The Bible says of itself, that it is “living and powerful, sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of the soul and spirit, and of the joints and the marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart”. (Hebrews 4: 12)
We might wonder how this is so….surely we can take it up and leave it if we don’t like it, and nothing will happen! Here is a story that illustrate the power of God’s Word in this day and age…..
A married couple went to their minister after some years, and said that they were on the point of splitting up…it was no good, it just wasn’t working out. The minster was dismayed at this news, but took heart from the fact that they were at least willing to talk about it to him.
“Are you willing to try an experiment for a couple of weeks?” he asked, “How about you read together chapter thirteen of the first book of Corinthians every night and see if it makes any difference to your feelings at the end of that time?”
They agreed to do this and the minister saw them out the door. At the end of the two weeks, they came back together.
“We’ve come to the conclusion that we’re going to make a new start” they said, “This passage has shown us what true love really is!”
After some more conversation, they left, and over a period of time they proved the truth of the words that….
Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends.
