The Transforming Power of the Word of God

9 Jul 2018

At this week's evening Bible Talk, we thought about the power of God's word, and its effect on us. Romans 12:2 gives a useful starting point: 

"...be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God" (Romans 12:2).

Our speaker identified seven principles that we should aim for in our lives, in subjection to the Living Word of the Living God:

1. Acceptance (of teachings)

2. Respect (read as if in God’s presence, as if we hear His voice speaking)

3. Study (willingness to do so)

4. Sacrifice (our own will for the Almighty’s)

5. Obedience (to teachings)

6. Humility (childlike mind)

7. Prayerfulness
