REVEALED WORD TODAY
// Read: I Thessalonians 2:13-16 //
13 And we also thank God continually because, when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as a human word, but as it actually is, the word of God, which is indeed at work in you who believe. 14 For you, brothers and sisters, became imitators of God’s churches in Judea, which are in Christ Jesus: You suffered from your own people the same things those churches suffered from the Jews 15 who killed the Lord Jesus and the prophets and also drove us out. They displease God and are hostile to everyone 16 in their effort to keep us from speaking to the Gentiles so that they may be saved. In this way they always heap up their sins to the limit. The wrath of God has come upon them at last.[a]
God will not come down to the earth to preach the Word, He will use men. Many people have missed it in life because they took the Word of God sent to them as words of men. They neither believed it nor acted on it. Don’t we receive the Words of God as words of men because of who He sends? Verse 13 says the Thessalonians received the Word preached to them as Word of God, the truth and not words of men, so it profited them. Begin to do likewise and the Word of God will become effected in your life.
PRAYER: Pray that you will not take the Word of God as the word of men.
