"We see, in many a land, the proudest dynasties and tyrannies still crushing, with their mountain weight, every free motion of the Consciences and hearts of men. We see, on the other hand, the truest heroism for the right and the greatest devotion to the Truth in hearts that God has touched. We have a work to do, as great as our forefathers and, perhaps, far greater. The enemies of Truth are more numerous and subtle than ever and the needs of the Church are greater than at any preceding time. If we are not debtors to the present, then men were never debtors to their age and their time. Brethren, we are debtors to the hour in which we live. Oh, that we might stamp it with Truth and that God might help us to impress upon its wings some proof that it has not flown by neglected and unheeded." -- C.H. Spurgeon . . . "If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." John 8:31, 32 . . . . .

The Priority of God's Word

by A.M. Kisly

Hebrews 4:12 (King James Version)

"For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart."

Time has changed. The quiet days of the past seem all but gone. Our lives have become overwhelmingly busy with too much activity and we wonder how we will be able to balance it all. Balance will only come to those who put first things first. You cannot get very far driving a car with an empty fuel tank, nor will your body be able to function without food and water and rest. Without the daily intake of the Word of God, our spiritual lives become lethargic, weak, and very susceptible to temptations and compromise. The enemy of our soul would have us so busy and distracted as to keep us away from the necessary nourishment of our spirit in order to weaken us in our spiritual walks and thus becoming ineffective in our Christian witness.

The Word of God is a necessity of ones spiritual life....it cannot be ignored. Jesus is the very Word of God...and He who came to earth, died on the cross for our sin, rose again, and is coming again, wants to spend time with each and every one of us. He has things he wants to show us, teach us and reveal to us. He left us His word, The Holy Scriptures, we must take it, feast upon it, and allow Him to instruct us. He will give us clear direction and the needed balance in our lives if we let Him.
