TOPIC: PROFITING BY THE WORD

SCRIPTURE: Thus saith the LORD, thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am the LORD thy God which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go. Isaiah 48:17.

The Word of God is profitable because it adds value to, and enhances the life of a Christian.

The Scripture makes it clear that the Word of God is calculated for the profit of His people. 

That is why Isaiah 48:17 says, Thus saith the LORD, thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am the LORD thy God which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go.

The Word of God is calculated for our benefit. The Bible is not just a religious creed for memorization or recitation. Rather, it is for our evidential profit. The Word of God is pregnant with profit. 

If you have been in contact with the Bible for Twenty Years, for example, it means, you are Twenty Years in contact with profit. Your encounter with the Word of God – whether you read it by yourself or you listened to it at home, on the television or radio, is an encounter that will add profit to your life. The Word of God is profitable because it adds value to, and enhances the life of a Christian.

Therefore, it is an abomination to carry the Bible, sit in church and be called a child of God without evidential profits. 

As a child of God, your classmates should be able to look at you and say, “You are different from us”. Your family members should be able to look at your life and say, “Something is different about you. What is your secret?” It is because the Word of God is making a difference in your life.

Remember this: The Word of God is profitable because it adds value to, and enhances the life of a Christian.
