“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Hebrews 4:12

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

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.

.

– Hebrews 4:12 (NIV)

REFLECTION…

.

Maybe this is why many do not gladly listen to the word of God!

Maybe this is why many prefer to regard it as passé and irrelevant:

because they don’t want to grant God the freedom of their heart.

.

But God’s word is a welcome light for those who receive it gladly,

in the knowledge that it points them in the right direction.

The word of God is life-giving

and, through the work of the Holy Spirit, fills the humble heart

with the incomparable hope and joy that only truth can bring.

.

The word of God is alive and active

– God speaks to us through His word.

.

.

.

QUOTE…

.

"The word of His truth

is hotter and brighter than the sun,

and pierces the very depths of hearts and minds."

.

– St. Justin

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Lord, welcome into my heart.

Cleanse and renew it, and set it on fire with love for You!
