Church's Power: The Word of God

God has made His power available to us through various means, one of which is Scripture which is "God-breathed and is useful" to not just equip us but "thoroughly" equip us for every good work. (2 Tim. 3:16-17).

Why There's Power in the Word of God

God's Word is powerful because ...

of the Person who spoke it. (Ps. 29:4)
it is purposeful. (Isa. 55:10-11; 2 Tim. 3:16-17)
of what it provides. (Ps. 19:7-8 Ps. 119:28-165; Jn. 8:31-32; 17:17; Heb. 5:14)

With such a powerful resource, it's no wonder the psalmist viewed Scripture as "more precious than gold, than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the comb" (Ps. 19:10).
