As I sat down to start writing this message all I could think of is the Word, The Word, The Word. So you shouldn’t be the least bit surprised by the content of this meal. Let it bless you.

Today’s Prayer

Father, in a recent national poll, 89% of us called ourselves Christians. Today, let us reflect on just how far we have strayed from following Your Word, I recently read the words of one of Your disciples. William Booth, founder of the Salvation Army once prophesied that a time would come when we would see: (1) Christianity without Christ, (2) salvation without His blood, and (3) religion without the Holy Spirit. We need to ask, are too many ministers trying to “sanitize” the Bible so that it won’t offend anyone, making it compatible with society’s demands? Are too many professors in our universities and seminaries trying to explain the Bible by their own reasoning, leaving out the sovereignty of God and the supernatural spiritual dimension? Oh Lord, forgive us all for not reading Your Word for ourselves, and for not allowing the Holy Spirit to lead us into an understanding of Your truth.* Save us, Lord, from our own arrogance. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.

Let’s eat.

The Word is able

To Make Wise

2 Timothy 3:15-17

You have been taught the Holy Scriptures from childhood, and they have given you the wisdom to receive the salvation that comes by trusting in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work.

To Save

James 1:21-25

So get rid of all the filth and evil in your lives, and humbly accept the word God has planted in your hearts, for it has the power to save your souls. But don’t just listen to God’s word. You must do what it says. Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves. For if you listen to the word and don’t obey, it is like glancing at your face in a mirror. You see yourself, walk away, and forget what you look like. But if you look carefully into the perfect law that sets you free, and if you do what it says and don’t forget what you heard, then God will bless you for doing it.

To Build Up

Acts 20:32

And now I entrust you to God and the message of his grace that is able to build you up and give you an inheritance with all those he has set apart for himself.

Quote of the Day

If we try to get up warm feelings and good dispositions in order to remove some fancied remainder of distance, we shall fail; not simply because these acting’s of ours cannot do what we are trying to do, but because there is no need of any such effort. The thing is done already. God has brought his righteousness nigh to the sinner. ~Horatius Bonar~
