The Word Of God

For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Hebrew 4:12

The word of God is life changing in power! It is unarguable, unstoppable, inexhaustable, undeniable... it is also inexcusably simple! How can you argue against the truth of God’s word? No argument formed against it will stand! How can you extinguish it? For it is eternal! How can we sound out the height, breadth and depth of its wisdom? No finite mind can comprehend God’s word in great detail, yet the smallest detail can radically transform a finite mind! How can we deny it? For we see the evidence of its abiding fruit in the life of those who not only hear it, but practice it! How can we claim ignorance of its demands, or assert that it is beyond the capacity of our own understanding? For we have been commanded to receive it as little children!

Amen!

One thing is for certain: The importance of the Word cannot be overstated.

I became saved shortly after I received my first Bible. The power and authority of the Word stunned me.

This is something I've been thinking about lately. In sharing our faith, I think we must be very careful to not leave out the Word of God. It never comes back to Him without accomplishing its purpose.

Amen! The Word of truth is essential!

James 1:18 He chose to give us birth through the word of truth!

Psalm 119:130 The unfolding of your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple.

We cannot neglect the Word - in our own lives or in ministering to others! We cannot be saved apart from it – and we cannot remain the same under it!
