WHAT DOES THE BIBLE TEACH ABOUT THE WORD OF GOD?
The Bible has a lot to say about the Word. John 1:14 is one of the most important passages found in the Bible.
THE BIBLE TEACHES THAT JESUS IS THE LIVING WORD, THAT IN HIM, ALONE, THERE IS LIFE, AND THAT OUR WORDS WILL ALLOW US TO BE JUSTIFIED BEFORE GOD OR CAUSE US TO BE CONDEMNED.
In ‘Our Daily Bread’ devotional for September 25, they point out that Jesus is “eternal life.” See Words That Matter or 1 John 1:1
John the disciple called Jesus “the Word of life” (1 John 1:1). He wanted everyone to know what that meant. “We proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and has appeared to us,” he wrote of Jesus (v. 2). “We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us” (v. 3).
Word of Life Ministries has been a blessing to so many people over the years. This ministry, in their own words…
is a nondenominational Christian organization creating faith-defining experiences that give students and families the chance to encounter God and grow in their spiritual walks.
Here is a tiny part of what God has said about Jesus Christ, who is the living Word:
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
…“All flesh is like grass and all its glory like the flower of grass. The grass withers, and the flower falls, but the word of the Lord remains forever.” And this word is the good news that was preached to you. 1 Peter 1:24,25
All things came into being through Him, and without Him not even one thing came into being that has come into being. In Him was life, and that life was the light of men. John 1:3-4
God has also shown that the written word is important:
But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith that we proclaim); Romans 10:8
Every Scripture is God-breathed and profitable for instruction, for conviction, for correction, and for training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be complete, having been fully equipped toward every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16-17
Jesus, the Living Word, gives life to all those who trust Him. We find Him revealed in the written word. Our spoken words are important:
For by your words you shall be justified, and by your words you shall be condemned. Matthew 12:13
But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith that we proclaim); because, 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. Romans 10:8-9
