February 9, 2020: God's Word - Sharper than a Double-Edged Sword...
“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. " Hebrews 4:12
Like our Master, we must have a balance of prayer and the Word in our worship, walk, witness and work. When we open the Bible, God speaks to us. When we open our hearts in prayer, we speak to God.
Why is the ministry of the Word & prayer so important in this and every other church? Because blessings result only when both are equally balanced in our lives.
“Prayer is a shield to the soul, a sacrifice to God and a scourge to Satan.”
John Bunyan, author Pilgrim’s Progress
