I. Introduction:

A. Jesus came into this world that the lost might be saved (John 3:17).

  1. He taught that the lost might be saved (John 5:34).
  2. The word is written that we might be saved (John 20:30-31).
B. There is a reason why the phrase “word of salvation” (Acts 13:26) was used.
  1. When properly received, the word of our Lord effectually works in those that believe (I Thessalonians 2:13).
  2. By such statements, we don’t want to limit that to just the words of the New Testament (II Timothy 3:14-17).

II. Body: John 6:1-71 (The Points Of *John 6:22-27; 6:48-71).

A. The word is spirit and life (Psalms 119:50, Psalms 119:93, Ephesians 6:17, and I Peter 1:23-25).
  1. The word of God is necessary to give life because sin brings forth spiritual death (Ephesians 2:1).
  2. The word is spirit in that the Holy Spirit was the revealer of those things which we now read (I Corinthians 2:1-13).
B. Obviously, everlasting life comes through hearing the word of God (John 5:24). Yet, the Scriptures are not only beneficial in how to be/remain saved. Consider a FEW benefits provided through the word of God.
  1. Wisdom (Deuteronomy 4:5-6).
  2. Great peace (Psalms 119:165).
  3. Counsel (Psalms 119:24).
  4. Life (Deuteronomy 8:1-3).
  5. Joy and rejoicing (Jeremiah 15:16).
  6. Spiritual growth (I Peter 2:1-2).
C. How do you value the truth, the word of our Lord (Job 23:12, Psalms 1:1-2, Psalms 19:9-11, Psalms 119:103, Psalms 119:127, Luke 10:38-42, etc.)?
  1. Could it be said that you love the truth, the word, the law of the Lord (Psalms 119:97 and Psalms 119:140)?
  2. Why does it matter (II Thessalonians 2:10)?
  3. You cannot love Jesus without loving the truth, the word of God, the Gospel; because He was/is the Word (John 1:1-5, John 1:14, and I John 5:7).

III. Conclusion: As Peter stated, and we should echo: “To whom shall we go?” There is but one record that we whom are save need (I John 5:11-13).
