Vital signs-Sunday May2nd, 2021


For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

(Hebrews 4:12)

 


The Word of God is pulsating with life because it presents a living person: Jesus. The Bible is like a sword, dividing our innermost beings between soul (mind, emotion and will) and spirit (the innermost part of our nature that enables us to know and worship God). The Bible discerns and criticizes. It speaks to us first to convict us of sin and bring us to Jesus—and if we do not adhere to its power, it can condemn us. Once we belong to Jesus, it searches us so that it may set us apart from the world and develop us as God’s children.

The Bible also works against Satan himself. When we face spiritual battles, our only strategy should be pointing the enemy to Scripture. When we go to battle, we must not forget our sword: the Word of God.


• When has Scripture divided your innermost being? Reflect on the influence these moments have had on your life.

• How have you found Scripture helpful to guard against the attacks of Satan? How does regular time in the Word prepare you for these moments?


The Bible is a sword that protects us against our enemy, Satan. Start today memorizing Scriptures that will help you guard against Satan’s attacks.
