Double-Edged Sword

“For the Word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart”. (Hebrews 4:12) God gives us His Read more…

“For the Word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart”. (Hebrews 4:12) God gives us His Word as a Sword – not a sword to use against others, but a sword that judges our own thoughts and the attitudes of our own hearts. A Christian can never be untouched by the Word – it changes your life if you are willing to obey it. Perhaps this is one of the reasons why we are hesitant to become quiet with the Word, in the presence of God. To become quiet with God’s Word requires you to empty yourself, to get rid of the sins, to forsake wrong deeds and to nurture a different attitude towards the people you don’t like. In other words, you are required to open yourself to the Word and to allow God’s Word to change you into a new person. When you are empty of yourself, God’s Word can fill you with new Wisdom and Insight and inject hope and joy into your life. This hope and joy do not depend on your physical circumstances; it will never be taken away from you and will fill you anew with courage for the road ahead. God’s Word is indeed the Sword of the Spirit. “And take the helmet of Salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.” (Ephesians 6:17) Prayer for Today – “Lord, empty me of myself so that I can open myself to Your Word. Let Your Word change me into the person that you intended me to be in Jesus Name, Amen”. – Faith Centre International

Bible Gateway Luke 2:52 And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man. Nearly every time an angel appears in the Bible, his first words are, “Don’t be afraid!” Little wonder. When the supernatural makes contact with planet Earth, the human observers usually end up flat on their faces in fear. But Luke tells of God appearing in a form that does not frighten. In Jesus, born in a barn and laid in a feeding trough, God uses a mode of approach that causes no fear. What could be less scary than a newborn baby? Imagine becoming a baby again: giving up language and muscle coordination and the ability to eat solid food and control your bladder. That gives a mere hint of the “emptying” that Jesus chooses to undergo. Both God and Man According to the Bible, Jesus is both God and man. As God, he works miracles, forgives sins, conquers death and predicts the future. As he does all these things, Jesus evokes awe in the people around him. But for Jews, accustomed to seeing God in a bright cloud or a pillar of fire, Jesus also causes much confusion. How could a baby in Bethlehem, a carpenter’s son, a man from Nazareth, be God? Jesus’ skin gets in the way. All through his life—and even today—Jesus Christ remains a puzzling figure for skeptics. God could have made His identity more smashingly obvious, but He chose not to. What does God gain by coming in “disguise”? Why does God empty himself and take on human form? The Bible gives many reasons, some densely theological and some quite practical. Luke’s story of Jesus as an adolescent in the temple (see Luke 2:41–50) gives one clue. For the first time, ordinary people can hold a conversation, a debate, with God in visible form. Jesus Christ can talk to anyone—His parents, a rabbi, a poor widow—without first having to announce, “Don’t be afraid!” In Jesus, God comes close.

“But now listen, O Jacob, My servant, Israel, whom I have chosen. 2 Thus says the Lord, Who made you and formed you from the womb, who will help you.” (Isaiah 44:1 – 2) God chose Israel out of all the nations to be His special people and to establish a covenant with them. He promised to be their God and to take care of them. All that He asked in return is that they keep the covenant and obey and love Him (Genesis 17:7-9). But they often failed to do so. Time and again they deserted God to worship idols, even though He remained faithful to them and forgave them every time. When you become a Christian, it means that God destined you to be His child, even before He created the world. It is always God who takes the initiative: “Before I was born the Lord called me; from my birth He has made mention of my name,” the prophet Isaiah says in (Isaiah 49:1). Paul writes that God has chosen His children, “in Him before the creation of the world to be Holy and blameless in His sight.” (Ephesians 1:4) God chose you long ago, even before you were born, and invited you to belong to Him. Faith is believing God and accepting His invitation. So remember, God chose you for His special plan and purposes. As you yield, you will see it unfold. Prayer – “Heavenly Father, it is wonderful that You chose me to belong to You even before I was born. Thank You that I was able to accept Your invitation in Jesus Name, Amen”. – Faith Centre International
