Well done good and faithful servant

What would it be like if you had an answer? A good one. The right one. When your friend you care for so much asks for advice, what would it be like to have words that are actual truth to give her? What would it be like to have an answer for someone wanting to be led to God? For someone asking the tough questions about our faith because they want to believe too? What is it like to feel the Spirit pull a verse you studied 2 weeks ago to the forefront of your mind in that moment? To speak with confidence the truth that has been revealed to you through bible study? To have the strength of Christ when someone rolls their eyes or mocks the truth? To be able to keep it together when the Spirit brought out of you words that brought someone to their spiritual knees in praise and surrender? To have the patience of Christ to watch a planted seed grow in someone?

You dont have to wonder what it is like. It is all right there for you in the bible. All the knowledge to turn to wisdom. You can be the one to spread the truth you have graciously been given. When Christ comes calling and asking “what did you do with the talents I gave you?” Did you bury them? Or did you use them to multiply the kingdom?

Parable of the Talents
Matthew 25:14-30

Martin Luther King, Jr

Listening to the Unashamed podcast and Jase just said something very profound to me. The reason Martin Luther King, Jr. was so effective against racism is because his main goal was spreading the love of Jesus.
He simply spoke the truth utilizing the fruits of the Spirit. Success came from a Godly focus. God’s word will not go out into the world and come back void.

Isaiah 55:11
So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

And God said

Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

How?

Let’s look at the first 3 words of verses 3, 6, 9, 11, 14, 20, 24, 26, 29 in Genesis. Those words are “And God said”.

His words have the power to bring this whole earth into existence.

John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

What else is referred to as God’s word?

The bible. The same Word that had the power to bring this world into existence resides in that book that you can easily possess. You want life changing power in your life? Are you in a spot that seems impossible to get out of? Habits impossible to break? You know where to go.
