Man shall not live from bread alone but from every word that proceeds from the mouth of God. Jesus Christ is the Word of God. The words of Jesus are Spirit and life. They give life to those who hear them and who obey them.
People get excited about the words and the teachings of preachers of mere men, but they reject the words of Jesus Christ. Believers quote the words of the servants of Jesus, rather than the words of Jesus Himself. The words of Jesus are the words of life, the words that He spoke as they are recorded in the Gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, and the words of Jesus that He speaks to His servants, His disciples, His followers; they give life to those who listen and obey. Those are the words of life, not the words of men.
Are we listening to Jesus? Do we hear His voice and do we hear the words of life? Do we obey Him and do we have life? Do we take seriously the words of Jesus? Do we crave and ask for Him to speak to us, to guide us and to teach us, or do we run after mere men, after people who cannot help us? Only Jesus has the words of eternal life. Listen to Jesus and you will live. Listen and your soul will live.
May Jesus bless you.
