THE EFFECT OF THE SCRIPTURE IN THE LIVES OF THOSE WHO BELIEVE IT

“THE EFFECT OF THE SCRIPTURE IN THE LIVES OF THOSE WHO BELIEVE IT”
1 THESSALONIANS 2:13

INTRO: Over the years in my pastoral ministry, I have received the following statements from people regarding the Word of God:
1) Pastor, I try to read the Bible but never get anything from it.
2) Pastor, I get so much out of the Bible I never want to put it down.
WHY IS THERE SUCH A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN TWO PEOPLE’S RESPONSES WHO CLAIM TO KNOW THE LORD REGARDING WHAT THEY GET FROM THE SCRIPTURE?
● Perhaps one is NOT REALLY SAVED
● Perhaps one is NOT REALLY INTERESTED IN HEARING FROM GOD
● Perhaps one DOES NOT REALLY BELIEVE THE WORD OF GOD
● Perhaps one is SAVED AND WANTS TO HEAR FROM GOD
BUT WHAT ABOUT YOU? WHAT DO YOU GET FROM THE BIBLE DAILY? Today we are going to study from 1 Thessalonians HOW EFFECTIVE THE WORD OF GOD IS in the lives of those who TRULY BELIEVE IT.
