Word of God

          The word of God, the words in the bible, is a powerful thing for christians around the world.  Those words are sometimes taken too literally. Sometimes they are taken out of context. Whether they are understood correctly or not, they are powerful! Even to those who oppose the word of God, it is powerful. Words can sway us to tears, passionate anger, or the inspiration of a lifetime!
          The word of God can forgive any soul of any crime and heal sickness. It can offer a relationship with  someone who loves you unconditionally. Words that can do that draw others to them. In 3 John 1:2 it says that God wants you to prosper and be well in all things. Many people don't have anyone in their lives that love them unconditionally. So these words are very powerful in their lives.
          The word of God has inspired philosophical debates about the origin of life. People try to line science up with what the bible says about those origins. Genesis says "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." That statement has been the topic of much debate. We ask two questions that always burn in the human mind. they are, "How?" and "Why?" All this pondering our existence is born from reading 10 words. "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth."
          Words have power. So don't just open your mouth and say the first thing that comes to mind! Words stir emotions. Words motivate. Words discourage. Words breed hate. Words inspire love. Words heal hearts of wounds inflicted by other's words. Words have the power to either curse or bless. That power is in your control. It's up to you to chose if you will hate, discourage, and wound people. Or if you will motivate, love, heal, and bless others.
