Verse of the Day (October 27, 2019)

Verse of the Day (October 27, 2019) #BMSeminary – Happy Lord’s Day! This is one of many exhortations in Hebrews to continue in faith and obedience until the culmination of our salvation (“to enter that rest”; v. 11). Next the writer speaks of the Word of God. He describes it as dynamic, powerful, “sharp,” cutting, and able to read our hearts (v. 12). These descriptions point to the fact that God uses his Word to reveal unbelief and disobedience lurking in our hearts. All things are transparent to God; no one can hide from him (v. 13). He uses his living and piercing Word to search us deep within and to show us “thoughts and intentions” that are displeasing to him. Let us avail ourselves of this vital ministry of Scripture (cf. Ps. 19:11–14) through Bible reading, Bible study, and church attendance that deepens our understanding of God’s Word. God gives us what we need if we use his means of grace. (Gospel Transformtion Study Bible)
