Scripture Reading :Luke 1:3-4
It seemed good to me also, having had perfect understanding of all things from the very first, to write unto thee in order, most excellent Theophilus,That thou mightest know the certainty of those things, wherein thou hast been instructed.
Reflection: The introductory chapter of the Gospel of Luke underscores the need to hear the word of God over and over again. Luke writes this book to a man called Theophilus. Luke informs this man that he knows he has already been told of the account of the birth, live, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ which now forms the basis of our faith. However he is presenting the gospel over again to him so that Theophilus will come to the point of knowing the certainty of the word of God. The word ‘certainty’ means ‘undoubted truth and firmness’. When you get to the point where you hold God’s word as undoubted truth, your lifestyle gets automatically formatted by biblical standards. Nothing can move or change your faith! Keep in step with increased frequency of opportunities to hear the word. The more WORD you receive, the more CERTAIN you become!
Confession: The more WORD I receive, the more CERTAIN I become!
