The Word is a lamp – Part 4

iuChrist is the Word of God in person. The Bible is the Word of God in writing. Both are the Word of God in the words of men. Both have a human nature and a divine nature.” Peter Kreeft. God’s Word exposes us to the Divine Nature Attitude of God. To know God is first to know His Word. The Word of God is a transformer! It is my light!! It is my salvation!!!

The Bible’s description of the Word of God is thus:

  • God’s Word is eternal
    • Your word, Lord, is eternal; it stands firm in the heavens.” Read Psalm 119:89 (NIV). Listen to this, God’s promises concerning you is eternal, long-lasting and forever settled.
  • God’s Word is the Word of truth
    • “Sanctify them [purify, consecrate, separate them for Yourself, make them holy] by the Truth; Your Word is Truth.” Read John 17:17 (AMPC).
  • God’s Word is the foundation of good judgement and knowledge
    • “Teach me good judgement and knowledge, for I believe Your commandments.” Read Psalm 119:66 (NKJV).
  • God’s Word is a light to the pathway of life
    • You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; In Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore.” Read Psalm 16:11 (AMP). 
  • God’s Word is the pure Word of God
    • “Your Word is very pure; therefore, Your servant loves it.” Read Psalm 119:140 (NKJV).
    • “Every Word of God is flawless; He is a shield to those who take refuge in Him.” Read Proverbs 30:5 (NIV).
