The Word of God is our most powerful weapon against the enemy. Paul calls it the “sword of the Spirit,” in Ephesians 6:17. So what is it about the Bible that makes it a weapon? How do we use it in our daily lives to make sure we protect ourselves from the enemy’s attacks?
Hebrews 4:12 says, “For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires.” His Word is powerful because it is alive. It is not just words from long ago, but it is words that still affect people today and change lives. It cuts to their souls and separates what is good and evil. It makes us vulnerable and exposes who we really are when we begin to recognize our sins.
When we open the Word and really begin to read it, we will see the effect it has not only on our own lives, but also on the lives of others. We will begin to see lives changed because of the truths it brings.
