An Example of Actions to Take with the Word of God

Ezra 7:10 “For Ezra had prepared his heart to seek the Law of the LORD, and to do it, and to teach statutes and ordinances in Israel.”

As we consider Ezra 7:10, we see that Ezra prepared his heart.  Pause to ponder that. To learn God’s Word started with his heart being prepared. The preparation would include sanctifying his heart. Recall that James speaks of removing the filthiness of the heart so one can receive the Word in their heart. (James 1:21 says, “Therefore lay aside all filthiness and overflow of wickedness, and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.”)

With a sanctified heart, Ezra studied God’s Word!  He went to work to understand what was being said so it could be explained to be applied.
Regarding studying God’s Word Paul to Timothy to “Study to show himself approved unto God, a workman that need not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. (2 Timothy 2:15)

He then submitted to God’s Word (to do it). May we never forget in our learning that we are to be living out in obedience to what we are learning!  We are to be practitioners of what we preach and teach.  Ezra will now be able to teach with both his lips and his life.

And then Ezra shared what he had learned with others. A discipler passes on what they learn.  2 Timothy 2:2 says,  “And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.”

We learn from Ezra in Exra 7:10 to set our hearts on learning God’s Word! 
We learn that His heart was prepared – sanctified.
We learn that he studied!
We learned that he submitted!
We learn that he shared.
What an example for any believer!!!
