CENTRAL THOUGHT: What Almighty God purposed and prophesied to be in His Son, Jesus Christ, and what Christ accomplished and brought to pass has proven to be firm, faithful, true, permanent, certain, sure, trustworthy, and verily without fail: SO BE IT!

In our lesson today we are surveying a very important and solemn thought. It is a word used quite extensively in the Scriptures, and it has a serious truth upon which it is so vital for us mortals to take hold. Take a look at the definition of the word “Amen.” It is sure, unfailing faithfulness and truth. It is an expression that one must utter from the deep of his heart. It is expressed, spoken, and declared concerning the WORD, Counsel, Promises, and all other standard truths of the Almighty God, the Creator of the Heavens and earth. God spoke it, declared it, promised it, and He wants us human beings to believe it, count it unfailing and true, and live our lives in accord with it and in subjection to it. When God speaks, He wants a response of faith, open-hearted reception, and sincere devotion and trust. We have a scene portrayed in Deuteronomy 27:14-26 where the Levites were to speak the word of curses upon all the men of Israel and for each curse all the people were to say “Amen”. This shows that God Almighty wants definite faith and acceptance in the heart of man concerning His holy laws and commandments.

So we follow this through the scriptures clear unto the last scripture of the Holy Bible. It means much and is so vital for us human beings to accept fully, sincerely, and soberly what the Almighty God declares and speaks to us. It shows this in our Lord’s Prayer that we have been studying about. When we say, “Amen,” we are accepting without doubt or failure what the Almighty speaks to us in His precious word and promises.

1. Heart response: What kind of response does God want us to have to His Word, and what do we show when we refuse to accept the Word of God?

2. Expression: How can we express our faith and acceptance of His Word?

3. Implications: How serious is this matter and why should we take it so to heart?

4. Consequences: What will the end be of all who refuse to believe and accept His Word?




When we say “Amen” in response to the wonderful, inspiring, enlightening, and encouraging promises, commandments, statutes, judgments, and are faithful to obey and follow without fail their holy standard of life, we put ourselves in line to receive all the blessings and benefits that God wants us to have and enjoy.

We need to say “Amen” to the holy Ten Commandments that God gave to Moses on Mt. Sinai. We need to express our earnest acceptance and willingness to obey and put in practice all that God commands.

When we read and accept the prophecies that God gave to His prophets concerning His great salvation that He was to make available through His Son, Jesus Christ, we need to say from our hearts a big and earnest “Amen”!

When we accept and fully believe and count as faithful and true all the precious promises in the Holy Bible, we need to say earnestly and sincerely from our hearts a joyous and definite “Amen!”

When we read in the New Testament what Christ accomplished and taught for us to follow and obey, we need to say earnestly and sincerely a whole-hearted “Amen!” We must not be slack or careless or light-hearted about it. Our “Amen” will be accepted of Him and He will bless us with His great salvation and will lead us to that eternal home in that blessed world to come!

Saying yes or amen to the will of God is not the easiest of things to do. I think of Mary when the angel appeared to her and told her, “You are highly favored, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women” (Luke 1:28). Mary’s reply was in verse 38, “Behold the handmaid of the lord.” Those six “amen” words cost her a reputation, much persecution, and almost death by stoning. But she was a woman of character and the Angel’s visit and his promising words were enough to convince her it was a great privilege to give her body to be used for God’s glory. In the weeks and months that followed, the bitter-sweet promise she made to the angel would test every part of her life.

I think of my dear former pastor, Bro. Richard Madden, who told one of his family members after he was diagnosed with cancer, “I’ve taught you how to live and now I’m going to teach you how to die.” His saying, “amen” to the will of God in his life has blessed many of us who have watched him as he stayed true to God till the end.

When we hear a truth that rings in our hearts as a message goes forth, let us not be silent, but say a hearty “Amen”.

When God calls for us to consecrate our lives to Him, let us be willing to say, “Amen! Yes Lord, I’ll do your will.”
