Word Food

Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that
proceeds out of the mouth of God. - Matthew 4:4

One of my favorite scriptures from one of my favorite passages. So...What makes God's word, good food?

God's word gives us a taste of God; because God's word reveals God. In fact, God's word IS God. God wants us to consume His word. To be nurtured by His word. To live off His word.

God's word feeds our souls. It purifies our souls. Most importantly, it saves our souls. God's word comforts, convicts and converts. God's word is living. God's word is active. But God's word will never fade away.

It's no wonder God has exalted above all things His name and His word (Psalm 138:2). Both are perfect, because both are one.

God loves His word. How can we do any less?

Being born again, not of corruptable seed, but of incorruptable seed; by the WORD of God, which lives and abides forever.
