The Word of God is Truth

The Word of God is Truth

Last week, we have learned about the inerrancy and infallibility of God’s Word through the messages preached on the fourth week of the Wordview series. This simply means that the Word of God is not only true, but is the standard of truth. Throughout Scripture, many passages declared this characteristic of God’s Word:


Your righteousness is righteous forever, and your law is true. (Psalm 119:142)


But you are near, O Lord, and all your commandments are true. (Psalm 119:151)


The sum of your word is truth, and every one of your righteous rules endures forever. (Psalm 119:160)


Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth. (John 17:17)


In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it, to the praise of his glory. (Ephesians 1:13-14)


Of his own will he brought us forth by the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures. (James 1:18)


It is one thing to know that the Word of God is truth, and another thing to live it out in life as the final and ultimate standard of truth. Although this is a hard pill to swallow, we can embrace the Word of God as truth knowing that the Author is reliable and trustworthy. We can believe and depend on God’s Word because of His character. In a world bombarded with lies, we can take comfort and have security in the truth of God’s Word.

Is there a part of your life that hasn’t been surrendered to the truth of God’s Word? Pray that the Lord will teach you to embrace His truth and delight in it this week.

The Worth of the Word

The Worth of the Word

One of the characters in the Bible who greatly expressed a love for the Word of God is David. In Psalm 19, he described it as something desirable like gold and honey. One cannot help but be intrigued with the reasons why he compared God’s Word to such things. As we read the rest of the psalm, we will see the qualities of the Word of God that make it worth than gold.


The Word of God is perfect.

The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul . . . (Psalm 19:7)


The Word of God is sure.

. . . the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple. . . (Psalm 19:7)


The Word of God is right.

. . . the precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart . . . (Psalm 19:8)


The Word of God is pure.

. . . the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes . . . (Psalm 19:8b)


The Word of God is true.

. . . the rules of the Lord are true, and righteous altogether . . . (Psalm 19:9)


In the coming weeks, we will understand the attributes of God’s Word more as we go through the Wordview series. We pray that we will learn to delight in God’s Word like David, and see its worth like he did.

The Power of God’s Word

The Power of God’s Word

Our God is a God who loves to communicate with us, and one of the ways He connects with us is through His Word.

For the past two weeks, we have been learning to value and delight in God’s Word through our Wordview series. We have been studying psalms in our worship services that lead us to appreciate God and His Word even more.

A psalm that vividly discusses the importance of God’s Word is Psalm 119, the longest psalm and longest chapter in the Bible. It gives us insight into the benefits of the Word of God and its effect on our lives. Here are some of its parts which reveal the power of God’s Word.

The Word of God helps us walk in purity.

How can a young man keep his way pure? By guarding it according to your word. (Psalm 119:9)


The Word of God keeps us from sinning against Him.

I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you. (Psalm 119:11)


The Word of God makes us wise and gives us understanding.

Your commandment makes me wiser than my enemies, for it is ever with me. I have more understanding than all my teachers, for your testimonies are my meditation. I understand more than the aged, for I keep your precepts. (Psalm 119:98-100)

The unfolding of your words gives light; it imparts understanding to the simple. (Psalm 119:130)


The Word of God provides us with direction.

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


The Word of God gives us peace.

Great peace have those who love your law; nothing can make them stumble. (Psalm 119:165)


These are only a few examples of how God uses His Word to guide us and, ultimately, to reveal Himself to us. As you devote yourself to God’s Word, you will discover more ways by which God strengthens, encourages, and comforts us.

Which among the five benefits of the Word are you claiming today? Pray that God will demonstrate His power in that part of your life this week.
