Leaning On The Word

“And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. . . . These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God” (I John 5:11,13).

Our salvation does not find its basis in an emotional experience of the heart, although our emotional tendencies are God-given and not to be denied. Indeed, the salvation experience may be sweet and memorable, but all sorts of religions, non-religions, and cults have emotional experiences, like the Mormon’s “burning of the bosom.” But experiences alone are subjective and easy to be misinterpreted. Our faith should be a faith from the heart, and it should be founded on the written word of God. The third verse of our hymn, “My Faith Has Found A Resting Place,” presents this timeless truth.

My heart is leaning on the Word, the written Word of God, Salvation by my Savior’s name, Salvation thru’ His blood.

The Bible, God’s holy word, is a book about Jesus and how God, through Jesus, deals with man. Much more could have been written: “But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through His name” (John 20:31). “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved” (Acts 4:12). We were redeemed “with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot” (I Peter 1:19).

And this is sufficient! Nothing else need to be done or said or paid! Christ’s blood is enough! His word tells us so.

I need no other argument, I need no other plea, It is enough that Jesus died, And the He died for me. JDM
