Hold Firmly to the Bible
Hold firmly to the word of life; then, on the day of Christ’s return, I will be proud that I did not run the race in vain and that my work was not useless.
- Philippians 2:16
The same Word that spoke the universe into being can release divine power in our lives!
- But we have a responsibility to appreciate the Word, and not treat it the way we treat the words of men. The Word of God is unique: it is inspired, authoritative, and infallible. If we do not appreciate the Word, then God’s power cannot energize our lives.
- But we must also appropriate the Word—“receive it.” This means much more than listening to it, or even reading and studying it. To “receive” God’s Word means to welcome it and make it a part of our inner being. God’s truth is to the spiritual man what food is to the physical man.
- Then we must apply the Word; it works only in those “that believe.” When we trust God’s Word and act on it, then God’s power is released in our lives.
