Word And Power


“Jesus replied, “Your mistake is that you don’t know the Scriptures, and you don’t know the power of God.”
Matthew 22:29 (NLT)

Oops! How many times has that happened? We live under a certain assumption, do all kinds of things, only to find out that we have it all wrong! Assumptions do that. They can lead us down the wrong road. A road full of wild emotions and deep regret. Not just assumptions, misguided beliefs can also take us on the wrong journey. So it was with those who were trying to debate Jesus and trick Him into contradicting their traditions. Two things Jesus pointed out, both mistakes. One, they did not know the scriptures. They thought they did. They knew the words but not the intentions. They knew the law but not the grace. They knew the letter but not the spirit. God’s intention has always been to bring life, love and grace to mankind. If you do not know that, you do not know the scriptures. Secondly, they did not know the power of God. They knew the stories in scriptures but not the reality. They knew about God but not the power of God. They believed in death, but not God’s power to give eternal life. Don’t make the same mistake. Today choose to believe. Get to know the reality behind every page of the scriptures. Get to know God and all the power He has for your life.

Father, help me get to know You. Help the scriptures come alive in my life. Help me live in the power of Your resurrection. In Jesus’ name.

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
