Scripture Reading: Hebrews 4:12-13 - 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. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.
Christians are able to be accountable to God through the means of His Word!
The Word of God is:
1. Alive & Active: fresh, powerful, “energes”=working
a. God’s word changes our lives by teaching us the who, what, when, where, why of life!
b. God’s word gives us more than information, it gives us motivation and power
2. Sharper than anything else in the world!
* It is the preeminent word in our lives, Final word!!!
* It is the prioritized word!
* It pierces our conscience!
3. Means of God’s Accounting: Causes us to be brought right with God
a. Line your life up with what God has shown you to be right according to His word.
b. Make a commitment to treasure the word of God and follow it over the whim and traditions of men.
