And the LORD said, "I will cause all my goodness to pass in front of you, and I will proclaim my name, the LORD, in your presence. I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.  Ex 33:19

JESUS IS THE WORD OF GOD!
I'm troubled by something an Episcopal priest said in defending that church's elevation to Bishop, a priest living in what the Bible would call a sinful lifestyle. This priest charged that the Bible was not 'culturally correct." She then said, "We worship the God of the Bible, we don't worship the Bible itself."

This caught my attention because I've heard this many times from Baptist pastors. A while back, a local pastor asked my wife: "Which is more important; that we worship the Jesus revealed in scripture or worship the scripture that reveals Jesus?"

I told her that this "chicken or egg" question seeks to piously separate God and His revealed Word. Generally those who do this are questioning the very authority of scripture and I don't think there's one among us, be they Episcopal, Southern Baptist or anyone else who is sharp enough to divide God and His Word.

Although the Bible is full of scripture that reminds us that God alone is worthy of our worship and praise; have you considered:
Psalm 56:4; "In God I will praise His Word,...
Psalm 56:10; "In God I will praise His Word; in the Lord I will praise His Word."
Psalm 138:2; "...thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name."
Certainly John 1:1 comes to mind. "In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God, and the Word was God, :2, the same was in the beginning with God, :3, all thing were made by Him and without Him was not anything made that was made. :14, And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us..."

1John 5:7 continues, "For there are three that bear record in heaven, The Father, The Word, and The Holy Spirit and these three are one."

Finally, Revelation 19:13 says, "And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and His name is called, THE WORD OF GOD."

Let us stop trying to divide God and His Word. Apart from the Word of God, we can't know God!
James 1:21 says that we "receive the engrafted word which is able to save your souls."
As there is salvation in no other name than "Jesus", it is apparent that Jesus is the Living Word of God. He and His Word are One! So when you hear someone asking if we worship the Word of God or the Jesus revealed in the word of God - Just tell them that we don't have any knives in our drawers sharp enough to separate the two...

This is AuThor with a little thunder...
