The Implanted Word
Therefore put away all filthiness and rampant wickedness and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls. (James 1:21 ESV)
The Bible says that the blood of Jesus saves and here we can see another kind of salvation by the word of God. This means that even though the blood of Jesus has saved us and still saves us, if we reject the word of God that points us towards dependence on the blood of Jesus, praise, thanksgiving, worship, prayer and obedience, our souls will die from lack of faith and nourishment.
The word of God is the water, food and meat that nourishes, builds up and strengthens the soul. Without the word of God, we are finished and faith will become impossible. What do we base faith on? The word of a God.
So it is vital to accept the precious word that saves and transforms the soul.
