What Is God's Word (The Bible) Like?




GOD'S WORD IS LIKE A FIRE

Jeremiah 5:14 (NASB) saysTherefore, thus says the Lord, the God of hosts, because you have spoken this word, behold, I am making My words in your mouth fire, and this people wood, and it will consume them.”

GOD'S WORD IS LIKE A SWORD

Hebrews 4:12 (NASB) says For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.”

GOD'S WORD IS LIKE A HAMMER

Jeremiah 23:29 (NASB) says “Is not My word like fire? declares the Lord, and like a hammer which shatters a rock?”

GOD'S WORD IS LIKE A SEED

1 Peter 1:23 (NASB) says for you have been born again not of seed which is perishable but imperishable, that is, through the living and enduring word of God.”

GOD'S WORD IS LIKE MILK

1 Peter 2:2 (NASB) says like newborn babies, long for the pure milk of the word, so that by it you may grow in respect to salvation,”

GOD'S WORD IS LIKE SOLID FOOD

Hebrews 5:12-14 (NASB) says For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you have need again for someone to teach you the elementary principles of the oracles of God, and you have come to need milk and not solid food. For everyone who partakes only of milk is not accustomed to the word of righteousness, for he is an infant. But solid food is for the mature, who because of practice have their senses trained to discern good and evil.”

GOD'S WORD IS LIKE A LIGHT

Psalm 119:105 (NASB) says “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.”

GOD'S WORD IS LIKE A MIRROR

James 1:23-24 (NASB) says For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks at his natural face in a mirror; for once he has looked at himself and gone away, he has immediately forgotten what kind of person he was.”

READING GOD'S WORD EVERY DAY

 WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE!

This is the only way that you can grow from being a milk drinker to being a solid food eater (from baby to mature Christian).

Psalm 19:7-11 (NASB) says The law of the Lord is perfect, restoring the soul; The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple. The precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; The commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes. The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; The judgments of the Lord are true; they are righteous altogether. They are more desirable than gold, yes, than much fine gold; Sweeter also than honey and the drippings of the honeycomb. Moreover, by them your servant is warned; In keeping them there is great reward.”

FOR NEW CHRISTIANS

If you are a new Christian, we recommend that you begin your reading in the Gospel of John and then in the Book of Romans. These are the foundational books and are the easiest to read and understand. Initially, don't read more than one chapter each day. Give yourself time to meditate and gain a good understanding of what it is saying – especially to you.

May God richly bless you as you grow in Christ through the reading of God's Word,
