1 Kings 13:1-32; Jeremiah 23:1-40; Colossians 1:21-2:7

To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to
this word, it is because there is no light in them. Isaiah 8:20
I am the light of the world. John 9:5

When one speaks according to God’s Word, light emanates from
what is said. To speak the whole counsel of God is to bring light
into darkness. Preaching like that brings such help to God’s people
and preaching like that can’t help but focus on our Saviour. Jesus is
Light and Truth and Life, (John 14:6). The Scriptures are God’s full
proclamation of Himself and His beloved Son (2 Tim. 2:15). May
we preach them faithfully and obey them fully. —Annette Baal

How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord,
Is laid for your faith, in His excellent Word!
What more can He say than to you He hath said,
Who unto the Saviour, for refuge have fled? —J. Rippon
