“For the word of God is living 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
I remember watching a weekly television program titled In Search Of… as a child. The series investigated mysteries and phenomena. I would sit engrossed as the existence of UFOs as well as historical events like the Lincoln assassination were examined. It was breezy way to pass time and I always felt like I was learning something new, even though each show began with a disclaimer that the theories expressed were based on conjecture.
One form of media, a perennial bestseller, does not need such a disclaimer. We don’t have to be “in search of” its Author as He is always with us. We only have to accept Him. Every time I study the Bible I don’t just feel I am learning something vital for my existence, I know. The Bible is God’s Word. God’s Word has been tried, tested and proven throughout time. It is unwavering in the face of changing social mores. It is everlasting in a world of passing fads. Don’t take my word for it – study the Word for yourself.
May the Lord be with you.
