The Word of God

“For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.” 1 Corinthians 1:21

The Word of God is indispensable for salvation. We are conceived by it. 1 Peter 1:23 says that we are “born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the Word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.”

The Word of God is indispensable for sanctification. We are cleansed by it. 1 Peter 1:22 says, “Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren.”

The Word of God is indispensable for sustenance. We are completed by it. “And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to Me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on Me shall never thirst” (John 6:35).

Do you want to grow? Then you’d better get into the Word of God.
