The Power Of The Word
We often speak about the Word of God but do we truly understand the significance of the Word of God?
Is there power in the Word of God?
Do you believe that the Word of God can transform you into His image and likeness?
If the Word of God has power why are we not seeing its manifestation in the believer’s lives?
Many people find the Bible difficult to understand while others disregard it as fables.
But for the true born again believers in Christ, the Word is the power of God (Romans 1:16).
In the beginning, was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him, nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. (John 1:1-4 NKJV)
The Word was in the beginning.
The Word was God.
The Word was with God.
The Word made all things.
The Word was life.
The Word was light that dwells among men.
The Word was the light that shines in the darkness.
The world was in so much darkness that they could not understand nor see the light.
He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. But as many as receive Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name; who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. (John 1:10-13 NKJV)
We understand that Jesus Christ is the Word who exists at the beginning of creation with God.
“My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand. I and My Father are one.” (John 10:29-30 NKJV)
But when Christ came to this earth He was born in an ordinary family in a poor village of Bethlehem, Judah.
Hence, no one believed that He was a king except the wise men and shepherds who visited Him at birth.
In spite of the numerous miracles that Jesus performed during His ministry on earth, many people still refused to believe that He was the promised Messiah.
The people with whom Jesus grew up despised and rejected Him. Eventually, they persecuted Him and delivered Him to the Romans to be crucified.
Although the reality of this story is painful it was the plan of God (Isaiah 53).
The Word came into the world to light the people’s darkness. They had to choose Him willingly but they did not.
However, Jesus’ death was not in vain. It was for a purpose. He died for the sins of the entire world and He rose again to give us a fresh start.
Therefore, anyone who receives this free gift of salvation has the power through the Word to become the sons or children of God and to receive everlasting life.
This is the power of the Word of God in action when you accept the Lord as your personal Saviour.
He comes into your heart.
He cleanses and makes all things in your life new.
He gives you abundant life in this world and everlasting life in the world to come.
He recreates you into His image and likeness thus you become the light of the world.
Therefore, you must not hide your light but ensure that it shines brightly so others will see your good work and glorify God (Matthew 5:14-16).
Knowing the power of the Word that dwells within you will empower you to walk in victory.
Do you know your power?
