Hebrews 4:12 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.

The image of that sharp, double-edged sword makes being changed by the word of God sound so brutal…and painful. Here’s an idea to consider about how that sword might be working in you as you read.

Have you ever read a familiar part of Scripture and been surprised to find you see something new and meaningful you’d never seen before?

I think that’s the sword at work cutting up the Word of God into smaller, easier-to-digest pieces for you. Thats how it becomes the nourishment needed to reunite your soul and your spirit. That’s complete renewal that penetrates your bones, your heart and your mind.  That’s God’s Plan Be.

I Wonder… 12/15/15

I wonder…Hanging On
– if  Advent has something to do with God missing interacting with his own creation on a personal level…again?

I wonder…
– if Advent is how we see the reality of “Born Again” as the Son of God is born out of Heaven and into that cradle?

I wonder…
– if the Advent cradle still holds God’s power so when we look again at the birth of Jesus from another year’s vantage point, our faith gets a boost?

I wonder…
– if Advent is God’s promise of annual renewal?
