The Prescription for Life

The Word of God is not something we should attempt to live up to; the Word is our source of life. God warned man against seeing His Word as a rule book; He emphatically declares that His Word is our place of rest and we must see it that way or we will fall deeper and deeper into sin (Isaiah 28:9-13). We must rest in His Word continually and depend on Him rather than on ourselves. To rest in Christ means to rest in His Word; it means that we put our hope in the Word instead of in ourselves. We will continually go the Word for the help that we need rather than trying to fix ourselves when we are resting in Christ. We recognize the Word as our Spiritual Source we feel no need to go elsewhere for help. When you are at rest you are stationary; you are not moving from place-to-place.

When we are at rest we have ceased to work. Instead of trying to live up to the Word, which is impossible, we are to live through the Word. The Word was never given to man as a quest or a goal; the Word was given to man as the prescription for life. The Word is the treatment for the flesh; it is the cure for our sinful nature. If we look at the Word as something we can attain or live up to apart from Christ we will never live dependent on it; as a result, we will live as slaves to our own flesh.

We are told that the law was given as a schoolmaster (Galatians 3:24). The law was not given to us so that we could strive to conquer it; it was given to point out our desperate need for Christ. God longs for us to see the Word as our Source for Spiritual life and He longs for us to cling to this life.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
