Actually no where does Scripture call itself the Word of God
The Word of God is the Son of God
Author: Wayne Jacobsen
Actually no where does Scripture call itself the Word of God. I
know some people get freaked out by this, thinking it devalues
Scripture somehow, but I donít think it does. This is something
Iíve been growing in as well over the last few years and it has been
quite a trip teaching myself not to call Scripture the Word. It
is Scripture. The Word of God is the Son of God . It is
always the Son and he is living and active in our lives dividing
between soul and spirit.
I see Scripture as the words of God, his revelation, a letter from him to clarify who he is and what he is about. But if we only know him through those words, weíve missed the purpose of the words themselvesóto lead us to him. Itís like only reading an authorís book but never having the chance to sit down over a Diet Coke and share life together. This is the book whose author we can always know. I find his words in Scripture and the Word himself to be the most marvelous complement to each other and of great value to this journey.
