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 2 of 4]
The Word Of God Is A Living Word
____The Word of God is a Living Word. It carries a divine quickening power in it. The human expression of the truth is often a mere conception or image of the Truth. It appeals to the mind but has little
or no effect.
It gets its power only when we have faith that it is God's OWN Word. Everything needs form in order to be know or expressed. The words in which God has chosen to clothe His own divine thoughts are God-breathed.
The life of God dwells in them.
____God is not the God of the dead but ot the living. The Word was not only inspired when first given: The Spirit of God still breathes in it. God is still in and with His Word.
Christians and teachers need to believe this. They must have the simple confidence that the Word of God is different from all human teaching.
...."For, "All flesh is
like grass, and all its glory like the flower of grass. The grass withers, and the flower falls off, but the Word [Will] of the Lord endures forever".... 1 Peter 1:24-25 NASB
