    35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. Jesus Christ is the Word, therefore we must believe his Word. 6 The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.the Word is Salvation. 23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever. The Word is Alive.

    Ray321; AMEN Brother! How can we get saved without the word of God? How can we continue in His grace without the word of God? Isaiah 8:20 literally translated, says, "To the law and to the testimony, if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no *light (i.e. a dawning; as one up early to a task; URGENCY!) in them." If there's no burning hunger for God's word there's darkness!

    For the wages of sin is death. That means we are going to face death because of sin on our flesh. Paul had the same problem we are facing, our flesh produce sin. Roman 8:24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? By reading the Word and praying to the Father, we can be cleanse from this corrupt body, which is the flesh. Amen

    Ephesians 5:26 26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word. If we have sin in our lives, let the Word of God cleanse us. Let all keep reading the Word and get cleanse.

    Bro Ray 321, you stopped right at the answer to which you need. Read Roman's 8: 10-21. Don't stop at v.10. Your answer is in v.11. You stopped at half the work of grace. Both spirit and body are to be purified to be a child of God, Father, Son, Holy Ghost. He that hath this hope in Him, purifieth himself, even as He is pure.
