The Word

John 1:1-17 In the beginning was the Word….And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us.

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, … it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
The word is actually “ALIVE”…..”Its Alive”….the truth that is set before us in the written Word of God must become a practical part of our lives through personal experience before it is really ours. The Word is to become “flesh” … an experienced reality … within our spiritual life experience as we react to our life circumstance. As we rightly respond in this Garden of life circumstance, the world will see His life manifested through us. Each decision or choice that we make has a higher purpose behind it, which transcends its present effect. It is very important for us to understand this so we might rightly view the results of each step that we take toward spiritual maturity. The multitudes of “choices” that we are forced to make each day of our lives, which do not appear to us as having any eternal purpose or lasting value are viewed by the Lord as most important. From His eternal perspective these many and varied circumstances are purposely placed in our path so as to provoke us to make decisions concerning them. All of these “choices” register in our heart and become “ingredients” that form our “eternal expression”. The Lord is intimately concerned about our “heart reaction” and the choice it provokes because He knows how that will unfold throughout all eternity.
Psalm 119:105 “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
