Hope, Encouragement, Power & Authority

24 01 2010

If I could just use 4 words to describe the holy word of God, it would be Hope, Encouragement, Power and Authority. That’s the message…that is what I run to…that is what I stand on.

“I appeal to you, dear brothers and sisters, by the authority of our Lord Jesus Christ, to live in harmony with each other. Let there be no divisions in the church. Rather, be of one mind, united in thought and purpose.”  ~ 1 Corinthians 1:10

“But to those called by God to salvation, both Jews and Gentiles, Christ is the power of God and the wisdom of God. This foolish plan of God is wiser than the wisest of human plans, and God’s weakness is stronger than the greatest of human strength.” ~ 1 Corinthians 1:24-25

The last thing God told Moses before he left the top of Mt. Sinai were these instructions on the Sabbath.

“You have six days each week for your ordinary work, but the seventh day must be a Sabbath day of complete rest, a holy day dedicated to the Lord. Anyone who works on the Sabbath must be put to death.” ~Exodus 31:15

The Sabbath is an important par of our covenant with God.  For a day dedicated to this will bring Hope, Encouragement, Power & Authority.  As we live that out, wisdom comes.  God will take the ordinary and make it extraordinary.  He takes the impossible and makes the possible.  He takes the faithful hearts and blesses the generations with Hope, Encouragement, Power & Authority.

What 4 words would you use to describe the holy word of God? Are you living in those words today?

Breathe In & Smile Out,

Chris
