Living the Amen

Posted on September 4, 2020 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

Did you ever notice how we sometimes say “AMEN” to indicate our agreement with something someone says? For example, the Pastor during a sermon may say something that really strikes our heart and we agree with either an audible or silent AMEN!! By that we mean, “Yes”, “I agree”, “Let it be so.” But when the service is over, we go home and forget all about it.

I want to challenge us to start living the AMEN. What I mean by that is that we give more than lip service to the truths that we hear. It’s easy to agree, but how are we allowing those truths to change us, to make a difference, to draw us into greater obedience?

It’s easy to fall into habits that become less and less meaningful over time. Let our AMEN be more that a habit or an emotional response to truth. Let our AMEN be a true, enthusiastic agreement and embrace of the truth of God. When God’s Spirit prompts our spirit with a revelation of truth, let’s not allow it to be a momentary experience of agreement, but rather a life-changing experience of obedience.

My question to you today is, are you living the AMEN?
