…for in Him we live and move and exist, as even some of your own poets have said, 'For we also are His children.'
The very existence of our life is found in Jesus Christ. Because of Him we have life. Jesus is the Word that became flesh, therefore He and the Word are one. To truly live we must allow His Word to work in us. In 2 Timothy 3:16-17 we are told that all scripture is profitable for doctrine, rebuke, correction, and instruction in righteousness so that we may be throughly equipped for every good work (what God has planned for us). We must continually receive DOCTRINE, teaching from the Word of God. As we are taught the Word REBUKE will come, which means to reveal areas of our life that need to change. If we will not turn from rebuke we will then receive CORRECTION from the Word, which is God revealing how to change the areas we are not walking in line with His will. As we make the corrections we are INSTRUCTED IN RIGHTEOUSNESS, which refers to a deeper relationship with God for we were given righteousness (right standing with Him) so we could develop our relationship with God. Letting the Word do it's work in your life is how you truly live, move, and have the kind of life God has for you.
