The Glorious Word of God

 

     “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God” was Jesus’ first recorded citation of Scripture (Matthew 4:4).  It summarizes the “jot and tittle” love and respect that Jesus had for God’s word and His utter submissiveness to it.

     His profound reverence for the Scriptures came from His clear understanding and appreciation of God’s word.  Psalm 119 describes its immense glory in the following ways:

  • Righteous (vv. 1-8)
  • Holy (vv. 9-16)
  • Delightful (vv. 17-24)
  • Strengthening (vv. 25-32)
  • Good (vv. 33-40)
  • All-sufficient (vv. 41-48)
  • Indestructible (vv. 49-56)
  • Trustworthy (vv. 57-64)
  • Faithful (vv. 65-72)
  • Right (vv. 73-80)
  • Dependable (vv. 81-88)
  • Unshakable (vv. 89-96)
  • Truthful (vv. 97-104).
  • Enlightening (vv. 105-112)
  • Immovable (vv. 113-120)
  • Instructive (vv. 121-128)
  • Inerrant (vv. 129-136)
  • Pure (vv. 137-144)
  • Able to save (vv. 145-152)
  • Eternal (vv. 153-160)
  • Infallible (vv. 161-168)
  • Perfect (vv. 169-176)

     It is the pilgrim’s map, the pilot’s compass, the soldier’s sword.  It contains all things that pertain to life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3).
