|If we would have freedom in our lives from sin’s dominion, it is necessary that we “continue in [the] Word.” Thus “ye shall know the truth,” and “Thy Word is truth.” To “continue” is to “abide,” to “remain,” to “stay,” to “dwell.” To “continue in My Word” is to “let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom,” for “the entrance of Thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.” So “continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of … the holy Scriptures.” For “the statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes. … More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. Moreover by them is Thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.” Christian reader, how much does the Word of God mean to you? We manifest our love for the Lord by our love for His Word. Can we truthfully say to Him that “Thy testimonies also are my delight, and my counselors”?
