Daily Bread 12/15/2023


    Daily Bread – December 15, 2023 (The Sixth Day – Genesis 1:24-31) Mark 16:20 – And they went out everywhere, preaching, the Lord working with them and establishing the Word through the miracles that followed. Amen! Miracles Confirming the Word of God The preaching of the Word of God was established, or confirmed, to be indeed the Word of God by miracles. Miracles are the proof Jesus gave that He spoke the words of God, and they are still the proof today (John 10:38, 14:10). The Gospel is the declaration of deliverance – deliverance from sin, sickness, and disease. Therefore, when the Gospel is preached, people will be saved, healed, and set free. The Word of God is powerful and creative – it is the announcement of God’s will for men. It must be preached with power and the demonstration of the Spirit for it to be what it is – the power of God unto salvation (Romans 1:16, 15:19; 1 Corinthians 1:18,24, 2:5). The Lord Jesus is passionate about bringing all men to salvation. He is the One Who upholds all things by the word of His power, and He is the One present wherever the Gospel is preached. He is present to work the miracles that the Gospel declares. While is is true that many will not believe unless there are miracles, still it must be understood that the Gospel itself is a declaration that miracles will take place (John 2:11,23, 4:48, 7:31; 1 Corinthians 2:4; Acts 8:6).
