I love God

Matthew 4:4

Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.

In a round about way I came across this verse today, and it really struck me that Jesus said we live on “every word that comes from Gods mouth”.

He didn’t say every word that CAME from…

And he didn’t say every word from Gods mouth that is recorded in the bible.

He also didn’t say we live BY the word.

He did say “on every word that comes from the mouth of God”

The idea here is that Jesus answered in the current tense. That along with that fact that God never changes leads me to believe that Gods voice can still be heard today.

This is a simple explanation, but it seems to hit home today.

    Hmmm…simple logic to answer the old question. Thanks God for using simple logic to confound the wise!

    Note to Jeremy: I am NOT calling you simple here; just the simplicity of the logic which we overlook in our preoccupation to look wise. – KH
