Growing the Word
"But the Word of God grew and multiplied" Acts 12:24
This verse is one of my favorites. As I read that verse this morning, I realized how simple and whole and complete that verse is. It sums up for us this whole question of discipleship and church growth, and so many other issues we fret about. This early church, through their yielded lives, produced an atmosphere in which the Holy Spirit could grow the Word of God, or grow Jesus Christ in that community and the lives of every person they connected with. We like to make it about so many other things, but this life is never about anything but the Word being made flesh and dwelling among men.
Lord, let my life be yielded, good ground in which your mighty Word grows in abundance for Your glory.
