The word of the Lord says that Jesus is the Word of God. John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
Our forerunners paid for the bible with their lives and today we can live in the blessing of the word of the Lord because of that sacrifice. To despise this living Word is an indictment against our responsibility and stewardship of this good news message for our times.
Pastor Robert Morris of Gateway Church, says from his series, From Dream to Destiny. “God tests our faith with the prophetic word, then God tests our character with the written word.” If we do not take the written word of God to heart and allow that word to cleanse and direct us forward, we will not fulfill our destiny that God has purposed for us.
Thomas Edison said, “Vision without execution is just hallucination.” The Lord said it this way in James 2:20b That faith without works is dead. We must put our faith in the Word who is Jesus whom God gave us, because He is the only way we will get direction from God. Heb. 1:1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, 2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds.
That was all God said, “Hear Him.” What elaboration is needed here? Hear Him, listen to Him, believe what He says, and have faith in Him. Jesus is the Word of God and God’s living Word is in us to fulfill the holy will of the Father. 1 John 5:11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
I love the Word of God and the Word loves me. 1 Cor. 3:23 And ye are Christ’s; and Christ is God’s. May God’s face shine on us all.
