By William Akehurst, BA
GATORADE Commercial Black & white commercial, but sweat drops in color of the drink, with the message...Is it in you?
Thought: WE need the WORD of GOD...IN us.
IN GOD WILL I PRAISE HIS WORD
In God will I praise His Word: in the LORD will I praise His Word.
In God have I put my trust:
I will not be afraid what man can do unto me.
Thy vows are upon me, O God: I will render praises unto thee.
IN-TELEGENT – ‘make thee wise unto salvation’
2 Timothy 3:15-4:6
15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
IN-SPIRED for our IN-STRUCTION
16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
2 Timothy 4
1 I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;
2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine.
3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
5 But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.
Isaiah 55:11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
Ephesians 6:19 And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,
IS IT IN YOU?
STUDY THE WORD...GET IT IN YOU.
SHARE IT WITH OTHERS
It all began...
IN THE BEGINNING
STUDY THE WORD DID YOU SAY? STUDY CHRIST...GET HIM IN YOU!
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God.
For this purpose...
John 20:31 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.
Psalm 119 mentions “the Word” 44 times
