《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “In this way the word of the Lord spread widely and grew in power.” (Act 19:20)
Meditation one: How can Christians make “the word of the Lord spread widely and grew in power”? Not by one’s eloquence, knowledge, education and experience, but by the power of the Holy Spirit. Once a person is filled with the Holy Spirit and guided by the Holy Spirit, the Word of the Lord will live out of that person’s life. Jesus said, “The kingdom of heaven has been subjected to violence, and violent people have been raiding it” (Mat 11:12). Let us work together to accomplish the great mission entrusted by the Lord, so that the word of the Lord will spread widely.
Meditation two: Is it possible that the current world pattern can turn better? Not only impossible, but will become more evil, more rampant, and darker. But thank the Lord, because the word of the Lord can illuminate the world and save the world. The responsibility of Christians is to bear witness to the word of their faith in life. Only those who follow the Lord’s word can prevail in this era. When people repent and confess their sins, as soon as sins are drafted out, the Lord comes in, and the power of God is brought out greatly.
Prayer: God heavenly Father, thank You. Because Your word is settled in heaven and shall never be shaken. For no word from God will ever fail. Please help me, I would like to yearn for your words, not merely listen to the words but do what it says. I pray in the name of the Lord Jesus, Amen!
