You study the Scriptures diligently because you think that in them you have eternal life. These are the very Scriptures that testify about me, yet you refuse to come to me to have life.
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. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account. John 5:39-40; Hebrews 4:12-13 NIV

The Word of God is the totality of God’s truth, wisdom and power to set you free, grant you victory over every evil desire, temptation and every kind of oppression in life.

It is also His instrument of releasing to you your Inheritance in Christ Jesus. And God’s Word is always near you and available at all times. But the readiness to receive and adjust to the truth in
God’s Word is what is often absent.

If you desire to encounter God, experience the transforming and wonder working power in the Word of God; you need to cultivate the practice of consistent search of the Scriptures and be convinced that God wants to reveal Himself to you through His Word.

Neglecting the Scriptures indicates a lack of interest in receiving God’s truth. And there is no safest place in this world other than where you are covered by God’s truth. May the Lord this day help your heart to be opened and receptive both to hear and do what He says to you in His Word. Good morning and do have a glorious worship experience.

Your brother,
