Sabbath 8/24/19 Seventh Day Baptist Edgewater Pastor Keith sermon “The Power of God’s Word” Isaiah 55:8-11
Atheists and sceptics will try to stump us with a question about God’s power. Can God create a rock that’s so big that He cannot lift? God is ALL powerful and can do all things!! Don’t respond to sceptics with sarcasm. Tell them… No God cannot create a rock He can’t lift because He can lift anything. God is not limited by His creation. The truth is, we cannot understand just how powerful God is.
In Isaiah 55, God says His ways and thoughts are higher than our ways and thoughts. Apostle Paul said all scripture is for us to be thoroughly equipped for life. All the answers are right there in the Bible. All we need to do is READ IT!! We can read the same scripture ten times and can get a different meaning each time. Read the Word so we can lead a life that is pleasing to God the Father and Jesus the Christ. The Word is very near to us and it should be in our hearts to obey it. The Word has power in it. It will not come back void but will achieve the purpose God has for it. The Bible is a living thing than can transform lives. You just have to read the Word and study the Word of God to know it.
The Word can make lives new and changed to be like Jesus. You must read and believe the Word of God. The Bible is a life transforming book. It doesn’t need a preacher to explain it. God said His Word goes out of His mouth and it will achieve His purpose. In John chapter 1 it says “In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. The Word was made flesh and dwelt among us.” Jesus was sent from God to die for our sins because God loves us so much. Be grateful for the Word of God.
