The Living Word

12 06 2007

You have been born anew, not of perishable but of imperishable seed, through the living and enduring word of God.
(1Peter 1:23)

Yes, the living word of God; the enduring word of God.

The other day, our cat walked past a stuffed toy, which was sitting upright on the bedroom floor – in a new place. The cat was mildly startled, just for a moment: a new living creature in my home? But not so; it was after all, completely unanimated; (although I could have sworn I saw an eye move).

Some people choose to believe that God is just an idea, invented by superstitious people, to explain the inexplicable. Others believe God is passive, never does anything, about anything. But, we believe differently, we relate to the Living Word:

The eternal Son of God is ‘upholding the universe by his powerful word’ (Hebrews 1:3).

The LORD upholds all who are falling, and raises up all who are bowed down (Psalm 145:14)

The living word of God is not static or dead. Scripture is the written Word of God. Jesus is the living Word of God. He is active, speaking to our lives; present to us; upholding and sustaining all things, according to his will and plan. We worship the Living God – a consuming fire. When Peter suddenly saw who Jesus really was, he blurted out these famous words: “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.” (Matthew 16:16)

Living Lord Jesus, in your grace you consume our evil upon the cross; you enliven us again with forgiveness, removing our guilt, by the power of the Holy Spirit. No longer zombies, we truly live in you. O Thank you!

Thanks Peter. No I have not seen this website, until now.

I notice that you have recorded this same comment – “nice blog” – on many spots on the internet. Is it therefore genuine, or just a method of getting me to look at your website?

I see you are Mormon. This teaching to which you adhere, is heresy. The final revelation has come in Christ. You add to it, because you do not grasp it.

May the Spirit, in mercy, open the truth of grace, fully in Jesus Christ, to you.
