Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.” Matthew 7:24 & 25
Today, Christian books and other teaching tools are an essential element of Christian discipleship. However, believers must discern truth by measuring everthing according to the only infallible words of wisdom – the Words of the Living Word. The written Word and the Living Word testify of eternal wisdom, truth, and life.
In today’s diverse and distracting theological environment, we need to keep our eyes on Jesus and prioritize His Word, so that when the rains come…the streams rise…the winds blow—which inevitably they will, we shall not fall.
Thank You that You sent Jesus, the Living Word to lead us into all truth. Empower me, through Your Holy Spirit to faithfully and obediently be a doer of the Word. Amen.
Ask yourself this question: Is God’s Word my primary authority? If your answer is yes, then consider how you can better honor and reflect His Word in your daily life. Write down the steps you feel God is asking you to take to prioritize His Word more. Then set a time to get started.
