically applies the word of God, this means that a person will go to the bible and locate a scripture or scriptures pertaining to the situation they are going through.
They will then study that scripture. Once the person gains an understanding of the scripture, they will then begin to apply it to their everyday life.
In order to gain the full understanding of the scripture, one might enlist the help of their Pastor or someone who they trust to be a mature Christian.
Once they have an understanding of the scripture, then it is time for application to occur.
For example, let’s say that you are in need of a car.
You research and get an understanding of Philippians 4:19 which states that my God shall supply all of my needs according to his riches and glory by Christ Jesus. After you research and understand the scripture, you apply.
One way to practically apply is to include the scripture into your prayers, for example, you would say, “Father, I have need of a vehicle and I stand on your word in Philippians 4:19 for my vehicle in Jesus’ name, Amen.”
From that point on since you have prayed, you wouldn’t continue to pray for the same thing. Instead, you would thank Him for what has been done.
This is an act of you releasing your faith to show that you are trusting in what God’s word said.
You will be amazed at the wisdom, open doors, and even people that will begin to surface with a connection to your need.
God loves you and He wants you to know how to use His word in your life.
Read His word and apply it to your everyday life and experience heaven on earth. I am speaking from experience. God bless you!
