Today's Daily Devotional

“Praise and glory and wisdom and thanks and honor and power and strength be to our God for ever and ever. Amen!” Revelation 7:12

04/21/09 I have studied this word for power before. It is one of the coolest word studies a Bible student can do. The Greek word dunamis may even look familiar to you. A really popular English word is derived from this Greek term. Can you see the English word? Take a guess at what it might be. Think power. Maybe the definition will help: inherent power, power residing in a thing by virtue of its nature, or which a person or thing exerts and puts forth. Here’s another exciting bit of information. The inherent power of God resides in every Christian. When we accept Christ, we are indwelled by the Holy Spirit. When God comes to live inside of us, His power lives within us! Praise the Lord! So, do you know the word? The English word for “dunamis” is dynamite! Is that cool or what?
