God's Word as a Source of Power

It's your turn to look up some scriptures. We are gong to be looking at God's Word and how it is a source of power for our lives.

Hebrews 4:12
God's Word is a dividing power, as a sword. Many times, when I am witnessing, whether it be to family and friends or complete strangers, even though they may seem to agree to disagree, when I declare what the Word of God says, it immediately divides them from me. They become aggressive and defensive, separating their opinions even farther from mine. I think this is mainly because of the next 'power' in God's Word.

James 1:22-25
God's Word is a reflecting power, as a mirror. The Word of God will not just point out your imperfections, but it will make you take a good look at yourself. Most of the time, when we look in the mirror, we do not look at ourselves in the eyes. We look at all the rest of our face or body or clothes, but not into our eyes. If you want to get serious or intimate with someone, you look them in the eyes. Knowing what the Word of God says about our sinful nature, knowing the experience we have had with Him by our sides, stop reading this blog and go to a mirror and LOOK YOURSELF IN THE EYES. I'll wait.

Quite a difference from just looking at your appearance, isn't it?

See you next time.
