"God's Word: You Can't Live Without It! "
“Sanctify them by the truth; your Word is truth.” John 17: 17 NIV
The Spirit of God uses the Word of God to make us like the Son of God. To become like Jesus, we must fill our lives with His Word.
The Bible says, “Through the Word we are put together and shaped up for the tasks God has for us.” 2 Timothy 3: 17 MSG. God’s Word is not like any other word. It is alive.
Jesus reminds us that His Word is both Spirit and life in John 6:63 NASB. When God speaks, things change. Read Genesis and you’ll notice that even creation changed at His Word.
God’s Word generates life, creates faith, produces change, frightens the devil, causes miracles, heals hurts, builds character, transforms circumstances, overcomes adversity and does a whole bunch of other things along. It also guarantees our future forever.
We cannot live without the Word of God! Never take it for granted. You should consider it as essential for your life.
Just as you eat 3 square meals a day try to make sure you have 3 contacts with God’s Word each day. You can do that by having a morning devotion, perhaps an internet devotion that you get (I have one if you don’t currently receive one) and then an evening devotion as you go to bed.
Think about how spending more time with God might change your life.
Peace in the Lord,
