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)
There’s probably times when you wonder why should I read my Bible? Why does it matter? Its easy to treat God’s word like it’s some positive thoughts for the day, so you read it quick right before bed or on your way out of the house in the morning.
And you do get some good things out of it. But you realize that by the time your 10:30 AM math class starts, you kind have already forgotten what you read in the morning and now you’re concerned whether one of the girls in history class is spreading rumors about you.
The truth about the Bible is that it applies to every part of our lives. It’s not only some encouragement for the morning, but it applies to your friendships, your math class, and your relationships with other people.
The Bible isn’t an ordinary book. It’s a book that’s there to help you understand the things you face. It explains why you’re here and ever issue that you face. But to experience it’s power you have to believe it and get it into your heart.
That sometimes takes some work, but it’s worth it. So today, realize that the Bible applies to everything you face. Spend time getting it into your heart and into your life.
