The Power of The Word
“For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” (Hebrews 4:12)
Today’s Morsel: Albert Barns states about this word, “Mighty: Its power is seen in awakening the conscience; alarming the fears; laying bare the secret feelings of the heart, and causing the sinner to tremble with the apprehension of the coming judgment. All the great changes in the moral world for the better, have been caused by the power of truth. They are such as the truth in its own nature is suited to effect, and if we may judge of its power by the greatness of the revolutions produced, no words can over-estimate the might of the truth which God has revealed.” When we understand that Jesus Christ has all power (Matthew 28:18), and that He is the Word made flesh (John 1:1,14), we can understand why the Word of God is so quick and powerful and can change any life or situation. There is nothing more powerful or mighty than Jesus. Just the mention of His name and mountains will move.
Sing: What can wash away my sin? Nothing but the blood of Jesus. What can make me whole again? Nothing but the blood of Jesus. O’ precious is the flow, that makes me white as snow, no other fount I know, nothing but the blood of Jesus.
