The WORD and your spirit


“And that from a child thou hast known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through Faith which is in Christ Jesus.

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instructions in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works  (2 Timothy 3:15- 17)”.

Every Christian needs to learn and understand the word of God; without studying the word, you’ll never know it. 1 Peter 2:2 says “AS NEW BORN BABIES, DESIRE THE SINCERE MILK OF THE WORD, THAT YE MAY GROW THEREBY “. You have to hear the word; you have to be thought, and then search the scriptures for yourself.

There are people who know so much about everything else, but know nothing about the word of God; and that’s terrible.  The most important thing about you is your Spirit; that’s the real you. When everything in this world is over, your Spirit will live on, which means your Spirit is eternal. It’s therefore important that the Spirit is trained and nurtured by the word. Your Spirit was recreated by the word, and can ONLY be sustained by the word.

The human spirit must be educated to know and relate with spiritual verities. It’s one of the reasons the teaching of the word of God in the church is so important; it’s for the development of your Spirit. If you follow the teachings of the word of God, and also have time of personal meditation, your mind will surely be enlightened, your Spirit will be lifted, and you’ll be strengthened in the things of God. More so, it’ll make your Spirit an accurate guide, because he’s able to receive light from God; ideas and thoughts that’ll make you creative and excellent in all you do.
Understand that the highest potential of the human nature isn’t in the mind but in the Spirit. So, keep educating your Spirit with the word. Discipline yourself to have, and follow, a very healthy and robust word- study programme; with definite times of meditation.

Dear Father, thank you for the opportunity and joy of being inspired, taught, educated, trained, and nurtured in and by the word. I’m built up, strengthened, and energised by your word today, as always, for the ever-winning, victories, and triumphant life, In JESUS NAME-

Rev Henry
