We Need To Live By The Word Of God!

We Need To Live By The Word Of God!

Some have a Bible and say they often read it.

But they live and act like they don't need it.


To many, they think of it as not fact, but fiction.

They live a sinful life, and the truth causes "friction."


Have they thought at all as to what they're doing?

It's not God, but themselves that they are fooling.


We all need to live by God's word for instruction.

We need to seek it daily for a Godly direction.


It is 100 % truth and reminds of God's power within.

We need to know it in our heart,

that we will not sin.


Dad said, "his word have I hidden that I may

not sin against thee."

The word of God is what we need to truly BE FREE!


Isn't it about time that you read and

 know God's word today?

It's one thing to know it, another to trust and OBEY!


It provides an eternal solution for whatever ails you

It's the holy word of God and will never, never fail you!


By Jim Pemberton   (c) 2020



Hebrews 4:12

12 For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.

Psalm 119:11 

11 I have hidden your word in my heart
    that I might not sin against you.

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
