Reflecting on God’s Word …

Hebrews 4:12-14 NLT


[12] For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires.

[13] Nothing in all creation is hidden from God. Everything is naked and exposed before his eyes, and he is the one to whom we are accountable.

[14] So then, since we have a great High Priest who has entered heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to what we believe.

Reflection

The Word of God is so powerful it penetrates our thoughts, soul and spirit!

Perhaps that’s why many people don’t want to read it, study or really dig deep to find out what’s in it! It leaves them feeling vulnerable and exposed, and because they don’t want to submit to God and His truth they can’t find grace and forgiveness.

Those who want to hold firmly to their faith read, meditate, study and dig deep into the Scriptures to find nourishment and joy! They find grace and forgiveness in its penetrating power; they find strength for their soul and it refreshes their spirit.
