For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
As the bible tells us, that the Word of God is living and active we find it difficult to experience the word being alive in us. And since we cannot find the word of God working realistically within our lives from our attitude towards our circumstances, we tend to move according to our own experiences. Also as the urgency of answer for our problems faced us, we automatically trust our instinct and look for the immediate answers without praying. This is the problem of many people and also believers that led them to not to pray and losing faith eventually. How then can we be able to look out for ourselves when this similar moment come?
- The Power of God’s Word.
We should first find and discover the power of God’s Word. In the beginning was the Word, and the word was with God, and the word was God (John 1:1). All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made (John 1:3). John testified how powerful God’s word is. And by this testimony John showed a great faith. He saw God’s covenant being fulfilled when Jesus came to him to be baptized by him, and watched God sending down the Holy Spirit for Jesus.
Jesus is the manifestation of God’s Word in this world (John 1:14), but the world cannot understand it. (John 1:5). Therefore, we have to look only to Jesus who is the Christ, who solved our spiritual problem that even the intellectuals, technologies, philosophy, the cultures and even religions cannot solve. This is the truth and power of the Word of God we need to discover.
- The Word being Alive.
The ever-living word of God should be observed within us and should be manifest on the things that we do. This is a time where we should reflect within ourselves on how we can make the Word alive in us. Take the Gospel of Christ as answer to us, we will then find ourselves entering into God’s presence and we will then realized more urgent prayer topics then will be able to restore prayer.
Jesus who is the true Prophet restored us back to the blessing of being with God, Jesus being the true Priest made us free from the sin and shame. Jesus who resurrected gave us the authority to put Satan under our feet. If we live this blessed life we will then discover that God is the one working in our lives to fulfill his great mission.
- Relaying the Word.
It does not matter if you are a pastor, a teacher, lay leader or anyone as long as you accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior, you have to definitely be relaying God’s word. First thing that you will observe from those people who are living in God’s word is that they are able to relay the Word of God without even forcing themselves to do it. They share God’s word spontaneously and with enjoyment.
Evangelism should not be done by force, but sharing the word of God and the Gospel is urgently needed now. Therefore, we as person who have the Gospel have to pray for the filling of the Holy Spirit to receive God’s guidance to change people’s lives through the Gospel.
We on our own cannot make the Gospel manifested in us, but through prayer we can be guided by God through the Holy Spirit being with us in every way.
Let us grab and hold on to the Gospel and let the Gospel change us momentarily by keeping ourselves inside God’s presence.
