Why proclaiming the Word?

What is God’s Word?

God’s Word is life!

It is a living Word that regenerates the hearer. The new birth comes from the Word. Living faith comes by hearing the living Word! (Deut. 8:3; John 6: 63; Rom. 10: 17; Phil. 2:16; James 1:18-21; 1 Peter 1:23)

God’s Word is power!

It is a burning Word, consuming the dross in the hearer. It is both convicting and breaking down the resistance of the hearer. (Jer. 20:9; 23:29; John 15:3.7; Rom. 1:16; 10:17; Eph. 6:17)

God’s Word is light!

It is an illuminating Word guiding the believer. Without the Word a believer does not know how to live. Apart from the Word we could only grope about in the darkness. (Psalm 119:105; 2 Cor. 3:5-6; 2 Peter 1:20-21; 1 Tim. 4:13-16)

God’s Word is food!

We are to eat God’s Word, digest it and assimilate it. The Word has to become a part of our lives. It has to be applied. No food means no growth! (Jer. 15:16; Ezech. 2:8-3:3)

What does God’s Word do for us?

God’s Word searches us

This dynamic Word of God is active in accomplishing God’s purpose. It is a living power that searches us as with an all-seeing eye, penetrating our innermost being. (Heb. 4:12; Psalm 147:18; Isa. 40:8; 55:11; Gal. 3:8; Eph. 5:26; James 1:18)

God’s Word judges us

The main purpose of the Word of God is to present the only Saviour. His purpose in the Saviour’s coming was not to judge a sinner, but to bring salvation. Judgment is the other part of salvation. The same way as the purpose of the sun is to shine, but when the sun shines, shadows are to be expected. (John 12:48)

God’s Word testifies to us about the Lord Jesus

Though God’s Word speaks about many things but the main purpose is to show us the Lord Jesus. He must remain the main Person of the Bible. (John 3:11-13, 34; 5:39; 6:63; Luke 24:44; Acts 28:23)

God’s Word cleanses us and gives growth

Through God’s Word we are cleansed and we receive power to live for God. Pruning produces fruitfulness. Good fruit can be produced only by the Word of God. (Jer. 15:16; Psalm 107:20; 119:9; John 15:3; Eph. 5:26; 2 Thess. 2:13; 1 Peter 1:23, 25; 2:2; 2 Peter 3:18)

James N. Spurgeon wrote:

'A job is at your choice; a ministry is at Christ's call. In a job you expect to receive; in a ministry you expect to give. In a job you give something to get something; in a ministry you return something that has already been given to you. A job depends on your abilities; a ministry depends on your availability to God. A job done well brings you praise; a ministry done well brings honour to Christ.'

This ministry is to bring honour to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ!
