God’s Word saves us from eternal life in the Lake of Fire:
~1 Peter 1:23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.
God’s Word increases our faith:
~Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
God’s Word cleanses us as we mature in Christ. By this, I mean that His Word challenges us to live more righteously with each passing day:
~John 15:3 Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.
God’s Word sanctifies us for His use. Through His Word, we are cleansed and regenerated by being born again. Christ’s righteousness now covers us and all the Father sees is His precious Son’s righteousness over us. That is the only way we can be found holy and without blemish because we are all sinners (Romans 3:10) in need of salvation.
~Ephesians 5:26-7 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
God’s Word is so important! It is necessary for salvation. It is necessary for the believer to grow more Christ like. It is necessary to encourage the believer as he walks on his journey! Thank You, Lord, for Your Word!!
