I Thessalonians 2:13 For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.
This is one of those verses that give me so much hope and excitement in the work that I do. The Word of God is just that, God’s Word. He uses His Word. It works effectually. The Word of God is alive. It acts in us. The Word of God is efficient. It accomplishes its work in the person.
Believing this verse I have just decided to spend my life telling people what it says. I will preach it clearly and simply. I will not try to appear over intelligent or that I am a guru that can understand it while others can’t. I will simply say what the Word says and watch it do its work.
In my years of ministry I have found that the Word of God will do its work. I can stand confidently and preach it and watch God work.
