“At thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore” (Ps. 16:11)
Growing Dominion, Part 10
The Lord Jesus resisted temptation by quoting from the book of Deuteronomy. One of the things he quoted was the famous passage on not living by bread alone. But the passage says more than what we do not live on. Scripture goes on to say that we are to live by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God. Put simply, we are to live in an environment dominated by the Word of God. Scripture is to be the air we breath as we undertake anything. Cornelius Van Til put it well when he said that Scripture was authoritative in everything it addresses, and it addresses everything.
There is no area of our lives where we can go stand and be free from the authority and direction of Scripture. Landscaping, chemistry, physics, medicine, changing diapers, law, backhoe operation, etc. all fall under the lordship of Christ. The kingdom of God is not like a poor cell phone plan that gives you places to go where you don’t have coverage.
