“For the word of God is alive 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.”  (Hebrews 4:12, NIV)

The word of God is alive.  In order for the word of God to grow within us, we must make room for it; we must take time for it; we must nurture it.

The word of God is active.  We see the word of God at work — and wanting to be at work — in our circumstances; leading, guiding, teaching, comforting, correcting.

The word of God is the criterion for good and evil.  The attitude or the thought subjected to its scrutiny will always run true.

To begin any day without the word of God hidden within one’s heart is an invitation to frustration and spiritual defeat.  The disciple of Jesus has the word of God as an alternative to frustration and defeat in spiritual things.  – Luther
