TOPIC: LIVING BY THE WORD (Part 1)
Text: Matthew 4:1-4
Life is lived by different people at different levels and on different things. Some live on drugs, some on emotion and impulse but the best way to live is to live by the word of God.
1. WORD OF GOD AS FOOD FOR THE SOUL
Just as physical food nourishes the body, the word of God nourishes the soul! If the human body’ lacks food or nourishment, it leads to a disease called Kwashiorkor or malnutrition. When a soul lacks spiritual food as well, it leads to spiritual kwashiorkor.
Deut.8:3, Job 23:12, Ps.119:103, Jer.15:16, 1 Pet.2:2.
2. DIVINE INSPIRATION
One of the reasons why the word of God is different from all other words and books is the inspiration of God behind it. The word of God is God Himself, therefore, it carries His divine power.
Jer.36:2, Eze. 1:3, Acts 1:16, 2 Tim.3:16, 2 Pet. 1:21, Rev. 14:13.
Since the word of God has these characteristics, it becomes inevitable and expedient to give attention to it in order to be spiritually nourished.
