Day 16 - The Word - Living-Giving (May 18)

The Word – Life-giving

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness. – 2 Timothy 3:16

The life of God, which gives life to the world, is in His word. It was by His word that Jesus healed disease and cast out demons. By His word He stilled the sea and raised the dead; and the people bore witness that His word was with power. He spoke the word of God as He had spoken it to all the Old Testament writers. The whole Bible is a manifestation of Christ. It is our only source of power. – Gospel Workers, 250

Heart Challenge

Isn’t it incredible that the Bible - God’s Word - is so much more than just a collection of ancient writings? It is inspired, meaning, God was directly involved in helping the faithful authors put their God-breathed thoughts to “paper.” Inculcated into these words is His life-giving, and life-changing power to revive, restore, and redeem. But it is only activated by faith.

Do you truly believe what God says in His Word? When was the last time you took God at His Word and trusted that what He promised He would do, He will do, even when your feelings tell you otherwise? Will you let God’s Word revive and restore your soul, today?
