TODAY'S WORD 4U 2DAY
Do You Love God’s Word?‘Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.’ Matthew 24:35 NIV
The Bible is powerful. An anonymous author wrote: ‘It contains the mind of God, the state of man, the way of salvation, the fate of sinners, and the happiness of believers. It is a light to direct you, food to nourish you, and comfort to cheer you. It is the traveller’s road map, the pilot’s compass, the soldier’s weapon, and the player’s game plan. It’s a mine of incredible wealth, and a river of genuine joy. Its doctrines are holy, its precepts are binding, its histories are true, and its decisions are immutable. Christ is its grand subject, your good its design, and the glory of God its end. Read it to be wise, believe it to be safe, practise it to be spiritually healthy. Read it slowly, frequently and prayerfully. Let it fill your memory, rule your heart, and guide your steps. It is given to you in life, will be opened at the judgment, and be remembered forever. It involves the highest responsibility, will reward the greatest labour, and judge those who trifle with its sacred contents.’ The Bible is ‘the word of our God [which] endures forever’ (Isaiah 40:8 NIV). Whatever situation we’re facing, the first thing we should do is turn to God and His Word for guidance. Our circumstances might change. Things around us might change. But God’s Word never does. It’s right there, available to us at all times, ready to speak into our lives every single day. We need to recognise the power of His Word. Let’s be a generation that’s hungry for God’s wisdom and guidance. Let’s be a generation that lives, breathes and loves God’s Word.
