The Words of God
For the word of God is living 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).
Reading Scripture is a dangerous habit. The Bible is clear about its content and purpose. Writer after writer claims that these are the very words of God with power to change lives. Isaiah declares that God’s Word will accomplish the purpose for which God gave it.
Jesus claimed to be the Living Word of God who perfectly revealed the Father. Those who read Scripture risk being conformed to the image of Christ, or they risk becoming hardened to God’s voice. How has God’s Word shaped your life?
