The Bible 

“The Bible is not a motivational book. It is the Word of The Living God.” #BlessingShares 

 

So, this quote came to me sometime last week and I pretty much needed a deeper insight before putting it out there.

I asked a friend- Ike Amadi, to explain it as led by the Holy Spirit…

And he did…here goes the Eureka moment of this intricate quote

 What is a motivational book?

A motivational book is a book that seeks to inspire action. The thing is that it can inspire but cannot empower. It can make you want to do, but can not make you do it. 

The Word of God however is a container of virtue. IT empowers a man to action. It creates. It created the world. IT is a person. He – Jesus – The Word. So when we read the Word, we are becoming like God and have ability to think like God.

So it is not a motivational book. It is the Word of God.

 

Thank you! Thank you! This gives a lot of revelation…

All I can do is clap and add:

“For it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure.”- Philippians 2:13 (ESV)

Enjoy the rest of your weekend ya’ll! Remain blessed…
