Taking God at His Word

I bought a copy of Kevin DeYoung’s Taking God at His Word yesterday. I’m in chapter 3 now. This book is simple, clear and helpful.

From chapter 1, here are three questions we should ask ourselves about God’s Word:

1. What Should I Believe about the Word of God?

First, God’s word says what is true.

Second, God’s word demands what is right.

Third, God’s word provides what is good.

2. What Should I Feel about the Word of God?

First, I should delight in it.

Second, I should desire it.

Third, I should depend on it.

3. What Should I Do with the Word of God?

  • Sing the word
  • Speak the word
  • Study the word
  • Store up the word
  • Obey the word
  • Praise God for the word
  • Pray that God would act according to his word
