Life Changing - Wednesday, November 4th 2015

Hebrews 4:12

For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

After teaching the Bible verse by verse, week in, week out, for over 14 years, I have seen many lives changed. It is sad to see some lives impacted negatively as people pull away from the Word of God. It is like Jesus told us as he explained the 'Parable of the Sower'....

Matthew 13:20-21 "But he who received the seed on stony places, this is he who hears the word and immediately receives it with joy; yet he has no root in himself, but endures only for a while. For when tribulation or persecution arises because of the word, immediately he stumbles."

What is awesome though, is those who have heard the Word, applied the Word and have been blessed in so many ways.

Matthew 13:23 "But he who received seed on the good ground is he who hears the word and understands it, who indeed bears fruit and produces: some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty." NKJV

Life Lesson: God's Word is life changing, it literally changes lives.

Dear Lord,
Thank you for your life changing Word. Through it's supernatural power I can see how my life has both changed and is changing. Remind me to be in the Word of God every day so I can grow as a Christian. Thank you for The Bridge, Cross the Bridge, and for the devotionals that help me learn the Word of God. In Jesus' Name. Amen.

Living to tell what He died to say,
