God uses His Word and its proclamation to birth and sustains His church. Every believer needs the regular teaching of God's Word.  

Psalm 1 Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; [2] but his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law, he meditates day and night. [3] He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers. [4] The wicked are not so, but are like chaff that the wind drives away. [5] Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous; [6] for the LORD knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish. (ESV)

Colossians 3:16–17 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. [17] And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. (ESV)

The Gospel of John, Life In God

Let me say first, that as we proceed to look into these verses we step out of the realm of time, and back into eternity past. Hence we step out the realm of finite understanding. Yet God, through the apostle John has seen fit to give us a glimpse of the eternal, blissful fellowship of the Triune God. The great nineteenth-century Baptist, biblical expositor Alexander MacLaren expressed the wonder that should fill our minds as we read this portion of Scripture, “The Gospels begin with Bethlehem; John begins with ‘the bosom of the Father.’ Luke dates his narrative by Roman emperors and Jewish high priests; John dates him ‘in the beginning.’ To attempt an adequate exposition of these verses in our narrow limits is absurd; we can only note the salient points of this, the most profound page in the New Testament.”
