The Bible calls God the “living God.”
Our Bible is God’s Word and, get this, it is living!
This only makes sense. When the living God speaks, He speaks living words.
As Peter says of Christ, “thou hast the words of eternal life.”
Earlier in that same passage, Jesus says, “the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.”
His words are spirit and life. They reveal and, in some mysterious way, ARE the living God.
As John explains in John 1, “In the beginning was the word, the word was with God and the word was God.” Later John says, “And the word became flesh and dwelt among us.”
Jesus Christ is the word. The Living Word. He reveals the Living God.
The Bible is God’s living word and is God’s living Spirit.
This all seems totally cool! By God’s Word we get to know God and interact with His Spirit. How is that not awesome?!
I’ll tell ya how, cuz one of the main jobs of the Spirit is to convict men of sin.
If you don’t mess with God’s Word, you avoid God’s Spirit, thus you avoid guilt and the painful reality of sin.
