The Word is words!

Holy writings, breathed by God
The Word of God! 

               And the Word is words. 

Is it unfair to ask Are we listening to the words of God?  Are we preaching the words?

"If anyone speaks,
                 he should do it as one speaking
                       the very words of God."
                             (1 Peter 4.11 NIV)

Approaching God's word with the respect it commands, with trembling and awe.

Escaping cliches; defeating opinions.

Hearing God's voice -- hearing truth because God spoke, and we were listening.

   "The unfolding of your words gives light;
         it gives understanding to the simple."
                        (Psalms 119:130 NIV)
