One-Minute Reflection: Heb 4:12

Audio Reflection

“Indeed, the word of God is living and effective, sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating even between soul and spirit, joints, and marrow, and able to discern reflections and thoughts of the heart.” Heb 4:12

Reflection:

The world is filled with words. Most of them are inconsequential.
They are like the air that we breathe in without noticing.

Some words are inspiring. They move us to action.
Some words bring joy; others bring pain.
They are like jewels that adorn us or rocks that disfigure us.

Then there is the word of God. It is the incense of life
The well of joy that keeps us hydrated in the desert of despair.

His word is intentional. The word of God calls out the fragility of our humanity while revealing the hope of the promise of salvation
