1st Thessalonians 2:10-13 we find written, ” You are witnesses, and so is God, of how holy, righteous and blameless we were among you who believed. For you know that we dealth with each of you as a father deals with his own children, encouraging, comforting and urging you to live worthy of God, who calls you into his kingdom and glory. And we also thank God continually because,when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men, but as it actually is, the word of God, which is at work in you.
The word of God brings spiritual blessings in Christ. The word of God allows us to be adopted as God’s children through Christ. The word of God gives forgiveness of sins through Christ. The word of God provides redemption through Christ. The word of God allows us to be united with Christ through his Holy Spirit. The word of God gives us a choice between spiritual life and spiritual death
In our society today as in the past, there are many changes taking place and they put each one of us in a position to choose the thoughts of people or the thoughts of God. To choose what people say is right or to choose what God says is right. To beleive in many gods or The One and Only True and Living All Wise God of the Holy Bible. The gracious God that we serve allows us to choose spiritual life or spiritual death. When we have to choose, do we obey God or people?
Prayer: Holy Father we thank you for your word, your word is spirit and it is your spirit that brings forth life. Thank you Lord for the gift of the Holy Spirit that leads us into all truth. Protect your people from the world, the enemy which is satan and his angels and even protect us from ourselves. We Praise you in the might, powerful name of Jesus Christ Amen
