A sharing by Helen Chang for this song:

When I recalled how the Lord Jesus overcame temptations with the perfect word that came from the mouth of Yahweh, I used to wonder just how did he manage to respond immediately with such assurance and wisdom? Later as I came to know more about the relationship between the Lord Jesus and his God and Father Yahweh in heaven, I realised more and more that, in fact, Jesus had been living not by bread alone but by every word that comes from God on a daily basis. Because it’s only in so doing that God’s word could become a real part of the Lord Jesus so that it’s almost natural for him to be able to respond to challenges and needs around him in a manner pleasing to God. Seeing how God’s heart and will are shown through His word, that’s why we need to call on His Name so that His spirit may grant us the insight and grace to obey Him. As such we may be more like Christ, becoming a person whose heart and mind are being conformed to God's will so that others may come to know Him too!
