Did you know God regularly sends forth His Word to change the lives of men, women, boys and girls? Through His Word God imparts love and joy and peace and many more inner comforts. The Bible says, “The word of God is living and active” (Hebrews 4:12). It speaks of the gospel saying, “It is the power of God” (Romans 1:16). And God says, “So shall My word be which goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return to me empty, without accomplishing what I desire, and without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it” (Isaiah 55:11).
But ever since God created the world by the power of His Word, men and women have rebelled against Him. And they have refused God’s Word. But why do men and women avoid God’s Word? And why do they refuse to read God’s Word in the Bible? Is it because they are dead in sin (Ephesians 2:1)? Is it because God’s word is “foolishness” to them (1 Corinthians 2:14)? Yes! And as a result, men and women reject the very life they need, the life of the gospel.
What about you? Do you need new life brought to you by the Word of God? Then consider what Jesus said. “The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and are life” (John 6:63).
