God’s Powerful Word
For this reason we also thank God without ceasing, because when you received the word of God which you heard from us, you welcomed it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which also effectively works in you who believe.—1 Thessalonians 2: 13
If the Bible was the invention of man, you must confess that they had to be the smartest men who ever lived. Forty-four different authors wrote over the span of 1,500 years, and yet, it is one unified story that has stood the test of time and extreme critical analysis. No other book has had such a profound influence for good in the world than the Bible. It has been likened unto an anvil that has been hammered upon for centuries by skeptics and doubters. The hammers wore away and have been discarded, but the Anvil still stands.
**The Bible is unique in its prophetic aspects, as it speaks of things years—even thousands of years, in some instances—before they take place.
Paul described the Word as that “which effectually works in you that believe.” It is so beautiful to see the effect of the Word on the lives of those who were nearly destroyed by sin. Once they are cleansed, redeemed, and set free, their lives become meaningful. God’s Word brings change—not only to those in the church in Thessalonica 2,000 years ago, but to those in the church today.
Father, thank You for the power of Your Word and for the way You use it to change and restore lives. And Lord, how thankful we are that You are the same yesterday, today, and forever. Help us that we might receive and then share Your truth. In Jesus’ name, amen.
