This is a little cut from the last message, the bridge to knowing Jesus, it is an expansion of this very significant and easiest way to knowing our friend Jesus.
At the beginning of this message, we talked about lack of wisdom, this wisdom doesn’t imply the wisdom of this world, it talks about another kind of wisdom, wisdom in knowing Jesus, wisdom in learning to obey him regardless of our differences, principles, addictions, habits and so on.
What are we really talking about? The Word Of God, also called the bible. The bible gives us insights on what the Word Of God is really about, in fact, it gives us lots of understanding of the word.
Let’s see what the bible tells us about itself;
Hebrews 4:12 KJV
For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
It is quick and powerful, sharp and piercing, it is very fast in penetrating into the heart, when you read the Word Of God and there’s a particular sin you commit that is being stated, instantly the Word Of God will point it out, it is very blunt and straight forward, its goes into the heart and divides the knowledge, word, reasoning, thoughts you have and immediately tells you which is right and wrong, which is acceptable and not, which will draw you closer to your friend Jesus and which would take you farther away.
The Word Of God is very powerful becomes it comes straight from the mind of God, directly. It contains the mind Of God.
If you don’t already know, let me tell you something interesting, God’s word has every answers to every question even than Google, and it is very accurate. If you use Google very well like me, you will notice that sometimes Google could never answer your questions, or when it does it could never answer it the way you want, but I want to assure you and tell you today, that the Word Of God can answer any question you have in your heart, whatever it may be.
1 Jn 2:5
But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.
The bible says that when you study the Word Of God and keep every commandment in it, you have that assurance, confident that you are in him, and you grow more in him, you build your love in him, he loves you more.
The Power In The Word Of God does not end there;
What The Word Of God Can Do For You :
Like I mentioned earlier that the Word Of God is able to answer every question you have, let’s see some of the questions we frequently ask and the answers to them.
Why am I not loved?
Isaiah 54:10 KJV
For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the Lord that hath mercy on thee.
Your family will let you down, your friends will forsake you, even that boy or girl that you were thinking loved you so much they could die for you would leave you, but God said his kindness will never depart from you.
The bible says greater love hath no man than this than a man should lay down his life for his friend, and the book of 1 Jn. 4:9, Jn 3:16, gives a brief show of how Jesus died for us, because he loves you so much, he can’t bear to see you perish.
Jeremiah 31:2-3 KJV
The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying , Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with loving kindness have I drawn thee.
See!! He Loves You!!!
2. Why am I alone?
Matthew 28:20 KJV
Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
How can you still think you are alone when He promised by himself that he is with you, till the end.
Why are you still afraid of what others will think or you, all those sinful friends from your past, before you became a friend of Christ, why does your past terrify you? why have you decided to be a slave to sin when you are supposed to reign as a king on everything and anything? (Rom 5:17)
Hebrews 13:5-6 KJV
Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
 So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.
He said he will not leave you nor forsake you.NEVER. And, he gave us the confidence to stand against anyone, whoever it is, because HE IS GOD.
3. What is in it for me when I keep the Word Of God?
A lot. The bible says in;
Luke 11:28 KJV
But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it.
You are blessed.
4. Am I now a friend of God?
John 8:47 KJV
He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.
When you lay your ears down for the Word Of God, you are God’s, you are not of the world but of God.
5. I am shy
Acts 4:31 KJV
And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.
When you read the word of God, you overcome your shyness and will not be afraid to talk about Jesus anywhere.
6. Will I still go back to the world?
Critical question, a question that will not only require deep thinking but a lifetime commitment to God. And of course the bible has a ready answer.
Acts 6:2 KJV
Then the twelve called the multitude of the disciples unto them , and said, It is not reason that we should leave the word of God, and serve tables.
When the Word Of God becomes a part of you, going back to the world, forsaking his presence, backsliding, will be a shameful thing to do, you will want to speak the word of God, talk to people about Him, read his word and communicate with him at any time you get, (Jeremiah 20:9 KJV
Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name. But his word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay .)
