The Gift of God's Word

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:1

He has manifested His very being within His written Word.



Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet, a light unto my path. Psalms 199:105

God must think highly of written word because the written word, God's word, is one of the main vehicles in which He communicates with His people. With Moses, He wrote His commandaments as a measuring stick for His people, and many of our Nation's laws have evolved from these perfect precepts.
Proverbs 6:23
For the commandment is a lamp and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life

When we look at the bible we see His love letters to His people, the history of our fore-fathers and our Lord, and a record of prophecy and completion of that prophecy. God created such a perfect instrument by which He communicates with us, it will take eternity to discover all the wisdom and pleasure written there.

We find that there is nothing that we are required to do that is harmful and all things, when applied, benefit us and those around us in daily living.


Marriage


Song Of Solomon

tells of the perfect love of God for His church and when applied to a husband and wife relationship can bring much happiness to an earthly relationship.


Parenting
Proverbs 22:6- Train up a child in the way he should go and when he isold, he will not depart from it. God gives us His instruction for our well-being. Hence, we pass on that same instruction to the children we love so dearly for their best. The scripture is full of sound parenting advice. Advice that gives us comfort. Advice that removes selfishness which is where true happiness begins.

Friendship
His Word tells us how to be a good friend.
Proverbs 17:17
A friend loveth at all times and a brother was born for adversary.

Ever hear the expression," you can choose your friends but you can't choose your family?" Friends are friends by choice. They are there regardless of flaws.
Proverbs 27:6-Faithful are the wounds of a friend, but the kisses of the enemy are deceitful.
A friend will tell you the truth or when you have messed up and will still be there for you.
James 2:23-Abraham was called a friend of God

How often, we take for granted the gift of God's Word. The road map for our well being is so readily available in our country and it is often times misused, neglected and abused. In other countries, God's Word is burned and banned. People are jailed and murdered for posessing it. These people are thirsty for it and when they have the privileged occasion to see it, they burn what they read into their hearts.
and...
For those of us who have several in our homes and rarely read what He has to say to us...
what a pity...
Why do we not thirst for it?
Our soul should pant for it..
The Word,
the Shepherd's love letter to His sheep....
