The Knife of God

The Knife of God

The sharpest object you will ever handle is the Word of God.

There’s a reason why the Bible is the world’s bestselling book and why its message changes millions of lives every year. The Bible is God’s Word. The Bible is not a collection of ideas about God that a bunch of people had centuries ago. The Bible is God speaking to you right now. That’s why it’s so powerful and so full of insight. God knows your inner thoughts and has a message of love and hope just for you. God has great plans for you, and just about all of them are contained in His Word (see Jeremiah 29:11).

When you pick up your Bible to read it each day (you are doing that, aren’t you?), handle it with care. It isn’t just a book, it’s a device so sharp and penetrating that it will cut you to the center of your being. The Bible will open you up so God can pour His words into you.

For the word of God is full of living power. It is sharper than the sharpest knife, cutting deep into our innermost thoughts and desires. It exposes us for what we really are. Hebrews 4:12
