THE WRITTEN WORD OF GOD

January 18th, 2019

The written word of God is God’s direct revelation of Himself to mankind. The Bible, OT and NT is the Word of God.

The Bible is completely truthful in what it teaches. It is without error. I believe the greatest thing a person can do is read, meditate, and study God’s Holy Word. It is hard to do, but it is soothing to the the searching and open heart. It brings blessings, humility andwisdom concerning eternal matters.

—People who do not love God and the Lord Jesus do not read the Bible.
(They fear the Name of Jesus.)
__ People who love sin and the things of this world are afraid of the Bible.
(The Bible is an intrusion in their interests.)
__Lazy people will not read the Bible. They just don’t have time, with everything
they have to do.
__It is a sin not to read and meditate on God’s Holy Word. To ignore is is a very
dangerous thing.

Let’s read a few verses and have a some meditational thoughts.

John 17:17 “Sanctify them by your truth. Your word is truth."

2 Tim. 2:15 “Be diligent to present yourself to God, a worker who does not
need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”

Joshua 1:7-8 “This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but
you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe
to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make
your way prosperous, and then you will have great success."

Psalms 119:105 “Your word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.”

Psalms 119:11 “Your word have I hid in my heart that I might not sin against
you.”

Col. 3:15 “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and
admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs,
singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
