TEXT: LUKE 4:4 And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.
Key Verse: Psalm 19:7 The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.
The word of God is the revelation of God's mind and nature to mankind. God's word is food for our souls by which we must live. Man shall feed upon every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God. Man shall live, be
nourished and fed by every word of God. The word of God is perfect; therefore, man should feed upon perfection and man should live on perfection according to the word of God. The word is sure. Man should live by the word that is sure, sincere, real, and certain. Again, it is right. The word of God that is right is what man should feed upon. The word is pure so man shall live by the purity of the word. As you feed on purity so you should live in purity of the word. The word is clean; man should feed on and live by the clean word. Again, the word is true and righteous altogether. Man needs this word that is true. This word that is righteous altogether should be the word that man lives by.
If a man lives by the word, what will he be like? According to the characteristics of the
word, he is going to be perfect because he lives by perfection. Again, he is going to be sure, sincere, and genuine. He is going to be right in his ways. He is going to be pure in his nature, in his heart, in his character and in his being. He is also going to be clean in every way because the word that makes clean is what he eats and feeds upon. He is going to be clean. And then he is going to be right and righteous all the time. Man shall be altogether right and righteous. God's word is complete and wholesome; it must not be added to or subtracted from. Our obedience to it must be similarly complete and wholesome. We must not half our obedience, nor be overzealous and begin to play some other things and say, “Oh we are over-righteous”. No! Keep to it exactly. That is the word of God. To awaken us to a total obedience and wholesome loyalty to God's word in our daily lives and Christian service is the purpose of this message because many have left the true vision.
Thought for the day:
The word of God is a must to keep God's commandment.
Song for the day:
Something more than gold
