Life In The Word – Pastor Chris
Tuesday, August 15, 2017
And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus (2 Timothy 3:15).
God’s Word is what you need for your spiritual growth and development. It’s what you need for a balanced life of continual victory and success that you’ve received in Christ. This is so because you were created by the Word of God, which means the Word of God is your life; it’s your source, and every living thing must be connected to its source to survive. Man’s body was made from the dust of the ground, so man has to feed on what’s cultivated from the ground to survive.
Man, however, is a spirit, and the spirit of man wasn’t made from the dust of the ground; the spirit of man came from God’s Spirit, and was created with the Word of God. You, therefore, must continually feed on God’s Word to live triumphantly in life. Acts 20:32 says, “And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.”
It’s important to note here that the scripture wasn’t referring to everyone in the world, but to God’s children. The Apostle Paul says the Word is able to build you up, because that’s where you came from; that’s your origin; you’re born of the incorruptible seed of the Word; therefore, you must remain connected to the Word to live your best.
Through the Word, you condition your life for victory every day, such that no matter the circumstances you find yourself in, you’re always triumphant. 2 Corinthians 2:14 says, “Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.”
Dear Father, I thank you for my origin in you; I’m born of the incorruptible Word of God; therefore, I’m immune to the corrupting influences of my world, and I’m indestructible. The Word of God is working in me, producing in and through me, the result of its message, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
