“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” John 1:1-5
The Bible is much more than words on paper. It is the living message of God’s work through the ages. How is the Word of God alive? Because God is the Living Word and God is not dead! If He is the Word and the Word is God, then the words in our Bible are God’s words to us today.
In Him was life, the life of Jesus, and Jesus is the light of men. Everything is connected. The words in our Bible are our light as Jesus is our light!
“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
Bibles aren’t mean to have crisp, unwrinkled pages. The Bible is what God is saying to us. It is our guide through this life. The Living Word penetrates our lives and applies to the different things we go through every day. One scripture that meant one thing to you years ago may bring all new revelation to you today!
Scripture is God-breathed, but you will never hear what He is trying to say to you if you don’t open your Bible and seek His voice. He wants us to love His Word as we love Him. It’s not a novel or a textbook, it is God speaking now!
