2.1 What God's Word can do for You
Born again by the Word:
"Being born again, not of corruptible seed,
but of incorruptible, by the word of God,
which liveth and abideth for ever."
1 Peter 1:23
Believe and have Life by the Word:
"And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his
disciples, which are not written in this book:
But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the
Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life
through his name."
Grow by the Word:
"As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye
may grow thereby:"
1 Peter 2:2
Learn the Fear of God by the Word:
"And it shall be with him, and he shall read therein all the
days of his life: that he may learn to fear the LORD his God,
to keep all the words of this law and these statutes, to do them:"
Built up by the Word:
"And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his
grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an
inheritance among all them which are sanctified."
Cleansed by the Word:
"Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed
thereto according to thy word."
"Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you."
"...even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,"
Furnished unto good works by the Word:
"All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is
profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for
instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be
perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works."
2 Timothy 3:16-17
Kept from sin by the Word:
"Thy word have I hid in mine heart,
that I might not sin against thee."
Spiritual warfare by the Word:
"Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand
against the wiles of the devil."
"...the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:"
Discern our heart by the Word:
"For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than
any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of
soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a
discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart."
Made wise by the Word:
"The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the
testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple."
Prepared to share the Gospel by the Word:
And your feet shod with the preparation
of the gospel of peace;
Enables you to know the certainty of the words of truth
Have not I written to thee excellent things in counsels
and knowledge, That I might make thee
know the certainty of the words of truth;
that thou mightest answer the words of truth
to them that send unto thee?
That ye might know that ye have eternal life
These things have I written unto you that believe
on the name of the Son of God;
that ye may know that ye have eternal life,
and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
1 John 5:13
