Over the past few days, I’ve been expanding the scriptures from Matthew. I haven’t been telling cute stories of my life, just giving a lesson from the scriptures and giving examples of how we can use it today. Some of my posts have been received well and others have been ignored. I completely understand because I also respond to topical teaching as well, but at what point are we going to learn to love God’s Word, in and of itself? When will we get to the place where we can open up our Bible and feed on the words? I enjoy reading and studying the Bible; what it brings is more interesting than anything I can tell you about my life, and there is power behind it. My words, though I believe they are guided by the Holy Spirit, because He’s my constant companion, are not living or as sharp as a double edged sword. If you have trouble reading the Bible, pray right now and ask God to help you love His Word.
For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. Hebrews 4:12
