Praise God what a gift! God the Father, so loved us that He gave His only begotten Son, the Living Word of God!
John 1:1, 14 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
In the amazing, matchless wisdom of our Creator, He gave unto His Son something which He lovingly passed on to all His earthly children.
John 17:8 For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.
Hallelujah to God! The Living Word, became flesh and brought with Him, for us, this priceless gift, THE WORDS of GOD!
A love letter, delivered personally from our “Beloved” to His Bride!
These words, as all gifts from our blessed Saviour, are not just any words, they are, first of all, PURE WORDS!
Psalms 12:6 The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.
Oh, the glorious purity of the words of our Father!
- They are PRECIOUS WORDS!
2Peter 1:4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
1Peter 2:6 Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded.
No, nothing on earth more precious than the words of our dear Saviour!
- They are PEACEFUL WORDS!
John 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
There is only one source for that peace that passeth all understanding!
- They are POWERFUL WORDS!
Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
Praise the Lord! Powerful enough to transform a hopeless, helpless, lost sinner, into a born-again child of the Living God!
