The Believers Relationship to the Word.

James 1:18-24 JAMES1-4.WPD

{18} In the exercise of His will He brought us forth by the word of truth, so that we might be, as it were, the first fruits among His creatures. {19} This you know, my beloved brethren. But let everyone be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger; {20} for the anger of man does not achieve the righteousness of God. {21} Therefore putting aside all filthiness and all that remains of wickedness, in humility receive the word implanted, which is able to save your souls. {22} But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves. {23} For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks at his natural face in a mirror; {24} for once he has looked at himself and gone away, he has immediately forgotten what kind of person he .

INTRODUCTION:

What is your relationship to the Word of God. Let me share what I believe about the Bible. I comfortable using three words beginning with the letter "I" to describe what I believe about the Bible.

The word Inspired, tells us God breathed the scripture. He inspired the writers to write. What is written is the word of God.

The word Infallible, tell us the Bible will not lead someone in a fallible way when it is properly interpreted and applied.

The word Inerrant, tells us the Bible is without error in the original language. God has also watched over the translations so mankind has always had a trustworthy Bible.

I prefer the New American Standard Bible but I believe the King James and the New International Bibles are trustworthy. When I go to the Bible I approach it as the very word of God. I do not go to the Bible looking for a word form God, I believe it is all the word of God. Therefore I believe we Receive much from the word of God.
