“I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.” (Psalms 138:2)
God has spoken to man in several ways. God has spoken through the magnificence of creation, revealing His existence and His power to all humanity. God has put His law in the hearts of man and declares to our consciences a knowledge of what He declares to be right and wrong.
But neither conscience nor creation is the greatest revelation of God to man. To fully reveal all that man needed to know, God gave man the scriptures. The Word of God is the greatest communication of God to man.
God’s word is better than creation and conscience, and it is infinitely better than the words of man. The words of men are inconsistent, unreliable, and uncertain. God’s word is perfect. It never changes, it is always true, and it always accomplishes its purpose.
Since God’s word is the greatest, it should be most important to us. We should live according to what God says and not what we think or what anyone else says.
