DAY 24: What is the Word of God like?

Text: 1 Peter 1:23
Memorize: For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it pierces even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow. It judges the thoughts and intentions of the heart. Hebrews 4:12

Scriptures: 1 Peter 1:23; James 1:21; Psalms 119:105; Hebrews 5:12-14; Ephesians 2:20-22;Jeremiah 23:29;Ephesians 6:17;Hebrews 4:12-13

God knows that for us to understand something we often have to relate a new idea to an old idea. The Bible describes itself using a number of metaphors. Those metaphors help us to understand Scriptures in a new way. God’s Word is a seed, a light, food (have you been starving yourself of God’s nourishment – spiritual anorexia?), a foundation, a fire, a hammer, a helmet and a sword.

. When you come to God’s Word, take the time necessary to examine it, to listen and hear it, to hide it in your heart, to ponder it, to hold it firmly, to consider it and to “eat” it. As you deeply reflect on the Scriptures, God will use them in your life to help you to know him and obey him with more depth each day.

HYMN: PASS ME NOT, O GENTLE SAVIOR
