Jesus said many things that are recorded, and He obviously said other things that have not been handed down in Scripture.
So we ought to take what is recorded in the Word very seriously.
In John 5 He provides a long discourse about whom he is and what is mission is.
He also says something of utmost important to us as born again believers, in terms of what we should be doing.
We obviously want to know about Jesus, we want to relate to Him and we want a successful Christian walk.
In this “speech” Jesus tells us what we require to do in order to find out all about Him.
He says, “Search the scriptures” (John 5 v 39).
Too many Christians are chasing experiences and supernatural stuff instead of going to the source of the best information about the Lord.
The Bible, the Word of God, is where we can be assured of hearing directly from God about God.
Yes, we can hear from the Holy Spirit, but many times people tell me the Lord has spoken to them I know fine well He has not.
I also am aware of times when I have thought I’ve heard directly from God and it turned out it was from somewhere or someone else.
We have a more sure word of prophecy; it is called the Bible (2 Peter 1 v 19).
Do you want or need a “word” from the Lord tonight?
Well I would suggest that you open your Bible, start to read, and in the word of Jesus, search the Scriptures.
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord for your Word and thank you that it is the agent for real and permanent change in my life”.
John 5 v 39…..Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me
