“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
It’s important to read the Bible. But you can read the Bible in more than one way. It can be read as history, literature, geography, even entertainment! Some of those Old Testament stories had more drama than some reality shows!
But it is when we read the Bible as a living document that is applicable to everyday life that we really gain the benefits God’s word offers. We can apply his grace that is sufficient to everyday problems. We can access his peace that surpasses all understanding when trying times come.
God’s word is meant to come alive as we read it. And in turn, we too come alive with hope, wisdom and direction.
