We have started a new series at The Bridge, Route 66. This is a play off of the old highway and the fact that there are 66 books in the bible.
In Life Group tonight, we went over the discussion based questions. On Sunday and tonight, one of the scriptures that we read was Hebrews 4:12-13.
vs 12 reads "For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart."
Stop. Think. Meditate.
The Bible is: Living. Active. Penetrating.
The problem with most Christians is that we read the bible, then we go on our day and forget what we just read. What good is that? When we meditate on scripture, when we memorize scripture, we not only know it with our heads, we let it penetrate into our hearts. And when a situation or temptation comes, we can claim it as truth because it is living and it is active.
