The word for this week’s Five Minute Friday is “Alive.” **Make sure to click on the image above to check out some other great posts from the linkup** Here goes:
When I hear this word one thing that come to mind is the first part of 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.”
Therefore, it is not shut up in a book, applicable only when we open it. No, this verse says God’s Word is ALIVE and ACTIVE in our lives! I believe this is good news for us to hear.
One way I have seen this recently is by going back and looking at the Bible verses God gave me at different times in my life that are especially meaningful to me. I wrote a post about each one during Write31Days last October.
I finally got around to putting links to all those posts on a chronological list in a new page on my blog. Check it out at “My Life Verses” here or on my sidebar anytime. It was fun to go back and re-read my old posts, as well as look back at God’s hand in my life from childhood until now!
