God told Israel in Deuteronomy 8:3, “man lives by every word that proceeds from the mouth of the LORD.”
We have been given a great gift in the Word of God. It is the revelation of God Himself, not merely the words or the thoughts, but the fullness of Scripture is the character, the heart, the mind and the ways of God. This week we discuss God’s Word, why it was written, who wrote it, how we should approach and handle it and what benefits the Word can make in our lives.
My earnest prayer is that we will be a people that love God’s Word. Scripture is a lamp for our feet and a light for our path; it is the gift that God has given to be hidden in our hearts to keep us from sin; and it is the perfect compass that will always lead us to the perfect purpose for which God created us.
I encourage each of us today to let the Word of God take hold of our hearts; it will refine us, convict us, encourage us and mold us into the very image of Christ.
