In this 6-part series, Pastor Miles McPherson explores the ways in which God communicates with His people. As a living and active God (rather than a lifeless idol), the Lord conveys His thought through prophets, dreams, the Holy Spirit, appearances, prayer, even His creation. He is never separated from His Word, as we are when our words go out from us; it is always part of Him. But His ultimate expression is summed up in the form of Jesus Christ, the Living Word of God.
God’s word has power. It is uplifting, inspiring, lighting our paths, building our minds, cleansing us and engraving itself on our hearts. We can allow God’s Word to lead and shape us in every way. It is the model of wisdom and truth to which we should all aspire in obedience.
