Words of Life
God’s Word is powerful. It is Truth. It is Jesus.
Jesus is the Word. He is Truth and He is Life. He gives us life by His sacrifice for us, through our kneeling before Him seeking forgiveness and redemption.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. John 1:1-4
He is our life-giving bread and water. From Him, we will never thirst. He is Life.
But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘MAN SHALL NOT LIVE ON BREAD ALONE, BUT ON EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD.’” Matthew 4:4 (CAPS from Deuteronomy 8:3)
Jesus came to live among men. They saw the power of the Word. When Jesus spoke, they felt the passion of the Word. When Jesus speaks the waters calm, the lepers are healed, the dead arise. He is the Living Word.
The Word is not just biblical history but is living and active today.
For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. Hebrews 4:12
Nancy Guthrie writes, “The Word of God offers us power and perspective. Its truth brings comfort, not confusion. It is substantial, not merely sentimental. It is true, not trite.”
The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.
The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.
More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.
