The Word Of God Working In A Believer

The Word Of God Working In A Believer

The word of God renews the believer’s mind by reeducating it
Romans 12:2
2 Corinthians 4:16-18
Ephesians 4:23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;

The word of God transforms the believer’s behavior by the renewed mind
Romans 12:1-2
Romans 6:11-13
Colossians 1:9-11

The word of God energizes the believer by sound doctrine
Sound doctrine is energy for the believer.
1 Thessalonians 2:13 “worketh” – The word of God energizes a believer.

The word of God strengthens the inner man through the Spirit
The doctrine that is in a person’s soul fortifies and sustains the inner man by the Spirit of God.
Colossians 1:11
Ephesians 3:16
The Holy spirit strengthens you in the inner man.
How does the Holy Spirit strengthen our inner man?
By the Word of God
The Holy Spirit takes the word of God (the doctrine in your soul) and He energizes it.
Colossians 3:16”Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom;”

The Coming Of The Lord

                               1 Thessalonians 4:15 – 17 The Coming Of The Lord
The Lord is coming for all believers that are saved and in the Body of Christ.
These verses will give comfort to all believers that will read them.

4:16 Resurrection
4:17 Rapture (“caught up together”)
4:17 Reunion
4:18 Renewing our minds
How? 4:18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Ephesians 4:23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;

2 Corinthians 4:16 For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.

All believers should want to renew their minds daily in the word of God. We should read, learn how to study, learn how to rightly divide the word of truth, and walk by faith in the position that we have in Christ.

As believers we should be:

Waiting – “And to wait for his Son from heaven,” – 1 Thessalonians 1:10
Looking for that blessed hope – Titus 2:13
Listening for the “shout” from the Lord Jesus Christ – 1 Thessalonians 4:16
Pressing toward the mark – Philippians 3:14
