“The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation forever.” (Psalms 12:6-7)
Today’s Morsel: The Scriptures are the words of God; and they are pure and holy, free from all human mixtures, and from all fraud and deceit; they are the words of truth. As Peter states, “We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.”(2 Peter 1:19-21) The promises are the words of God, and they are firm and stable, and can always be depended on. The Gospel, and the doctrines of it, are the words of God. It is the sincere milk of the word, pure and incorrupt. As Peter again informs us, “Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently: Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth forever.” (1 Peter 1:22-23) All of God’s word, when it is dispensed by the faithful ministers whom He called to minister it; should promote purity and holiness of heart and life in all. It’s already been tried and proven; so, use it.
Sing: Tell me the story of Jesus, write on my heart every word. Tell me the story most precious, precious that ever was heard. Tell how the angels in chorus, Sang as they welcomed His birth. Glory to God in the highest, peace and good tidings to earth.
