In the past blog posts, we’ve learned about who God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are. We’ve learned about who we are, and who God created us to be. We’ve learned about why Jesus came on earth and why we should come to Jesus. If you missed any of those blog posts, you can always check them Here. By now we should have a general understanding about God. Now it’s time to go more in depth. Let’s talk about the word of God.
The word of God is written in the book called Bible. According to 2nd Timothy 3:16, the words from the Bible are breathed out by God. And it is useful for teaching, rebuking, correction and for training in righteousness. The word of God is a lamp to our feet and a light to our path (Psalm 119:105 ESV). Meaning that the word of God is to guide us and to show us our path. The word of God is also “alive and active, sharper than any double-edged sword” (Hebrews 4:12 NIV). It means exactly what it says, once we start meditating, reading and studying the word of God, it will be alive and active within us. And the word of God is so powerful that it is sharper than any sword.
Furthermore, the word of God “penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart” (Hebrews 4:12 NIV). Once we get connected to the word of God, it has the utmost power to dissect our soul, spirit, attitude and heart. And it has the ability to correct us. The word of God is right and true (Psalms 33:4). The word of God is full of Spirit and life (John 6:63). The word of God is also flawless (Psalms 18:30). Meaning that the word of God is perfect. And countless of other great things.
Now, you might be wondering what to do with the word of God. We’ll talk about that more next week. This week, let’s focus on learning more about the word of God which you can find in the book called Bible. Let’s purchase a book if you don’t already have one, or download the Bible app from your app store. You’ll find many versions of the Bible, like the NIV, ESV KJV, etc. Feel free to pick whichever version you like, just make sure it’s a true version of the Bible. Each day this week pick a book from the Bible to read, it will help you familiarize with the type of language that is written in there. Keep in mind most of the books in the Bible are long, so it might take you this entire week to finish a book or just a chapter. But that’s perfectly fine, as long as you’re reading the word of God everyday. We’ll meet here again next week to continue on with our topic. Have a bless productive week!
Say this prayer with me:
Lord Father God, I dedicate my week to you. Guide my steps and clear my paths. Help me to better understand your word. Give me intelligence and wisdom so I can understand your word that I will be reading everyday this week. Into your mighty hands I lay my week and my entire life. In the name of Jesus I pray! Amen!
