The world needs the Word….

I have been thinking deeply about how our world desperately needs Word of God. As we look around, there are churches everywhere. And, yes; we need more churches. This is an important time for the Church of Jesus Christ to arise with the answer to the world\’s needs.

Not to meddle. But, could it be that many churches have substituted unadulterated preaching of the Word with fundraising strategies, empowerment sessions, concerts, popularity contests, politicking,entertainment, and other things?

It is of no hyperbole to say that people of all cultures and nations have real issues and need the realness of God to guide us in every aspect of our lives. As you know, life is filled with so many ups and downs. Even the most faithful ones among us encounter situations that will almost knock the wind out of them.

Indeed, we need the Word of God!

Considering multiple contemporary global crises along with personal challenges that each of us faces, we need to develop an intense desire for God\’s Word. Now is an important time to dig deeper in the Word, urgently seeking God\’s guidance.

This week, Antipas, may we meditate together on these passages concerning the Word of God?
  1. \”Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.\” Psalms 119:105
  2. \”I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.\” Psalms 119:11
  3. \”And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.\” John 1:14
  4. \”But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.\” James 1:22
  5. \”But [Jesus] answered, \’It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’\” Matthew 4:4

The Word of God sustains us through the toughest of times. The Word provides shalom when our hearts are overwhelmed. The Word encourages us when we feel at our lowest. The Word teaches us how to deal with difficult people and in difficult situations. Importantly, the Word teaches us how to live in such a way that pleases the Lord.

And, yes; hearing and studying the Word will move our souls. The Word will put a dance in our feet and a shout in our mouth. Surely, the Word of God will quicken our spirits and stir-up the glory of the Lord in our midst.

Have a great week in the Word!
