God’s Word Is
Alive and Active

“But when He was alone, those around Him and the twelve
asked Him about the parable. And He said to them,
'To you it has been given to know the mystery
of the kingdom of God; but to those who are outside,
all things come in parables.'”

Mark 4:10-11

When children learn to read, they have to go over each word and pay close attention many, many times in order to comprehend the meaning. This is exactly what Jesus did with His disciples to make His teachings alive and active in their hearts and mind so that they could completely understand His words to later go forth and preach the gospel. Like the apostles, we also need to pay close attention to His Word.

God’s Word is indeed alive and it is vitally important to understand this as Christians because the Word of God has POWER that we can apply for His purpose when understand it and speak it out. But before we can do that, just like children trying to comprehend words, we need to internalize what He is telling us:

“ My son, give attention to my words;
Incline your ear to my sayings.
Do not let them depart from your eye;
Keep them in the midst of your heart;
For they are life to those who find them,
And health to all their flesh.“

Proverbs 4:20

It doesn’t matter whether you are new in the scriptures or have read the Bible for 50 years because the key is to spend time reading and meditating upon His scriptures and “...Keep them in the midst of your heart.” The more time we spend in His Word, the more we come to realize that we have been given the most important, powerful, divine and living book ever written. The Word of God will not only guide, direct and transform you into the likeness of Christ, but will come alive and activate your very being!

My dear friend, trust in the Lord and put all your faith in Him, not just some of it, because that’s not what God wants from you. He wants ALL of you and it happens when you let His Words sink deep down inside your being. Desire to know the Lord more than anything in this world which is quickly passing away. Read His Word every day – when you awake first thing in the morning and immediately before you go to sleep. When you do you will be amazed at the wonderful, amazing transformation God will do start to begin in your life.

“I have declared my ways, and You answered me;
Teach me Your statutes.
Make me to understand the way of Your precepts;
so shall I meditate on Your wonderful works.”

Psalm 119:26-27
