1 Corinthians 4:20
"For the kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of
"For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power." KJV
Many Christians have allowed words, phrases, or Christian
"lingo" to have more power in their gatherings and their
personal lives than they should. Words and phrases have
as much divine power as wood and metal idols. We can
talk about God and the things of God all day, but the power
is not in the words. The power is in the Holy Spirit coming
through us because we have put on Christ and have done
away with our own prideful natures.
Heavenly Father, we confess that we have gotten caught
up in Christian talk and debate without the leading of Your
Holy Spirit. Help us, Lord, to be sensitive to Your Spirit so
that Your power will flow through us and reach lost souls
for your kingdom. In Jesus' name, Amen.
