The Sharpness of the Word

My Armory: Chef's, Boning, Utility Knives

For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. – Hebrews 4:12

A gift of knives for Christmas proved to assist in making the cutting of fruits and vegetables much easier as the blades were new and sharp. As I sliced onions, sweet potatoes, celery, carrots, meats and other food, I felt somewhat like a chef on TV who seems to breeze through the cutting process. Sharpness is important to preparation of a meal.

The Word of God is sharp. Not only that, but it is active. We are being prepared to do kingdom work. We are the food being prepared and Jesus is the meal. As God, the master chef, cuts away the portions we don’t need such as pride, envy, jealousy and other disposable characteristics, he also adds wonderful flavorings such as love, mercy, and grace.

The great feast is being prepared. We need to allow the chef to work on us through Scripture so that we can taste good like Jesus (Psalm 34:8). Together, we will make a wonderful meal that will glorify God.

Prayer: Thank you, Lord, for your Word. I pray that I let it work inside of me to prepare me for your great feast. Amen

Faith Tip: Read God’s Word and allow it to work and prepare you for great things.
