Quote: Word of God

~ Handbook for Daily Living ~



The Word of God – Handbook for Daily Living.


The following is an excerpt from a book.




Wonder is the first step in a four-step progression which results from a study of the Word of God.  Wonder at the God who created the universe. Wonder that the same God who created all, including you, is enough interested in you to provide this written communication to you. Wonder and amazement that this same God desires fellowship with you and because of that was willing to allow His only begotten Son to be cruelly crucified in order that you might have direct access to Him.

“And they were all amazed at the majesty of God. But while everyone marveled at all the things which Jesus did, He said to His disciples, ‘Let these words sink down into your ears, for the Son of Man is about to be betrayed into the hands of men’” (Luke 9:43-44).  


Obligation. The wonder of it all progresses to a deep sense of obligation. Since God not only created you but bought you back at Calvary, you owe Him a life that is surrendered and obedient to Him. He has rights to you by virtue of having created you. He further owns you by outright purchase at the cross of Calvary. You owe Him a loving response of fellowship with Him and a life which is lived in obedience to Him.

“That which we have seen and heard we declare to you, that you also may have fellowship with us; and truly our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ. And these things we write to you that your joy may be full” (1 John 1:3-4).


Relationship to Him. Having realized your obligation to Him, it is up to you to respond in love and gratitude to Him. You must accept the authority of His Word; realize, confess, and repent of your sins; ask Him to forgive you and to make you His child, as you seek to make Him Lord of your life. As you do, God has promised to make you His child. Since you are His child, then you are His heir—and He owns the cattle on a thousand hills. Since you are His heir, you are a co-heir with His own Son, your Savior, your Lord Jesus Christ.

“The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ” (Romans 8:16-17).   


Discipleship is the fourth phase of the progression. True discipleship yields the greatest satisfaction and joy that you can ever achieve in this life. As a disciple you are physically, mentally, emotionally, and most importantly spiritually in tune with life, and with your Creator. You are satisfying the purpose and the function for which you were created. You are experiencing the abundant life as you translate what the Word of God tells you into your daily life. You, as a disciple, are being controlled in every action by the Word of God.

“If you abide in My Word [hold fast to My teachings and live in accordance with them] you are truly My disciples. And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free” (John 8:31-32 Amplified).


The Word of God is not only a book (the Book of Books), but also a person (John 1:1) who deserves your thoughtful allegiance and obedience. He is the source of wisdom and He freely imparts knowledge and power to those who truly put their trust and confidence in Him.
