Word of God

Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.

Most of the time when I read this verse, I see it as referring to the Word as offensive weapon, with which we can fight spiritual battles.  However, this morning as I read it, I see it a mirror that reveals my own heart and my own intentions.  As we read through the Bible and look for ways to apply what we read, it should reveal things about us, whether good or bad.  We must read the Bible with an open heart, allowing it to penetrate us and find areas of our live that need be confessed and changed.  Sometimes if finds deep rooted sins that must be removed.  Even though it can painful in the short term, we will be better off in the long term.

Open up your heart today and read God’s Word, listen to God’s Word and let it do the work that needs to be done.  Thank You Lord, for your powerful Word.
