The Complete Word

on Sunday 16, May 2010

When Jesus stood before Pontius Pilate, Pilate asked the question that every generation before and since has been asking: “What is truth?”  Every political ideology, every world religion, every nationality and human culture has its own version of truth.  But over the centuries there is one irrefutable, unchangeable truth – only one answer – one book that addresses the human need and speaks the truth to every heart regardless of generation, culture, political or religious affiliation.  It can never be altered, changed or adjusted to accommodate time or theory or philosophy.  This one truth is the written Word of God!

The Word of the Lord – the Bible – is time tested.  It is living, and therefore can speak to the living.  It was written by God, and so it is creative (Isaiah 55:11) and consistent (Isaiah 40:18).  It is THE TRUTH (Psalms 119:160), and THE LIFE (John 6:63).  It is pure (Psalms 12:6), tried, proven (Psalms 18:30), and right (Psalms 33:4).  It sanctifies (John 17:17), and heals (Psalms 107:20), and it provides light and direction for living (Psalms 119:105).  Because of the Word of the Lord we have HOPE (Psalms 130:5), and eternal life (John 6:68).

His Word is more precious than gold and more sweeter than honey.  It can transform the worst of sinners, and reward those who live according to its ways.  Thank you, Lord, for the eternal, life changing truth of your Word.
