I’m often slow to admit it, but there are plenty of things that are beyond me. I guess it’s just part of being human.
Yes, we all have our limits.
But God has no limits! And neither does His Word!
Picture for a moment the apostle Paul. He’s been faithfully proclaiming the Gospel – and making many enemies along the way. They want to put a stop to his ministry, so they throw him in prison. But how futile to think they could stop the work of God!
As Paul puts it: “I am suffering even to the point of being chained like a criminal. But God’s word is not chained” (2 Timothy 2:9 NIV, emphasis added).
God’s Word can’t be chained… because its power is limitless!
That’s why I’m so excited about this year’s Summer Surge campaign, and I hope you are too. Because no matter the restrictions – poverty, warfare, persecution, illiteracy, tyranny – God’s mighty Word will do its work… shining light into the deepest darkness and offering salvation to the lost.
So can I urge you to pray fervently for this year’s Summer Surge? Let’s ask God to release the power of His unchained Word and speed the day when the whole world has a Bible in their hands!
