“For you know how, like a father with his children, we exhorted each one of you and encouraged you and charged you to walk in a manner worthy of God, who calls you into his own kingdom and glory. And we also thank God constantly for this, that when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men but as what it really is, the word of God, which is at work in you believers” – What separates believers from others is the Word. Everyone else rejects the Word as a work and vehicle of man used to control others…but believers, true believers, know and understand that the Bible is THE Word — God’s Word to mankind that has the innate power to create new life in those who choose to believe by faith!
