“We also thank God continually because, when you received the Word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men, but as it actually is, the Word of God, which is at work in you who believe.”
1 Thessalonians 2:13
The Word works in those who believe! The Word does not work in those who do not believe.
“No matter how many promises, they are ‘Yes” in Messiah. And so through Him the ‘Amen’ is spoken by us to the glory of God” (2 Corinthians 1:20).
We activate God’s promises through our agreement with them – through our “Amen.”
“We also have had the gospel preached to us just as they did, but the message they heard was of no value to them, because those who heard did not combine it with faith” (Hebrews 4:2).
Hearing without faith is of no value. The Word of God is filled with promises, often unfulfilled promises. We receive those promises through faith.
Let us listen expectantly for the promises, and see those promises fulfilled in our lives through our faith-filled “Amen”!
