Day 505: The Dynamite Power of the Word

Romans 1:16b

...because it [the Gospel] is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes...
Thoughts for Today:

The word "power" is translated from the Greek "dunamis" and is where we get our word for "dynamite". In other words, the Gospel of God is dynamite -- it's highly explosive! However, it has power for a very specific purpose: "It is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes."

Salvation is an all encompassing word and means -- "deliverance". It is representative of the past (I was saved), the present (I am saved), and the future (I will always be saved). It includes everything from sanctification to glorification.

In other words, in our passage today Paul explains, the Gospel of God has the power to turn people's lives around and give them a reason for being. The intrinsic power of the words is released by belief. Do you need some power to change? Read your Bible!
Questions to Ponder:

Are you having difficulty dealing with a problem at work? Read your Bible. My sister Susan is going on a diet to lose some unwanted pounds -- her solution -- "What does the Bible say about my body?" The Bible is called the Book of Life -- not because it is a collection of folk tales and good advice -- but is the only formula we need for living. Are you using its power? Read it and God will speak to you.
