‘The Word of God Exerts Power’….

And clothe yourselves with the new personality, which through accurate knowledge is being made new according to the image of the One who created it.

=====================================================

What power God’s word, or message, has!  In a figurative sense, the message emanating from the Bible is sharper than any man-made sword, for it figuratively pierces to the dividing of bones and their marrow. Scriptural truth reaches the innermost part of a person and penetrates his thoughts and emotions, exposing what he really is on the inside. That truth can exert its transforming power and can bring about genuine changes in a person.  Yes, God’s Word can change lives!

Moreover, the Bible is a book of matchless wisdom. It contains helpful information that can show people how to live in this complex world. The Word of God illuminates not only our immediate steps but also the roadway ahead.  It is a tremendous help when we are dealing with problems or are making decisions about our choice of friends, entertainment, employment, dress, and so forth.  Applying the principles found in God’s Word makes it possible for us to get along well with others.

With the road ahead figuratively well-lit, we are able to take into consideration the long-term effects of our decisions.  The Scriptures also foretell God’s purpose for the future, helping us to pursue a lifestyle that is consistent with that purpose.

What a meaningful life a person can enjoy if he allows godly principles to guide his life!

Think, too, of what a powerful weapon the Bible is in our spiritual warfare. Paul called God’s word “the sword of the spirit.” When presented effectively, the Bible’s message can free people from spiritual bondage to Satan. It is a sword that is saving lives instead of destroying them. Should we not strive to wield it skillfully?
