The Word of God discovers our condition

Hebrews 4:11-13

The Word of God is powerful. When you read it, your life will be changed. It is not just an old, dusty book that has no relevance. As you read it, asking the Holy Spirit for revelation, He will speak to you through His Word. He will convict you about your sin and will give you direction about your life.

Joints and Marrow

The three parts of the inside of the bone are the marrow, surrounded by the actual bone cells (which is where the blood cells are) and the outside membrane.

This membrane is a very hard substance and is called the periosteum.

It would be very difficult to slice between the three parts because the three parts are fused together to form the bone. It could be done, but only with the very sharpest knife or tool.

In this passage, the Word of God (ie.the Bible ) is being compared to this, the sharpest of knives with precision cutting abilities.

God knows what He wants to accomplish in our lives and as we meditate on the Word of God He operates on us (spiritually)  with the precision of a surgeon.

Let His Word transform your inner being!

Take a Gospill!

God knows our frailties and our weaknesses and He wants to do a work in our life.

The Bible

dsc_0194It’s World Book today and my children dressed up as characters from their favourite books. I thought I would tell you a bit about my favourite book – the Bible.

The Bible is made up of 66 books. It was written by various men who were inspired by the Holy Spirit. The Bible says Scripture was God-breathed. It is made up of books of the Law, Prophetic books, the Gospels and letters from Paul the apostle, amongst other things. The Bible was written originally in Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek.

My favourite Bible passage is Psalm 139, which talks about God’s perfect knowledge of man. The longest Psalm is Psalm 119, which is about the Word of God.

Luke, a doctor, wrote the Gospel of Luke and he also wrote the Acts of the Apostles.

The apostle Paul, a Jewish convert to Christianity and former killer of Christians, wrote a large proportion of the New Testament. He was imprisoned for preaching the gospel and wrote many of his letters from jail.

If you ask God, He will give you revelation about the Bible, which will help you to understand it. The Holy Spirit will make the Bible clear to you.

There are many different translations of the Bible available to help you.

The Proverbs contain a lot of wisdom to help you in everyday life.

If you read it regularly it will change you!
