I Thank God for Gospel Fruit
The Bible says the Word of God is "living and active" (Hebrews 4:12). It promises that the gospel is the "power of God for salvation" (Romans 1:16). In the waters of Baptism, in the bread and wine of Holy Communion, in the carefully prepared words of a pastor, and in the spontaneous witness of a child, God's Word is at work. Its work is evident in your homes in central Ohio and in homes and houses of worship and wherever Christians live and work and play around the world. For its beautiful fruit, we praise our God who gives his Word such awesome power.
