The Word Creates, Reveals, and Redeems

by Trent - originally posted August 22, 2005

The Bible is the written word, but even without the Bible, the Living Word would not be diminished.

How many ways are there to know that I am alive?

When I recently went to get my wisdom teeth removed (which explains alot of things) ... I was hooked up to alot of equipment that checked vital signs. One would beep, another would draw lines on a chart, another made a blue blip that went across a small screen, and to top it off the nurse took my pulse and anyone could feel the warmth of my skin. Before they knocked me out, I would have shook your hand, and if I wasn't sitting down then I could step on your toe, and all of these things would have shown you that I am alive. Each one was a witness to the same reality - though some of them appealed to the sense of hearing, sight, touch, and ... ahem ... smell.

Such is the nature of God's Word.

The Word is God's vital sign. We know God is alive, because of His Word. The Word is not merely contained as text on paper, Jesus was the Word, and indeed we are surrounded by the Word, as the whole of the universe is held together by God's Word.

Isaiah 55:11
so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.

When we read the scriptures we are reading the little written chart of God's vital signs, it tells us through another method, the exact thing that Jesus tells us, and that the creation tells us, that a shake of the hand or our finger on the pulse would tell us.

The evidence for God's existence is manifold around us, all witnessing to the same reality - which is the firm conclusion that God creates, God reveals, and God redeems.

I serve , the Lord.
