"For the Word of God is alive 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." Hebrews 4:12
As I read this Scripture this morning, I was reminded that God's Word is more than just black and red ink on paper pages bound in a leather cover. The Word of God is real; it is alive and active! Like no other book that has ever been written, God's Word knows me; it penetrates my heart and my mind. Hebrews 4:13 goes on to say, "Nothing in all creation is hidden from God's sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of Him to whom we must give account." God's Word not only speaks to me, it uncovers me before my Creator. I realize who I was without Christ, and now I realize who I am in Christ. Because of His Word, I recognize and take ownership of my sin nature before God; but I also recognize and trust in my Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, because of His Word. The Word of God has changed my life...my past, my present, and my future. No other word or words can ever change a life the way the Word of God can! Have you allowed the Word of God to penetrate your life? Has the Word of God become alive and active in you?
