The Integrity of God’s Word

Heaven and Earth will pass away, but God’s Word will never pass away; it is eternal. Trust in and rely on the Word Of God. Make it an integral part of your daily life. Feed on the Word daily for strength and spiritual maturity.

Central Scriptures:

“For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled” (Matthew 5:18).

God’s Word is forever settled in Heaven (Psalm 119:89, Isaiah 40:8, Matthew 24:35, 1 Peter 1:25).

God inspired people to write the Bible. The truths contained in it were written for our learning (Romans 15:4).

God has magnified His Word above His name (Psalm 138:2).

Man does not survive only by eating physical food, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God (Deuteronomy 8:3).

  • The Word of God must be our primary source of sustenance.
  • Job esteemed the Word of God higher than natural food (Job 23:12).
  • The Word of God is sweet like something sweet to the taste (Psalm 119:103).
  • The Word is to be searched, found, and consumed (Jeremiah 15:16).
  • Just as babies need milk to grow, we need the spiritual milk of the Word to help us grow spiritually (1 Peter 2:2).
  • So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. (Romans 10:17)

Life Lessons:

  • We are spiritually mature when we make decisions that agree with the Scriptures.
  • Our attitudes reflect the level of our spiritual maturity.
  • Many times, when people have bad attitudes, it is a clear sign that they have not been feeding their spirits with the Word of God.
  • Babies cry when they are hungry. Likewise, people act out when they are spiritually hungry.
  • Our bad attitudes and moods indicate we are Word-deficient.
  • There is a voice behind the Word that gives us answers for every situation we face.
  • We should make plans to read the Word of God daily, and learn how to reverence Him (Deuteronomy 17:19).
  • We should make the Word of God a daily priority in our lives, not simply another source of information.
  • Transformation takes place in our lives when we make the Word our final authority.
  • When we learn to honor His Word, giving it priority in our lives, God honors us.
  • Search the Scriptures; they testify of God (John 5:39; Isaiah 34:16; Acts 17:11).
  • The Scriptures belong in our hearts. They must penetrate the very core of our being (Deuteronomy 6:6, Deuteronomy 11:18).
