Enthusiastic at the hearing of the word. 

I was in a certain church and the preacher was doing his thing. The message was true and not false in any way. 

People liked it and they were so happy at the revelation from God, others cried, coz it’s as though God himself was speaking. 

Me too I was blessed by the word of God but I was meditating on the word, a thought came in, and I looked at everyone so happy at the word , enthusiastic and I knew something is wrong. The message was true and the people were happy, this is in most times very rare. It’s mostly people getting happy at the message they want to hear but not at the true message. 

The Spirit makes it clear that as time goes on, some are going to give up on the faith and chase after demonic illusions put forth by professional liars. These liars have lied so well and for so long that they’ve lost their capacity for truth.

1 Timothy 4:1‭ MSG

The true message is normally unpleasant and mostly makes people run away from church .

But this message in church as true, so. Why were the people happy? 

Maybe they are true believers after the true message. 

Yes but another thought came in. After this joy and enthusiasm, do. They actually do what the word says when. They leave church? 

And the answer is of course no. Not all do practice it. 

As I was reading my Bible, I met this verse 

As for the seed that was spread on rocky ground, this refers to people who hear the word and immediately receive it joyfully. Because they have no roots, they last for only a little while. When they experience distress or abuse because of the word, they immediately fall away.

Matthew 13:20‭-‬21 CEB

So there actually those who joyfully receive the word of God but because they have no roots, they fall away. 

Now I pray that we might not just smile at the word but rather put into action. 

Paul was at a time fed up of such people. They listened to true words but they never grow in grace. 

We have a lot to say about this topic, and it’s difficult to explain, because you have been lazy and you haven’t been listening. Although you should have been teachers by now, you need someone to teach you an introduction to the basics about God’s message. You have come to the place where you need milk instead of solid food. Everyone who lives on milk is not used to the word of righteousness, because they are babies. But solid food is for the mature, whose senses are trained by practice to distinguish between good and evil.

Hebrews 5:11‭-‬14 CEB
