The Letter to Pergamum: TRUTH

How do you experience the transforming power of the word of God today? For me personally, though I grew up in the church as the pastor’s kid, I didn’t experience the power of God’s word until I went to the army – my spiritual wilderness. There God began to speak to me. God’s word became alive, meaningful, relevant to me. I still remember that after my night-watch duty, every night I read a Psalm, prayed it, meditated on it, and recited it… The prayers of the Psalms became my prayers. God’s word began to shape me and became a part of my daily thoughts and actions. And I still pray the Psalms every morning. By the transforming power of God’s word I am corrected, encouraged, transformed, sanctified each and every day.
