Latest news and 'Thought for the day'
Thought for the Day by Catharine Currell (Families Minister)
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. Hebrew 4:!2
As I saw a bible being held aloft for the press last week it caused me to reflect on our verse for the year from Hebrews 4:12. Many people regard the Bible as a powerful symbol. For some its power is like that of a good-luck charm as if its very presence on a shelf will ensure safety or prosperity. For others, its power is in the artistry of its language.
However, this verse reminds us that God’s word, recorded for us on the pages or screens of our Bibles, has innate and living power. It is not power that we are free to take and use for our own ends, nor is it a source of handy quotes that we can adapt to mean anything. The power of the Bible is the power of God himself.
It is a risky business reading it – it may challenge us, unsettle us or inspire us and, if we are willing, it will definitely change us. Failing to read it is even riskier; to hold the word of God in our hand, or in our homes but ignore the message it contains leaves us without excuse before Almighty God. Let’s be people who love God’s word; who listen to it, obey it and live by it.
