Substance from the Word

The Bible remains the most precious book in all the world. It’s still the best seller after all these years. It is precious because 2 Timothy 3:16 says “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God.”

In light of this, we must take heed what we hear and how we hear (Mark 4:24; Luke 8:18). What we listen to must be consistent with what the Word of God speaks. “…It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God” (Matthew 4:4).

These are words from the Bible. We do not live by what our spouses may say or what society may expect of us. We are to live by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.

Many people desire to have a life that is based upon faith. Yet, that faith must rest upon something. And that something must be the Word of God, which tells us “Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (Romans 10:17).
