Blogging through the Gospels: Day 3~~Live by every word in the WORD

I am participating in the new bible reading plan by Moms Tool Box, it is called Reading through the gospels. I am participating so that I can be with the Lord and so He will show me ALL about His SON. I love digging in and prayerfully examining His words, thoughts and intents, that is why I will be using the SOAP devotion study tool as I read through the gospels.

Wednesday, April 6th~~Day 3: Matthew 4

S= Scripture:

But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘(F)MAN SHALL NOT LIVE ON BREAD ALONE, BUT ON EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD.'” Matt. 4:4

O= Observation:

Jesus the WORD made flesh pointed out that we need to live by EVERY word that comes from the mouth of God. We can’t live out our life based on just the Old Covenant, or just the New Covenant, or just a couple of scriptures scattered throughout the bible.

A= Application:

We need to consider the bible as a whole! We need to read it all, ponder it all, and pray to understand it all. We do not need to find ourselves only living by part of it, or be obsessive about teaching the world around us about a revelation that we feel God has given us based on just a part of the bible or even just one scripture. He may have given you a revelation on a certain area of the word but no matter what that is, it should never become more important than to LIVE is CHRIST! We need to prayerfully consider all of God’s Word’s. Our Focus needs to be based on Jesus Christ, and Him Crucified. The Old Covenant points to HIM through the creation of the world, the lives of God’s people throughout our biblical history, the law, the judgments and the prophecies. The New Covenant completely reveals Him as the word, the words he spoke and lived by, the relationship He had with the Father, the life we walk in HIM and our future in HIM. We need to live, breath and witness with our words and actions that to Live is Christ. Let us do what Jesus said …..Live by EVERY WORD that comes from the mouth of God!!!

P= Prayer:

Oh Father I ask that you continually stir me to know all of you, and all of your word. I pray that I will see my relationship with you through the filter of your complete word!
