Daily Bread – October 24, 2022 (The Second Day – Genesis 1:6-8) 1 Peter 4:11 – If anyone speaks, then as an oracle of God; if anyone ministers, then as from out of the strength which God directs; that in all things, God may be glorified through Christ Jesus, to Whom be the glory and might unto the ages of the ages, amen. Everything we do should bring glory to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, Who we shall worship and adore throughout all eternity. The noted Greek scholar A.T. Robertson describes the meaning of ‘oracle’ (logia) as “the utterances of God through Christian teachers.” Paul said when he ministered, he would do so by the activity of the Spirit through revelation, or knowledge, or prophecy, or by doctrine (1 Corinthians 14:6). Paul also said when he preached, it would not be with the words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and power (1 Corinthians 2:4). When God endued the saints with the power of the Holy Spirit, the first thing that happened was the Holy Spirit took over what they were saying (Acts 2:4). When Peter spoke to the great crowd of people that had gathered on the day of Pentecost, he did so by the power of the Holy Spirit. For the first time, the true meaning of the passage of Scripture in Joel 2:28-32 was set in its proper context. Through this mighty display of the power of the Holy Spirit speaking through men, God was glorified through Jesus Christ, and 3000 souls were added to the Kingdom (Acts 2:41).
