Re:Verse passage – Matthew 4:1-11 (day five).
But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.’” Three times in this passage Jesus answers, “It is written”. When do you suppose Jesus first heard or read these words from Deuteronomy? How many times do you think He read and reviewed them? In His culture and religious context, we know He started when He was a young child being taught the scriptures. And that He reviewed them regularly.
1) God knows the future. He will bring to your attention and heart the scriptures you will need for spiritual growth and strength.
2) Scripture absolutely does what it says it can do- BATTLE SIN- “Your word I have treasured in my heart, That I may not sin against You.”
PREPARE & EQUIP BELIEVERS– “All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness;”
1) Parents/Grandparents, whatever the age of your children start now helping them read, speak, and hear scripture regularly.
2) Adults/Teenagers/Older Children, make time in the scriptures (reading, speaking, and learning) a priority. They will be more valuable to you than you could ever know.
