Scriptural Readings: Matthew 4:4
Have we given serious thoughts about how important words are or just even a word? In school we were taught that a sentence is a word or words grammatically linked, complete in itself together conveying a statement, question, exclamation, or command. But does this mean anything? A lot!
Words are not just bunch of letters constructed in a sentence all lined up in a paragraph saying what we want written on a paper or in our e mail or maybe words that we promise or tell others what we think of what maybe is good or bad. There are still some people though in some parts of this world who still believe the alakazam or the hocus pocus and a lot of these mumbo jumbo chant stuffs are still working for them.
If words written or spoken are packed together with the right intentions will result to powerful messages that can move lives. Every letter that we key in whatever device we have whether from a computer down to the smallest smart phone for a command will change entirely a peaceful and orderly world to a disorderly chaotic world, a total disaster or a scenario in a court giving freedom to a man when a judge from his judgement seat declares not guilty making him innocent accused of a crime he did not commit, setting him free.
When I was a kid, I was taught how words are important. Telling a lie is one thing that would put me into a lot of troubles and shame(totally true!). These are words. The same words that taught me what love is all about and how to get and earn respect on the letters that make up my name, our names!
v. But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
Starting our day with prayers as Christians, our faith tells us how important words are as we express ourselves to God not only of what our intents for Him but also to give Him praise, honor and glory! Words that we have to be true with as God has been to us.
The thing that we have to know, however, these powerful words from our Omnipotent God who created the universe came from Him, every word that proceeded out from the mouth of God, sitting from His throne. The source of everything is from our God. Every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God is our lives. With out God and His words we will cease to exist! The words He is saying to us might not be audible with our ears but we know God is the source of these powerful words we know inside of us.
There is nothing impossible for God. As a matter of fact He humbled Himself and He became a man. We called Him Jesus Christ. The words and commandments of Jesus are words from the throne of our almighty God! Making these words the words that we have to live by. The powerful truth about the Word!
