The Word of God is not a magic potion. God’s Word goes straight for our hearts, but what happens when it gets there is usually up to us. There’s good reason the Bible describes the Word of God as dividing like a sword (Heb. 4:12). Whenever God’s truth goes forth, it requires a left-or-right turn in every soul it touches. We see examples of this division over and over in the Scriptures. The choice is always there to be made whether we face up to it or not. When we hear God’s Truth, we're forced either to deny ourselves and follow Jesus or to justify ourselves and follow Satan. Well, which one will it be today?
