The Word of God


God’s Word is living and active, and it has the power to change lives.

The Bible is the living Word of God, and my life has been built around that fact. My call to the ministry is grounded in its verses, and my marriage is built upon its principles. I have sought to bring up my children on the basis of its truth. The church I serve functions daily by its precepts. We are a Bible-believing, Bible-teaching Body of Christ. So I can truthfully tell you that everything I’m about—every relationship, every role, every assignment—is based upon the authority and truthfulness of God’s Word.

When God’s people meet for worship and His Word is read, proclaimed, studied and explained, amazing things happen—things that transcend music and words and offerings and emotions—because His Word is alive. It cuts, like a surgeon who would pierce the body in order to heal it. It softens, tenderizing hearts that are hard as steel. It melts icy souls that say, “Nothing can touch me here.” It convicts the complacent, leading to repentance. And lives are changed... every time.

Every week I receive letters from people who hear the Word of God and ask, “Did my wife tell you I was going to be at church?” Others say, “You must have known I was coming.” It has nothing to do with me. God’s Word is living and active, and it has the power to change lives. I know. It changed—and keeps changing—mine.

MEMORY VERSE Thy word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path (Psalms 119:105).

James 4; Psalm 127-128
