Continuing his theme of good stewardship, John Alley today turns to the question, “What so we do with the Scriptures?” The Bible, says John, makes hundreds of references to “the word of God” – but not one of those references is to a book! John explains about 2 different types of energy, potential energy and kinetic energy. The book sitting on the shelf has “potential energy”, but does not have real power until the believing Christian reads and ponders the Word. Ink on paper, says John, is not holy and has no power, but the same words alive in the heart are holy and very powerful. John then goes on to illustrate from the Scriptures the vital place of the word of God in the life of the believer.
