Lesson 14

How a Believer must study the Word Attributes of the Word


As we come to a close in this study, listing the attributes of the Word is a great way to recap what we have learned and look at the study in a different way.

The Word is true, pure and perfect

V     2 Samuel 22:31 As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all them that trust in him.

V     Psalms 12:6 The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.

The Word is Eternal

V     Psalms 119:89 For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.

V     Isaiah 40:8 The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.

V     1 Peter 1:25 But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.

The Word is Sustenance

V     Deuteronomy 8:3 And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live.

V     Psalms 119:103 How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!

V     Jeremiah 15:16 Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O LORD God of hosts.

For all ages

V     1 Peter 2:2 As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:

V     Hebrews 5:12-14 (Read)

V     1 John 2:14

The Word is Profitable to us

V     2 Timothy 3:16-17 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.


For next week I would like you to find more scriptures and instances which reveal the attributes of the Word. When you get together next time discuss and compare what you have discovered.
