MEDITATIONS ON THE TRUE CHRISTIAN LIFE
Glenn H. Jackson
______...."This book of the law [the Word of God] shall not depart from [always
be in] your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful [take heed] to do according to all that is written in it; for THEN you will make your way prosperous, and THEN you will have success".... Joshua
[part 1 of 4]
____God's Word is the only
authentic revelation of God's Will. All human statements of divine Truth, however correct, are defective and carry a measure of human authority. In the Word of God, the Voice of God speaks to us directly. Every child of God is called to direct communion with
the Father through the Word.
____As God reveals all His Grace in the Word His child can, if he receive it from God, get all the life and power in that Word into his own life. We are aware how few second hand reports
of messages or events can be fully trusted. Very few men can report accurately what they have heard.
____Every believer has the right and privilege to communicate directly with God. God has revealed Himself
in His Word and He continues to do so to every believer.
...."For the Word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division
of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are open and laid bare to the eyes of Him with whom we have to do. Therefore, since we
have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession".... Hebrews 4:12-14 NASB
