"God's Word Can Do the Impossible"
“He chose to give us birth through the Word of truth.” James 1: 18a NIV
God wants to use His Word to give you a fresh start in life. Without it you could never be saved. You wouldn’t be headed for heaven. You wouldn’t know about Jesus’ death on the cross. You wouldn’t know about God’s purpose for your life.
God wants to give you all of that; it all starts with His Word. He uses His Word to recreate us. It reminds us that we get a do-over. Even when we sin, God forgives us and gives us the opportunity to come back to Him.
The Bible is often compared to a seed. Once it takes root in your heart, it begins to sprout and grow, eventually bearing fruit. The plant that comes out of the ground looks different than what went into the ground.
In the same way, when God’s Word enters you it sprouts and grows. Your gifts of service to others in Jesus name are the fruit that makes you different than your old self.
In John 6: 63 Jesus says of the Word, “It is full of spirit and life. It has power, power to transform. It can do the impossible. It can change your life.” What part of life do you feel powerless to change? God can help you do that.
Make God’s Word a regular part of your life and get ready to see the impossible happen!
Peace in the Lord,
