It’s been called the foundation of our civilization, a sacred book, even our guide for life.
Actually, it’s more than that.
Hebrews 4:12 says, “For the word of God is alive 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.”
From ancient times, God decided that He would communicate with humans through language, the written word. He wanted us to have our history and His instructions for living in a form that we wouldn’t forget or lose.
In effect, the Bible is like a mirror we can hold up and look into. Do we see a reflection of Christ? Have we spent time with God in prayer today? Are we helping share the Gospel in our daily walk?
The Word of God is eternal. We can hold it in our hands, and read it and apply it to our lives.
Do yourself a favor and read some of it today!
Lord, thank you for giving us your thoughts, and helping us know you better through your Word. Amen.
