Horsepower and Wordpower

horsepowerWe often measure an automobile’s strength in horsepower. One horsepower equals the amount of work a horse can do in one second (James Watt) or 746 watts or 33,000 foot-pounds per minute. A horse is capable of a maximum of 15 horsepower and an athletic man might reach a maximum of 5 horsepower. However you measure it, a car with 0 horsepower is virtually ineffective.

Similarly, a believer’s strength can be measured in WORDpower. The Holy Spirit works in our lives and through us in this world through the Word of God. Just as God used His own words to form this universe, the Holy Spirit uses God’s Word today. It is the Word that is the power of God unto salvation. Raise your strength by immersing yourself in the Word of God.

Similar to the car, a believer without the Word is virtually ineffective.

1 Corinthians 1:18 (NASB)
“For the word of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it ts the power of God.”
