Word of Life

The Bible is able to instruct us "for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus" (2 Timothy ). In other words, the Bible teaches us how to receive salvation and what true faith in Christ means. God's word as found in the Bible has the power to save us. "Therefore put away all filthiness and rank growth of wickedness and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls" (James ).

It is not the text of the Bible that gives eternal life, but the promise of the Lord Jesus Christ. The Lord said, "The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life" (John 6:63). Because the Bible bears witness to Jesus Christ and directs our faith to the Savior, we can receive salvation by trusting and obeying the word of the Lord written in the Bible.

The word of God carries a life-giving power. God "gives birth" to believers through the word of truth (James ). When we give our lives to Jesus Christ and obey him as Lord, we can live a new life and have the hope of eternal life. "You have been born anew, not of perishable seed but of imperishable, through the living and abiding word of God...That word is the good news which was preached to you" (1 Peter 1:23,25). The gospel of Jesus Christ that the Bible preaches is truly the word of life!
