“The Word Is Light And Life” ( Hebrews 4: 12, HCSB ) by Carley Evans

“For the Word of God is living and effective and sharper than any double-edged sword, penetrating as far as the separation of soul and spirit, joints and marrow. It is able to judge the ideas and thoughts of the heart.”

 

The Word of God tells us that “the Word of God is living and effective!” Why is the Word of God alive? Because “the Word is God.” (John 1: 1) Through the Word of God, “all things are created.” (John 1: 3) “Apart from Him [the Word] not one thing is created.” (John 1: 3)

 

“Life is in Him [the Word], and that life is the light of men.” (John 1: 4)

 

The Word of God is life; it is “the light of men.” The Word of God gives us life and light.

 

The Word of God is “sharper than any double-edged sword.” The Word creates our life in Christ. “It is able to judge the ideas and thoughts of the heart.”

    Carly,
    This is why it is vitally important to get into the Word of God and feed on the Word daily. From John 1:14, “The Word became flesh and dwelt among us”– if we truly understood that, it would revolutionize our lives and the entire world. Jesus was and is a living manifestation of God’s Word. The Word of God created the flesh of Jesus’ body in Mary’s womb. The Word of God created the earth and everything in it. The Word of God created us. The Word of God recreated our human spirit making us into sons of God. The Word of God, given proper attention, authority and action will create the solutions we need to accomplish His will in the earth.
