For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires. Hebrews 4:12 NLT
Today I don’t want to look at the two-edged sword, I don’t want to look at the innermost thoughts that the word exposes. I want to look at the word that is alive and powerful. This verse speaks about the Logos which is used to express a complete idea and is used in referring to the Holy Scriptures. The complete bible.
The word of God is alive; from the Greek we learn that it is living water, having vital power in itself and passing this on to your soul. “The instructions of the LORD are perfect, reviving the soul.” Psalms 19:7.
The second description in the verse, it is powerful. There are three meanings found and together it is a powerful combination. The words are energetic, active, and effective. The logos word is full of energy, and not only that, it is also active and effective. Energy in itself would not be enough it is activated and moves to where it needs to go and will effectively do what it was purposed to do.
“It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it”. Isaiah 55:11
Reading this makes me absolutely excited about His word!
