For in Him we live and move and have our being;…
The very existence of our life is found in Jesus Christ. Because of Him we have life. Jesus is the Word that became flesh, therefore He and the Word are one. To truly live we must allow His Word to work in us. In 2 Timothy 3:16-17 we are told that all scripture is profitable for doctrine, rebuke, correction, and instruction in righteousness so that we may be throughly equipped for every good work (what God has planned for us). We must continually receive sound doctrinal teaching from the Word of God. False doctrine is the result of man’s opinion and taking scripture out of context. So make sure you are receiving sound doctrine. As we are taught the Word of God rebuke will come, which means a revealing of areas in our life that need to change. If we will receive rebuke we will then receive correction from the Word, which is God revealing to us how to change the areas we are not walking in line with His will. As we make these corrections we are instructed in righteousness, doing what is pleasing to God which brings us into a deeper relationship with Him. Letting the Word do it’s work in your life is how you truly live, move, and have the kind of life God has for you.
