WHAT IS DWELLING IN YOU? THE WORD OR THE WORLD?
“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.”Colossians 3:16 KJV
Let me welcome you to October, the 10th month with the theme, 'Power in the Word of God'. The Word will work for you in Jesus name, Amen.
You will recall we have discussed themes like 'Power in the Blood and Power in the Name of Jesus'. As powerful as the name of Jesus is, it is amazing that the Bible teaches us that God honours His WORD more than His name. “.......for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.”Psalms 138:2c KJV
The Bible is the word of God, and indeed His mind. Hebrews 4:12 states: “For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” This shows that the Word is a living book. The question is, is it alive in you? In other words, do you allow the word of God to dwell in you? If the Word does not dwell in you, the world will. And the consequences are deadly. If you take a look again at the above verse, you will see that theWord of God has the ability to impact not only your spirit and your mind, but also your physical body. That is, God’s Word reaches right into your joints and bone marrow! That means as you study and allow the word to dwell in you, it goes first into your mind, then into your spirit. Then as you continue to meditate on it, it goes right into your physical body, and impacts every part.
What a power working word? Wow, talk about mighty power in the word of God!The Word of God is powerful, because it is guaranteed by God to be effective.
