Hebrews 4:12 ESV
The word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.———————————————-
As the words of the Bible are communicated through people reading it—or hearing it read and preached—it becomes active and alive in those who receive it.
It is alive and active for conditioning our hearts to love God and for empowering us to live out God’s will. Therefore, we must eagerly open our hearts to the word of God.
