Summer Camp Series: Priority of the Word

Just yesterday I was sitting with my students at our camp worship rally listening to Bobby McGraw preaching From Hebrews. He was laying a solid foundation for all the teenagers to understand the necessity of the Bible to real life.

The antidote to spiritual drift = NOT trying  harder BUT submission to the Word.

1)   The Word of God pierces our hearts. (Heb. 4:12)

…..a)    When you read this book, it reads you.
…..b)   It exposes the sin in your life.
…..c)    It discerns your motives.
…..d)   Through it God changes our outlook.
2)   The Word of God propels us.
…..a)    When you still need milk, you have become dull. (Heb. 5:11)
…..b)   It is written for every stage of life (1 john 2 is written to little children, men, and Fathers.)
3)   The Word of God produces maturity in us.
…..a)    One of the strongest warnings in the bible.
………..i)     Called to keep pressing on
………..ii)    Press on in what? The Word.
……b)   Get practical (Heb. 6:1)
…………i)     Read it! – this is not profound…but profoundly missing in many lives.
…………ii)    Receive it! –  Do you put yourself in positions to be exposed to the Word? Or do other priorities take precedence over preaching of the Word?
…………iii)  Respond to it! – You always will make a response, either negative or positive, there is no neutrality.

One thought on “Summer Camp Series: Priority of the Word

  1. Amen and Amen!!!! If there is one thing that is indeed greatly missing from our world today, it’s the study and application of His word. When we place His word in the center of all we do and say and believe, lives are transformed BECAUSE His power is truly released!
