For we have the living Word of God, which is full of energy, and it pierces more sharply than a two-edged sword. It will even penetrate to the very core of our being where soul and spirit, bone and marrow meet! It interprets and reveals the true thoughts and secret motives of our hearts. – Hebrews 4:12 (TPT)
One morning of my sophomore year of high school, I woke up and went about my morning routine. As I ran to the kitchen, I took a peek at my goldfish. I usually fed both of us breakfast at the same time. As I reached for his food, I noticed something strange. The fish wasn’t moving. Another glance and the bowl, and I realized my fish was dead. His little body was floating upside down in his bowl.
I was pretty upset about my fish. And it made me realize that there’s something to things that are full of life. When my fish was alive, I loved watching it, playing with it. Once my fish died, I was scared to even touch it. It was gross and I even asked my mom to dispose of its body.
When things have life, they’re exciting and fun. That’s how the Bible is. It’s full of life and energy. It speaks to us and helps us in all situations. Sometimes, it brings us comfort if we’re upset. Other times, the Bible shows us areas of weakness and how we can improve.
Overall, the Bible helps us. It’s there to guide us through life and as we spend time in it, it helps us. So today, make reading the Bible a priority in your life. Spend time getting to know Jesus through it. The Bible isn’t a dull lifeless book, but rather a book to help you through every situation you face.
