“For the word of God is . . . sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating even to the dividing of soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitude of the heart.” (Hebrew 4:12b)
Destructive thoughts and negative attitudes cannot exist in a vacuum. They thrive only as they are nursed and nurtured in the dark recesses of our own hearts where we excuse and justify their existence while blaming others or circumstance for their presence. As a result, we are unaware they’ve become a cancerous sin metastasizing into our souls.
With laser-like precision, our Great Physician uses His Word to penetrate into the deepest layers of our hearts exposing even our darkest thoughts and attitudes. He then removes them and replaces the cancer with the character of Christ. Let God perform open-heart surgery on you today; open His Word.
