Key Verse

“But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it” (Luke 11: 28).

Text — Luke 11:24-28


In his book, “Life, the Truth, and Being Free,” Steve Maraboli wrote that, “God’s word is not just to be heard and repeated; it is to be breathed, lived, and emulated with each action.”

Our passage teaches about the power of unclean spirits and the importance of keeping one’s house (i.e., one’s heart) clean to resist the influence of evil. If a person allows sin to take up residence in his or her heart, it will become increasingly difficult to resist and overcome temptations. The key to avoiding this situation is to actively seek after righteousness and to be vigilant in keeping one’s heart clean by hearing and following God’s word.

“Blessed” in our text, refers to the state of being favoured by God or experiencing divine favour. According to Jesus, the actual source of blessings is not physical relationships or circumstances, but rather by hearing and following God’s word. This implies that blessings originate from connecting with God rather than external factors. If you know and obey God, you’ll be blessed with prosperity, good health, or simply happiness.


Know and obey God.


 To be blessed, practise righteousness and reject wickedness. like Jesus.
