Have you ever picked up something by your hand and startled to find out it was alive? Next time, I bet you’d be careful how you handle it.
The word of God is alive. Matin Luther says: “It has feet, it runs after me; It has hands, it lays hold of me.” If I may add to Martin Luther’s quote below, I’d say…
It has good calories and it fills me up.
It is a fountain drink that satisfies my thirsts.
It is a live feed that I can scroll and be informed.
It is a library that stimulates my intellect.
It is a search engine powered with a quick word.
It is the auto correct that always shows me a higher standard.
It is the pharmacy that has in stock my cure.
It is the weapon of choice that helps me kill sin.
Finally, it is a Person Who makes it all meaningful.
Oh, how thankful I am for this living word, and how diligent I should be in picking it up.
In what ways have you encountered the word recently?
