“Back to the Word”

“Back to the Word”
Bishop Daniel Robertson, Jr.
Mt. Gilead Full Gospel International Ministries

You’ve probably heard the phrase, “back to the basics.”  It refers to returning to the essential, the simplistic, the original form.  As we continue to grow and develop along our spiritual journey, it’s important to remember the primary source of our faith and beliefs — the Bible, the Word, the Holy Book. Whatever you call it, read it, understand it, and apply it to your life.  In this sermon, my Bishop urges us to get back to the Word.

Joshua 1:7-8 (NIV)
Be strong and very courageous.  Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the  right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go.  Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it.  Then you will be prosperous and successful.

We must be strong enough to stick to the Word to get things done.  The Word will give you strength.  The same promises God made in the Bible, apply to our lives.  The Bible is real!  Get excited about reading the Word because you can always learning something new about God’s Word.  That’s enough to make you praise God!!

Psalm 103:1-6 (NIV)
Praise the Lord, O my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name.  Praise the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits– who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.  The Lord works righteousness and justice for all the oppressed.

Something to think about: Don’t let what you see, change what you believe.  Let what you believe, change what you see.  All things are possible with God.  Studying His Word will strengthen your faith.
