Apostle Grace Lubega
Matthew 4:4 (KJV); 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.
We do not live by a few favourable words but we live by EVERY word that proceeds from the mouth of God.
Our theme scripture seeks to teach us the necessity of investing everything we can to understand ALL the scriptures.
We cannot afford to understand some parts and ignore others. While some portions of the Bible may hold higher truths than others, it does not mean that these truths are not important for our understanding.
For example, there are those who think the Old Testament is not important to the new creature yet in Luke 24:27, the Bible says of Christ, “And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.”
If you disregard the Old Testament, it means that you reject even the truths about Christ that are revealed therein.
Living by every Word means that we understand the scriptures in totality and not simply by picking out parts that are only convenient for us.

GOLDEN NUGGET: Living by every Word that proceeds from the mouth of God means that we understand the scriptures in totality and not simply by picking out parts that are only convenient for us.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for the gift of Your Word. Thank You for what it has done in my life. The Bible says that all scripture is God-breathed and profitable. I study the Word with this understanding and by it, I am established in truth, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
