This is the 6th Day of International Bible Week. Today’s focus is on the Word of God being sharper than any two-edged sword. Focused from Hebrews 4:12. For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
These verse lets us know that God’s Word, the Bible, is living. One reason as I mentioned in a previous post, are God Breathed. The God Breathed is what makes it living, what also makes it living is our God and Savoir is living. He lives with us, he walks with us, he talks with us. That is why we have a personal relationship with Him.
God Word is sharper than any two-edged sword. God’s Word is the strong Word there is. He can get to the deepest, darkest, hardest spots. It conquers evil. Another reason it is sharp, it hurts when it corrects us. This hurting is to help change us into the Christ like person we need to be.
This piercing goes deep like I said, it goes so far to reach our soul to help correct our soul. Our soul is the part that has the eternal value. Our soul is what makes us in the inside. Heart is the center most part of the body, it has the main function of keeping the body alive. Without a heart beat, we long longer live a fleshly life. Heart pumps the blood and gets it to everywhere it needs. So with it penetrating even the heart, it goes to our core inner person to help change us.
It pierces us so we will walk the way we should, go the path God wants for us to go.
If you are being corrected by this sharp piercing two-edged sword, take it that God loves you and He is correcting you. God loves those who he Corrects. Use this sword also to help rebuke sin.
God’s Word is final. God has the last say. He Word is never changing. His Word has always been and always will. It will endure forever. It is a great treasure. This is part of the Armor of God.
Reading Gods Word daily will sharpen your knowledge and help you grow closer to Him.
