Some things don’t change.
Today, just like the days written about in the Bible, believing in Jesus is often a stumbling block for people. People label the message of Jesus as too simple, too unbelievable, or too unrealistic. It isn’t what people want to believe. They want to believe something that they can claim to have discovered, created, or invented.
But the story of Jesus is God’s idea. That’s why it seems so strange to human beings. Yet, through a missionary's letter to a church, we find not only encouragement in the gospel (Jesus' life, death, and resurrection) but also a well-needed spiritual check-up.
WORDS. They are POWERFUL! One word spoken in a timely or untimely way can build us up or tear us down. Do you remember someone who helped you? Perhaps it was the words they said that helped the most. Remember a time you felt discouraged? Could it have also been because of what someone said?
The Bible is GOD'S WORD. And it contains POWERFUL WORDS. These words can change us and the world around us. Each Sunday this summer as we look at some of the most POWERFUL WORDS found in GOD'S WORD.
