Words of Life
Jesus reminds the Devil in Matthew 4:4 “that man cannot live on bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.”
This statement could not be truer for you and I today than maybe it ever has in the History of creation. When bread and sustenance are so easily obtainable and reading is being substituted with movies and television, the simple fact that life and health can be found in one place and only one place…The Word of God. News articles may inform us. Novels may inspire us. Poetry may enrapture us. But only the living, active Word of God can transform us.” It is alive! We need to first get the word into our head. Then we need to get it into our hearts. Finally, we need to make sure it gets lived in our lives.
A Sunday morning sermon where more of the preacher’s words are showcased than God’s word is established, is a recipe for a generation of mankind that is seeking a substitute to God’s Word. I want to put before you a challenge. If you have made it this far into the article would you purpose to bring your Bible to church this Sunday, not the one on your phone, but the physical paper version? Let’s make it difficult to shake hands this Sunday because we have a Coffee in one hand and the bread of life in the other.
If you would like to read ahead and prepare your hearts for this Sunday’s sermon, you can read Deuteronomy 8.
