God’s Word is food to a believer which nourishes, grooms, edify and nurtures us. It fills our stomachs as it grows to capacity and enables us to belch or burp it out to the unbelievers. The Spirit of the Lord is upon the true believer because the Lord has anointed and qualified us to preach the gospel of good tidings unto the meek, the poor and the afflicted. He has sent us to bind up and heal the brokenhearted …( Isaiah 61:1).
The Word allows us the privilege to proclaim liberty to physical and spiritual captives, to open prison doors and the eyes of those who are bound. When we look in Romans 10:8-15 it tells us that,
“Salvation comes from trusting Christ which is the message we preach and is already within easy reach.”
In fact the scriptures say that the message is close at hand. it says that it is on our lips and in our hearts…For if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. As the Word tells us,
“anyone who believes in Him will not be disappointed…anyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved”.
How can they call on Him to save them unless they believe in Him? How can they believe in Him if they have never heard about Him? How can they hear about Him unless someone tells them about him? How will anyone go and tell them without being sent? This is what the scriptures mean when they say; how beautiful are the feet of those who bring glad tidings of good things.
Hebrews 4 :12 reminds us that:
“God’s Word is quick, powerful, and sharper than any two-edge sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul, spirit, joints and marrow.”
Deuteronomy 8:3 says God’s Word is our bread. 1 Peter 2:2 says Gods word is our milk. Luke 8:11 calls Gods word our seed. In Jeremiah 23:29 Gods word is considered as fire and a hammer. In Psalm 119:105 it is said that Gods word is,”A lamp to our feet and a light to our paths” map or G. P. S system; our rod and staff (Psalm 23 :4); our sword (Ephesians 6:17), And the list goes on. The question is, however, is what does God’s word mean to you?
God’s word my friends gives us the privilege of knowing and understanding our faults and errors. Gods words keep us from presumptuous or deliberate sins and makes sure those sins have no dominion over us. We must remain in righteousness, holy and pure without spot or blemish, till Jesus comes back. Glory to God.
Why not give your life to Christ and allow the word to mean something to you. Give yourself a chance to live in eternity and enjoy the privileges that serving and worshipping the true and living God brings to you.
