Word of God
“Jesus answered, It is written: Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.” Matthew 4:4 (NIV)
Food is required to keep us healthy and alive to see tomorrow, but the Bible is required to keep us healthy and alive to see eternal life in Heaven. The Bible is the word of life, the word of truth, the word of God and is far more important for an abundant life – on earth and in heaven – than every crumb of food that may pass through our lips. So let us live our days in hunger for the very words of our God.
The Bible is not meant to be a reference book for sporadic referral in times of trials or problems. We should go to it in the circumstances that try us but God’s Word is our daily spiritual sustenance required for life, even more than bread.
Let’s pray today for the Spirit of God to stir our yearning to digest the words of eternal life.
