The Bible Is the Word of God
How are you coming on your Bible reading challenge? Right on schedule? Fantastic! Slowed down a bit, but still trying? That’s ok, keep at it! Fell behind, got discouraged and quit? Just because you might not be able to read the whole book or you are not going to reach your initial goal, pick up your Bible and keep going. Reading God’s Word is important for your spiritual journey.
“For the Word of God is quick, and powerful,
and sharper than any two-edged sword…”
The Word of God is all-powerful. Satan fears the Word of God. He knows its overcoming power. We must learn to use it against him. It’s an offensive weapon. Many of us study the Bible, but it’s not enough just to study it, we must learn to use it. The Word of God is a sword, and it is meant to be used.
Our Lord Jesus Christ, tempted by Satan in the wilderness, took the Word of God—that sharp two-edged sword—and time after time ran Satan through with it. Jesus said:
“ It is written…. It is written…. It is written…. ”
We can rely on the Word of God!
Sharpen your Sword today. Read the Word. Stay in the Word. Memorize the Word. Begin today. If you only memorize one verse per week, by this time next year you’ll have committed to memory 52 verses! How many will you have memorized if you don’t?
“Thy Word have I hid in my heart.”
