The Bible the Word of God is Living – Church Hymn

A beautiful song about “The Bible, the Word of God is Living”. This Hymn is based on Hebrews 4:12.

Sometimes we fail to realize how living and powerful the words of the Bible are. Hebrews 4:12 is “For the word of God is living, and active, and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing even to the dividing of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to discern the thoughts and intents of the heart”.

The Lyrics are:

Title: The Bible, the Word of God is living

The Bible, the Word of God is living
The Word is living, God’s Word is powerful
The Word is sharper, sharper
God knows everything, you cannot hide

The Bible, the Word of God is living
The Word is living, God’s Word is powerful
The Word divides soul and spirit
soul and spirit, what is me and what is God

(bridge)

The Bible, the Word of God is living
The Word is living, God’s Word is powerful
Every Word of God is living and powerful
God knows everything

The Word is living
The Word is living

The text is: In the beginning God created the heavens and earth. God then created man in His image for His purpose and glory.

Jesus gives eternal life to all those who believe in Him.

Charles Spurgeon – God is the God of Love

This is a little background on the song “God is the God of Love

In writing the Christian song, I was trying to express the fact of God’s love as mentioned in John 3:16 (God so loved the world that He gave His Son) and the verses in 1 John about “God is Love”. I was also trying to show the points that are unique and district about Christianity above all other religions. One point that sets Christianity apart is God is the God of love. God is not after us to punish us. Thats why He sent his Son so that in believing in Him we could have eternal life.

So I came us with the phrase “God is the God of Love”. Yet I wondered if anyone else used this phrase. In doing a search I found it not in songs but in a sermon from Charles Spurgeon.

… we think of what God is. …why art thou at enmity with God? God is the God of love; he is kind to his creatures; … Do you hate God because he loves you?  — Charles Spurgeon

So Spurgeon also used this phrase that I came up with.

So the phrase “God is the God of Love” is a great descriptive set of words to describe this aspect of God.  Now don’t forget God is also just, so be sure you believe in Jesus so you can fully receive and appreciate all God can do for you.  Us sinners can easily come to God through His Son Jesus Christ. God has made a way for us fallen sinful imperfect humans to accept from God Eternal Life. So again do your part to get all God can give you, you just need to believe in Jesus.

Help Me Worship God

Jesus says “God is Spirit and to worship God, we must do so in spirit and in reality”   This is a statement recorded by John in chapter 4.  So to worship God we must do so in spirit and in reality. Jesus was so clear about how the Father wants us to worship Him.  Enjoy a short devotional video on “Help Me Worship God”

Here is John 4:21-24
Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father. Ye worship ye know not what:we know what we worship:for salvation is of the Jews. But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth:for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit:and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.HelpMeWorshipGod_3056

God Will Put You in Impossible Situations to Prove He is God

God loves impossible situations!

Elijah, God’s prophet, faced an impossible and discouraging situation. The people of Israel refused to follow God and worshipped idols despite His unfailing kindness to them. How did Elijah handle these thankless rebels? He trusted God and turned to Him in fervent prayer. God responded with a series of amazing miracles that proved He, alone, was the true God, and challenged the people of Israel to obey God’s Word.

Let’s consider another impossible situation from earlier in Israel’s history. God chose Abraham out of a pagan society and made a very important covenant with him. God asked Abraham to leave his country and family for a new land He would show him. Just imagine what a difficult thing God was asking Abraham to do. It was nearly an impossible challenge for Abraham, but he pulled up stakes and left his home in Ur of the Chaldeans, never turning back. God graciously blessed Abraham’s trust, declaring him to be righteous in His sight.

Now consider the children of Israel and another impossible situation in this timeline.

  • Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, twelve sons
  • A famine
  • Down to Egypt they go
  • They are led into slavery
  • After 400 years of slavery they cried to the Lord, the Lord raised up a deliver, Moses
  • There was much talking by Moses and miracles showing Egypt God’s judgment for refusing to let His people go free.
  • Now they are free and traveling towards the good land of Israel as God promised

Then they arrived at to the Red Sea, facing another impossible situation

They were walled in on four sides:

  • Behind: the army of Egypt
  • In front: the Red Sea
  • On the left: mountains
  • On the right: mountains

So what could they do?

They cried to the Lord, and the Lord made a way through the Red Sea.
This is by means of another miracle led by Moses listening to God and following God’s command.

God’s people were griping and complaining while Moses was listening to God’s Word and depending on God’s grace.

God loves impossible situations!

God will always make a way through life’s challenges and difficulties if we believe Him, pray and trust Him.

Learn to pray through the rough situations that come your way and obey God.

God will put you in impossible situations to prove that He is God.
