God means what he says. What he says goes. His powerful Word is sharp as a surgeon’s scalpel, cutting through everything, whether doubt or defense, laying us open to listen and obey. Nothing and no one is impervious to God’s Word. We can’t get away from it—no matter what. (Hebrews 4:12-13 MSG)
This week I’ve been thinking about the love of Christ and our journey with Him. It triggered mainly because I know of a strong relationship that turned sour after so many years. Are we taking our love ones for granted? Are we living a life with God but as if He is non-existent?
The Book of Hebrews is indeed written to the Jews who had turned to Christianity but wanted to go back to their old Jewish culture.
Read Heb 4 to 6. It mentioned about how we ought to not turn the word of God null. It is possible that the Word of God become numb in our lives. It is also possible that we crucify Christ again and again to a point where we are not able to get into God’s purpose. Yes, His grace is more than enough for us, His promises is real, but yet if we do not mix it with faith, His promises will never work in our lives.
These 2 chapters also showed us that we should not take grace for granted. Let us move towards deep in His word and not just stay as babes who drink milk. But instead, let us move on towards perfection.
