The Word of God is more than just a collection of words forming a book called the Bible. It is a living and active, life changing work that is capable of changing us. Hebrews 4:12 says, 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. God’s Word penetrates to reveal who we are and who we are not. It reveals the core of our moral and spiritual reality. The Word of God is not just meant to be read and remembered, it requires action on our parts to allow it to shape our lives.
