DID YOU GET IT?
April 25, 2020
“Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.”
The engrafted Word of God is able to save your soul”. “Engrafted, engrafted”. The Word that sticks in your soul, the Word that you “receive”, the Word that you get a hold of and gets a hold of you! DID YOU GET IT? You see friend, that’s the only Word that you can use. The enemy doesn’t mind all the Word that flies over your head. That’s why he’ll try to distract you while I’m preaching or while you are studying. He’ll have you doin’ somethin’ that don’t have anything to do with it. You’ll be thinkin’ about what you’re gonna do at work Monday, or “where are we gonna eat when the service is over”? Because the enemy knows you can’t fight with Word that goes over your head. You can only use the engrafted Word of God. Did you get it?
“Engrafted” – think of it like a skin graft -where a doctor takes skin from one place, and he puts it in another, and he puts it in there, and holds it there until a natural grafting takes place so that what was not there before has become one in a place that it did not previously exist. That is the miracle of God’s Word. When I preach the Word or you study the Word or you read the Word, it will take a love you didn’t have, a peace you didn’t have, a power you didn’t have, a confidence you didn’t have, and it will graft into your personality. Oh, y’all don’t hear what I’m saying. Hearing the Word of God is absolutely life changing. But hearing is truly receiving (with meekness) the engrafted Word. DID YOU GET IT?
