The Word of God is not simply a collection of words from God, a vehicle for communicating ideas. It is living, life changing and dynamic as it works in us. With the incisiveness of a surgeon’s knife, God’s Word reveals who we are and what we are not. It penetrates the core of our moral and spiritual life. It discerns what is within us, both good and evil. The demands of God’s Word require decisions. We must not only listen to the Word; we must also let it shape our lives.
Questions for further thought:
1. Have I embraced the forgiveness of my sins through the finished work of Jesus Christ’s suffering, death, and resurrection?
2. If not, what is stopping me from doing that right now?
Challenge: We serve a big God. He is mighty to save and He desires to forgive. Meditate on His Word and consider God’s gracious gift given freely in Christ.
