Some say that while Jesus Christ was upon earth there was power in what He had to say, but “all we have now is the written Word.”
Does the mere fact that God’s Word has been written rather than spoken reduce its force or influence?
Do we regard our oral words more sacred and binding than our written documents? Are our deeds, mortgages, government bonds, and securities rendered valueless because they have been written? Should we shut down the county court clerk’s office and the recorder’s office and do business by word of mouth? Of course not.
The Savior understood that there is power in the written Word of God. It ought to be considered as having enough power and force for the accomplishment of that which God intended—the salvation of souls.
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation.” Romans 1:16
