“So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”
I cannot overstate the importance of the word of God in the life of a believer. Romans 10:14-17 emphasizes this and also reveals the need of preachers in the world today. We need witnesses so faith of people can be built on the sure foundation of the word of God.
Today, while some preachers minister as oracle of God; others do so as orators – teaching human philosophy and traditions of men. Paul warned against this in 1st Timothy 1:4-7 and Titus 1:14. 2 Timothy 2:19 tells us clearly why we must be careful of any teaching that does not warn against sin. Such is not from God.
Living by this foundation keeps you from sin. Matthew 7:21-27 has many lessons for us.
· First, it is wisdom to walk according to the word of God. Some people will say the Bible is too old to offer solutions to the present world issues but what did Jesus say concerning the word of God? He said “For verily, I say unto you, till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled” (Matthew 5:18).
· There will be trials and persecutions against your faith. However, God’s word is a sure anchor. Jesus assures that a house built on the sure foundation of the word of God shall stand.
· It is foolishness to equate the word of man with the word of God. The word of man has no sure foundation; therefore, any house built on human philosophy will crumble in the face of a storm.
Beloved, are you building your house of faith on the solid and infallible word of God or on the sandy soil of the ideology of man? Think about it now and take a decision to walk only by God’s word.
