Hewbrews 4:12

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.
This passage is really great for teaching new believers and explaining to them the importance of Scripture. I’ve always wanted to memorize it but just never did, so I’m glad I have it now.

This verse makes me think of a quote I once heard: “I read the Bible to find its faults, but it found mine.” The Bible is dangerous!

If you really read the Bible and compare yourself to it, the only response is to realize how great God is and how depraved we are. The Bible makes me very aware of my faults and how to fix them. The Bible challenges me and has, more than once, cut me very deep. It challenges me to grow in maturity, to draw close to God, and to live my life the way God wants me to.

God bless,
daniel
