- It Is Through God’s Word That We Have Life!

- 1 Peter 1:23 - “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.”

- Because Of The Word’s Activity:

- It Is Through God’s Word We Are “Born Again” - New Life In Jesus Christ!

- IE: John Wesley Robbed Returning Home From A Service One Night - Only A Little Money And Some Christian Literature - Thief Was Leaving - Wesley - “Stop! I have something more to give you.” - “My friend, you may live to regret this sort of life. If you ever do, here’s something to remember: ‘The blood of Jesus Christ cleanses us from all sin’!” (1 John 1:7) - Years Later - Greeted By A Successful Christian Businessman - The Robber! - God’s Word, The Very Word Of His Lips, Gave Him Life Through The Gospel!

- Because Of The Word’s Character!

- “Not Of Corruptible Seed, But Of Incorruptible”

- It Produces, But Does Not Decay!

- IE: Seed Planted Produced Corn - Grew & Flourished - Season Ending, Lack Of Rain, Heat Of The Summer Takes Its Toll - Turn Brown & Brittle Before Being Harvested - Seed Of God’s Word Grows And Flourishes, But Will Never Turn Brittle And Die!

- Isaiah 55:11 - “So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.”

* “By The Word Of Thy Lips” There Is Life!
