Feeding on the Word

“Man is what he eats” was Feuerbach’s aphorism. By feeding on the word of God, the believer is changed according to God’s character.

Worship and the Word

Scripture should constitute the very content for much of what we say, sing, and pray in worship. When this is the case, Scripture permeates the service from beginning to end. Scripture forms the basis for all of worship.

REFORMATION 500: Sola Scriptura

I am a creature of a day, passing through life as an arrow through the air. I am a spirit come from God, and returning to God: Just hovering over the great gulf; till, a few moments hence, I am no more seen; I drop into an unchangeable eternity! I want to know one thing—the way to heaven; how to land safe on that happy shore. God himself has condescended to teach the way: For this very end he came from heaven. He hath written it down in a book. O give me that book! At any price, give me the book of God! I have it: Here is knowledge enough for me. Let me be homo unius libri. [A man of one book.]

—John Wesley
