Where Do You Find Life?

We do NOT live by bread alone…
or a good economy
or a good marriage
or a good job
or the Red Sox winning their 100th anniversary game
or low gas prices
or six pack abs
or cool parents
or respect
or sex
or money
or power
or ______.

BUT by every Word that God speaks…
that restores sanity
that renews hope
that regenerates souls
that transforms everything
that heals horrors
that crushes idols
that lives forever
that creates life
that resurrects “dead”
that does “impossible”
that reveals motives
that forgives anyone
that judges everyone.

Without God’s Word…
we will believe lies
we will worship idols
we will find death
we will lose sanity
we will choose self
we will nurse bitterness
we will crave control
we will destroy each other
we will hide sin
we will refuse healing
we will run away
we will _______
we will deny Jesus.

Jesus was right–“It is written, “‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’” (Matthew 4:4 ESV)

That’s why we need God’s Word and…therefore need to read God’s Word. It alone gives us life.
