Your Five-A-Day: God’s Word
The doctor’s prescription is in! Over the next few weeks, we’ll be dissecting the bible’s prescription for living a great life at the Lifepointe church. The series has kicked off with a bang—the reminder that reading, understanding and applying God’s word are a requisite for that abundant life Jesus described in John 10:10. To drive the point all the way home, here’s your five-a-day—five bible verses that, together, strengthen the case for God’s word and highlight its versatility:
If you’re building…
Matthew 7:24-25 (AMPC): So, everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts upon them [obeying them] will be like a sensible (prudent, practical, wise) man who built his house upon the rock. And the rain fell and the floods came and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock.
Or you need fixing…
Psalm 119:107 (MSG): Everything’s falling apart on me, God; put me together again with your Word.
Ok, maybe you’re in the middle of a battle (who isn’t)…
Hebrews 4:12 (AMPC): For the Word that God speaks is alive and full of power [making it active, operative, energizing, and effective]; it is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the [a]breath of life (soul) and [the immortal] spirit, and of joints and marrow [of the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart.
Ephesians 6:17 (AMPC): And take…the sword that the Spirit wields, which is the Word of God.
Or just need perspective, vision, direction and guidance…
Psalm 119:105 (MSG): By your words I can see where I’m going; they throw a beam of light on my dark path.
Here’s to feasting on the word a whole lot more!
