Where God's Word Speaks

"GREATER IS HE THAT IS IN YOU, THAN HE THAT IS IN THE WORLD" (1 JOHN 4:4b).

Today's Step in the Word

There is no getting away from the fact that God was from the beginning and is from everlasting to everlasting. God is the Word, the Word is God and there is no separating of the two. When we read the Holy Scriptures we come in close and personal contact with God. We know who He is and what He desires of us. So read God’s Word today.

Heaven and earth shall pass away, but My Words shall not pass away" (Matthew 24:35). "Thy Words were found, and I did eat them; and Thy Word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart . . ."(Jeremiah 15:16)

Monday - Tuesday - Wednesday - Thursday - Friday - Saturday - Sunday

Monday

“Truly in vain is salvation hoped for from the hills, and from the multitude of mountains: truly in the Lord our God is the salvation of Israel” (Jeremiah 3:23).

God is reinforcing that salvation comes only through Him and none other. We cannot seek this indescribable blessing from any medium, force or creation. (See also Psalm 3:8; Isaiah 43:11; Acts 4:12; Ephesians 2:9).

Tuesday

“O Lord, correct me, but with judgment; not in thine anger, lest Thou bring me to nothing” (Jeremiah 10:24).

We are not to hesitate to ask God to correct us. He chastises and corrects those whom He loves. (See also Psalm 6:1; Hebrews 12:5-8).

Wednesday

“And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the Name of the Lord shall be saved” (Acts 2:21).

This verse is popularly misrepresented to advocate that all we need to do is call upon the Lord and we will be saved. However, in comparing spiritual with spiritual we find that no one can call on God unless God draws or inclines him/her to do so. If we do anything without God to earn or accelerate our salvation it invalidates the result. Salvation is all God’s work and we call on Him as He inclines us to understand and acknowledge our deep need for Him and not apply a man-made effort to obtain salvation (See also Isaiah 56:11; John 6:44; Ephesians 1:4; Philippians 2:21; Acts 2:39, 13:48). We have a divine responsibility to come to Christ but it is God who will initiate the drawing of our souls.

Thursday

“Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober” (1 Thessalonians 5:6).

True believers are not sleeping and ignoring God’s teachings on moral and spiritual matters. They are alert and watching in His Word, and are responsible and diligently serving Him to the end. (See also Luke 19:13; Romans 13:11; Ephesians 5:14).

Friday

“But ye brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief” (1 Thessalonians 5:4).

True believers are living in the light of Christ. They are not in spiritual darkness. They are not denying His return but are eagerly and prayerfully awaiting it according to God’s plan. (See also Ephesians 5:8; 1 John 1:6).

Saturday

“Let us search and try our ways, and turn again to the Lord” (Lamentations 3:40).

As God searches us, so are we to search and examine ourselves and deliberately turn from what we know is wrong and wicked and serve Him with our whole heart. (See also Psalm 119:49; 2 Corinthians 13:5; 1 Peter 1:10).

Sunday

“For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings” (Hosea 6:7).

God is specific in what He wants from us and that is obedience to Him through the reading and understanding of His Word. We are not to bring any of our own offerings to God but only what He desires. (See also Deuteronomy 10:12, 13; Psalm 51:16, 17; Isaiah 1:17; Micah 6:7-8).

BIBLE ALERT - This feature takes a look at a Book of the Bible and highlights its spiritual application, meaning and other related facts.

This week’s alert features The Epistle to the Hebrews

The Epistle to the Hebrews urges the Hebrew Christian community not to fall back into Judaism but to acknowledge the priesthood and saving blood of Jesus Christ as a far better atonement for their sin than the old law which required the priests to offer up cleansing sacrifices on many occasions. Hebrews stresses the superiority of Christ’s once for all sacrifice, the immutability of God’s counsel and faithfulness and the hope the true believers have in the complete work of Jesus Christ made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec, priest of the most High God (6:20-7:1).

“Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need” (Hebrews 4:16).

It establishes God’s Word as quick and powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword and reinforces the necessity for Christians to advance from a simplistic knowledge of the Word to a deeper understanding of its truths. It teaches of the new covenant God made with the true believers having put His law in their hearts and completely erased their sins and iniquities and warns about those who will not enter into God’s rest because of their unbelief and hard hearts.
