Word for Today: The Ministry of the Word
Ministry of the Word (MOW): True Spirituality
Improving Our Spiritual Understanding
True Spirituality Therapy (TST)
“But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word” ( Acts 6:4).
The idea for the word of God ministry came out of necessity. Please, read Acts 6:1-7). The ministry of the word of God is a powerful ministry indeed. This so because nothing on earth and in heaven compares to the word of God. We can see from the memory verse that the ministry of the word is inseparably linked to prayer ministry.
The word of God is the medium and raw material for the flow of the Holy Spirit of God and to experience the presence of God. The Psalmist noted that in the Presence of God is the fullness of joy ( Psalm 16:11).
The ministry of the Word should enable you to fall in love with the word of God. The ministry of the word of God is a ministry of light, joy, peace, patience, compassion, perfection, righteousness, purity, truth, fire and love. Nothing in this world compares with it.
We are in perilous times. The world is drifting into darkness. As Christians, we need to arise with the word of God in prayer and fasting to arrest the situation. If you are a Christian and you lack spiritual understanding, you make yourself very vulnerable .
Apostle Peter warned:
“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour” (1 Peter 5:8).
Apostle Paul calls the word of God “the sword of the Spirit” (Ephesians 6:17). A Christian who daily wears the full armour of God (Eph 6:13-18), can never be defeated by the enemies. Praying is ineffective without the word of God.
Technically speaking, prayer is ineffective without the word of God. You can pray anywhere you like. You can pray in your toilet, kitchen, bathroom, car, at work, not only in the ‘church’.
We should not sit down and do nothing when the world is drifting into darkness.
Let us learn to pray always , making use of the word of God.
Have a Spirit-filled week. Speak the word of God to one another.
To grow spiritually requires daily meditation with the word of God (Joshua 1:8) and seeking first the kingdom of God and its righteousness (Matthew 6:33).
Dear Father, please let your word come alive in our lives in Jesus name. Amen. Please, give us increasing understanding of the ministry of the word in Jesus Powerful Name. Amen.
Yours in the Vineyard of Christ.
