The Word was made flesh and dwelt among us The Holy Bible
Reading God's Word
"All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work."
2 Timothy 3:16-17

Encounter the Word

the way, the truth, and the life

"...blessed are those who hear the Word of God and observe it." - Luke 11:28

Word4Truth is a non-profit Christian ministry committed to the power, sufficiency, and authority of the Scriptures and to the proclamation of the Gospel of Christ Jesus. We seek to inspire a deeper understanding and devotion to The Word of God and The God of the Word.

Through the teaching of God's Word, the Holy Scriptures, Word4Truth endeavors to instill the understanding and conviction that God's Word is as pertinent today as it has ever been, uniquely revealing God's nature and will to us.

The Bible is 'The Book of Books;' consisting of 66 books, written by 40 different authors over a period of 1,500 years with a consistent, unified theme: salvation by grace alone through faith alone in Christ Jesus. It provides the answers to:

    Where did I come from?
    Why am I here?
    Where am I going?

The Bible is so unique and powerful, it is the only book that can change our nature and transform us from within. As we read and study the Scriptures, we learn who God is, what God thinks, what God wants, what God expects, how God responds, and how we are to respond to Him. The Bible is God's instruction book to us and our guide for daily living.

It is said that the Bible contains:

  • The mind of God,
  • The state of man,
  • The way of salvation,
  • The doom of sinners, and
  • The happiness of believers.

Its doctrine is holy, its precepts are binding, its histories are true, and its decisions are immutable. Read it to be wise, believe it to be saved, and practice it to be holy.

It contains light to direct you, food to support you, and comfort to cheer you. It is the traveler's map, the pilgrim's staff, the pilot's compass, the soldier's sword, and the Christian's charter. Here heaven is open and the gates of hell are disclosed.

Christ is the grand subject, our good it's design, and the glory of God it's end. It should fill the memory, rule the heart, and guide the feet.

Read it slowly, frequently, and prayerfully. It is a mine of wealth, health to the soul, and a river of pleasure. It is given to you here in this life, will be opened at judgment, and is established forever.

It involves the highest responsibility, will reward the greatest labor, and condemn all who trifle with its contents.

For us to know and have an intimate relationship with the Living Word, we must open our Bibles and study the written Word.

"For you have been born again not of seed which is perishable but imperishable, that is, through the living and enduring Word of God. For,

All flesh is like grass, And all its glory like the flower of grass. The grass withers, and the flower falls off, But the Word of the Lord endures forever.
And this is the word which was preached to you.
- 1 Peter 1:23-25
