What is a Word?

A word is an utterance released from the mouth.

-  Being born-again is the beginning of Christianity; it does not mean that God has finished with you.

-  What the Holy Spirit use to transform you is the Word of God.


What is a soul?

Soul is the mind, the will and the emotions.

 

How does the Word Transform?

1) The mind has to be renewed by the word of God (Romans12:2) because God has a good plan for us but we can never enjoy it until we are transformed by the Word through the holy spirit

Your will is the function of the will of God. Allow your will to be determined by the Word of God.

2) Renewal brings liberation (2 Corinthians 3:17-18), man by nature is disobedient. Man is very comfortable doing the wrong things and is natural.

 

There is power in God's Word to change your soul; it is that power that can transform you.

 

Therefore we should:

   1) Love the Word

   2) Study the Word.

   3) Learn the Word

   4) Honour the Word.

   5) Chew it, eat it, swallow it, and sleep on the word of God.

3) With the Word of God, you can defeat the devil. Most of us cannot read the Bible often because the devil does not want the Word of God to take root in our heart.

4) The word of God is light and life (Hebrews 4:12).

 

Issues:

- Light overpowers darkness (John 1:5).

- Life overcomes death. If you have the word, you have Jesus Christ, if you have Jesus, you have light and life.

- It separates truth from lies - discernment of spirit

- It exposes wrong motives, wrong thoughts, wrong Words, John 1:1,4,5.

 

What to do:

1) Study the Word of God at all times.

2) Be in the Spirit of God.

3) Listen to good Spirit filled sermons.

4) Relate with people who love the Word of God.

5) Go to a Spirit - filled Bible Church.

6) Listen to good Spirit filled tapes, CDs, VCDs e.t.c

7) Hook up to inspirational Bible TV Channels.

8) Check your thoughts.

9) Have a Bible version that you can understand.

 

How to understand the Word.

1) No one can understand the Word of God by his own ability (1 Corinthians 2:14).

2) Apply the Word of God in all your daily activities.

3) Bear witness to the power of the Word of God.

4) Share the Word of God with your brothers and sisters in Christ as well as the unbelievers.

5) Don't disregard the Bible. Not even a Word.

6) Always check what you hear outside in the Bible
