Any vs All for Life

He answered, “It is written: Man must not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of God. ”

Matthew 4:4 CSB

Did we ever not love God with all our inner and outer resources and did we ever love him with utmost diligence? Did we stone the lying neighbour? Did we worship in Jerusalem three times last year? Have we stayed away from God because we ate a raven?

Every word we never heard

Everything God has ever said includes relevant and irrelevant matters. If I were dead, sick or thirsty, the words that would most interest and benefit me are God’s invitations: believe, come, and drink.

For the bread of God is the one who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.” John 6:33 CSB

Jesus said to them, I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst. John 6:35

Perhaps the absurd proof of life are a better choice: ten things you never did

When our Lord refers to the ten commandments, to show he knows the subject beyond any prophet or angel, he uses the extreme prohibition form over the future (which exposes the probability).

Do not ever / do not even start

not

You shall not

Living by every word never happened unless one is an ocean wave, the sun, the moon, night and day.

When did we ever say amen and follow through like the ocean wave, the sun, the moon, night and day do?
