- Scripture Passage Being Examined:
- "Indeed, the word of God is living and effective, sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating even between soul and spirit, joints and marrow, and able to discern reflections and thoughts of the heart. No creature is concealed from him, but everything is naked and exposed to the eyes of him to whom we must render an account." (Hebrews 4:12-13)
- Commentary On Hebrews 4:12-13:
-In short, this beautiful passage of the Bible testifies to the infinite power of God. It is saying that God's words will not return to Him void. He can accomplish anything that He wills. Nothing is impossible for Him. Thus the words of God are described in Hebrews 4:12-13 as being sharper than any double-edged sword because they are able to penetrate to the innermost part of the human being, the soul. They slash directly through every physical component of the human body. In other words, God reveals every thought and intention of our hearts that are concealed from the visible sight of other people. His Words pierce directly through the natural realm into the supernatural realm. Every good or evil incentive that is currently hidden within the chamber of the human conscience is visible to God. Nothing can be hidden from Him. He knows everything. He is present everywhere. We will eventually have to give account to God for all of our deeds. So we need to be cautious of our thoughts and actions daily to ensure that they remain in accordance to His divine will.
