The Power Of The Word Of God by Jesse Hendley

Acts 2:37

What excuse do you have for being a weak Christian?
The Lord is the Source of all power, and every
Christian may have His power, great power, exceeding
great power. It is for us! And God wants us to know
it. We ought to cry to God for more power; we need it
or we faint in the spiritual walk. Each day brings us
into conflict, in some, way, with the world, the flesh
and the devil. How are we to withstand? How are we to
be over comers? How can we take the "offensives" in
life, and not merely resist but aggressively go out
and make gains for Christ, winning souls, and going
forward in the fight?

Christian, if you really know the Lord in real
fellowship, you long for more power! There is power in
BIBLE STUDY and there is no spiritual power without
it! People pray for more power, and then neglect the
Bible. People pray for fruit, and neglect the Seed,
which is in the Word. People pray for the power to
melt hearts of stone and break stubborn wills, and
they neglect the Word, which is the Fire, and a Hammer
that breaketh the rock to pieces! They pray for power

strengthen their souls in the Word. You only feed upon
ashes, if you expect spiritual strength from this
world's diet of magazines and newspapers. And let me
say here that no Christian can have power reading the
Word AND some of these modern, filthy novels full of
dirt and shame. It just can't be done. People pray for
more light, and sit in darkness with the light in
reach, they reach for a magazine instead of the
Scriptures. The entrance of MY WORD, the Lord says,
giveth light! The Word will give you real light on
war, on liquor, on the race problem, on sin, on
salvation. Listen, the Word of God shall never pass
away. Forever is His Word settled in Heaven. If we
once get that fact settled in our mind ...
