Living and Powerful

Living and Powerful
The Word of God is living and powerful…—Hebrews 4: 12a
Seeds are alive. Because of the unique DNA embedded within seeds, each one is capable of reproducing itself, whether it be from a tree, a vine, or a plant. In Luke 8, when Jesus gave the parable of a man who sowed seed on four different types of soil, He said, “Now the seed is the Word of God.” This means that when you take in the Word of God, it plants itself in your heart and begins to transform you.
**God’s Word begins to change you—from the inside out—into the image of Jesus.
Then the writer of Hebrews said, “It is powerful.” And it is. The power of God’s Word is awesome. In Psalm 33: 6 we read, “By the word of the Lord the heavens were made, and all of the host of them by the breath of His mouth.” Think of that—the whole, vast universe was made by the word of the Lord, by just the breath of His mouth. We read in Genesis, “Then God said, ‘Let there be light’; and there was light.” God created all we see and know by the power of His Word.
The power of God’s Word is evident in the lives it has transformed. People who were once society’s castoffs—men and women who were looked upon as hopeless and worthless—have been changed and healed by the power of God’s Word. By simply taking it in and meditating on the truths of Scripture, depression has been lifted, hearts have been mended, minds have been transformed, and lives have been changed—forever.
Lord, move us to study Your powerful, living Word that it might work in us a glorious transformation. Amen.
