7 Metaphors for the Word of God

1. The Word of God is a sword that pierces (Hebrews 4:12).

2. The Word of God is a mirror that reveals (James 1:23).

3. The Word of God is a seed that germinates (1 Peter 1:23).

4. The Word of God is milk that nourishes (1 Peter 2, 3).

5. The Word of God is a lamp that shines (Psalm 119:105).

6. The Word of God is a fire that consumes (Jeremiah 23:29).

7. The Word of God is a hammer that shatters (Jeremiah 23:29).

These 7 ‘The Word of God is…’ statements were the main points of Dr. Steven Lawson’s presentation at the 2015 Shepherd’s Conference hosted by John MacArthur at The Masters Seminary in Santa Clara, California. I leave it to you to examine the passages of scripture annotated with the ‘7 metaphors’. Dr. Lawson’s presentation included much more scripture and I encourage you to watch his entire presentation.

This year’s conference was devoted to the inerrancy of Scripture. As mentioned in an earlier blog post, the Domain of Truth blog has done us a favor and provided links to both the General Session videos and audio from the breakout sessions:
