What the Word of God Says About the Word of God, Book by Book

Discerning

Hebrews 4:12 – For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.

Doable

James 1:22 – But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.

Gracious

1 Peter 1:25 – “But the word of the Lord remains forever.” And this word is the good news that was preached to you.

Spiritual

2 Peter 1:20-21 – No prophecy of Scripture comes from someone’s own interpretation. For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.

Joyful

1 John 1:4 – And we are writing these things so that [y]our joy may be complete.

Uniting

2 John 5 – And now I ask you, dear lady—not as though I were writing you a new commandment, but the one we have had from the beginning—that we love one another.

Verified

3 John 12b – We also add our testimony, and you know that our testimony is true.

Marshaling

Jude 3 – Beloved, although I was very eager to write to you about our common salvation, I found it necessary to write appealing to you to contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints.

Complete

Revelation 22:18-19 – I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book, and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book.
