The Word [22/365]

In times where we are obsessed with lists of superlatives, I went on a search for the most powerful word in English.
In Hebrews 4:12, we see how the living word of God is both powerful and sufficient for us.

Available in every possible language and version, the Word cleanses us, stripping us of all our iniquities and purifying our thoughts, words and deeds.

Omnipotent and omnipresent. I've often felt that this passage of the scripture is really one of the most poignant examples of what we can call a disclaimer.
Choose to ignore at your own peril.

For the many who refuses to believe how the Word can save you, we see why.
Like a drunken man who stumbles despite light, the Word of God reveals our sins and its consequences.
But for those who take the Word seriously, it is like a standing your ground on a bed of rock in strong currents.

Saying 'No' to sin, admitting that you need 'Help' for your addictions, and 'Yes' to God's Word. Saying you're 'Sorry' for the ugly life you've lived till now and asking God to 'Stop' you for sinning anymore.
Now, that's a powerful beginning.
