“…put on the full armor of God…the SWORD OF THE SPIRIT, WHICH IS THE WORD OF GOD.” (Eph. 6:17)
The Word of God is referred to as A SWORD, A WEAPON…
“God’s word is LIVING AND ACTIVE. It is SHARPER THAN ANY TWO-EDGED SWORD and cuts as deep as the place where soul and spirit meet, the place where joints and marrow meet. God’s word judges a person’s thoughts and intentions.” (Heb. 4:12)
The Word of God has life and activity, it “cuts” and “judges” as is necessary for our benefit! The KJV says it is “quick” and “powerful”!
“…The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, THEY HAVE DIVINE POWER TO DEMOLISH STRONGHOLDS. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God…” (2 Corin. 10:3-5)
The Word of God possesses divine power, strong enough to destroy any enemy stronghold…
“There was…the Son of Man among the lamp stands…OUT OF HIS MOUTH CAME A SHARP, TWO-EDGED SWORD.” (Rev. 1:13, 16) “…his name is the Word of God.” (Rev. 19:13)
Therefore, it is so important for us to regularly read the Word of God, because it possess great power to make us effective Christians!!!
HELP US LORD TO HIDE YOUR WORD IN OUR HEART…
