Blessed Sunday morning to you! 4/11/21

May your day be filled with joy and love and the peace that passes all understanding. Get your Word in today!

Heb 4:12  For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Hebrews 4:11-16
There is no escape for disobedience and unbelief, because we have to do with the omniscience of God. The conception of Heb 4:12-13 is of a victim appointed for sacrifice and thrown upon its back, that the keen edge of the knife may do its work more readily. The divine scrutiny is still sharper. There is so much of the soul in what we do, that is, of our opinions and activities. God distinguishes between these and those promptings of His Spirit which are really important and influential. Only what is born of the Spirit will stand the test of eternity!
Shall we not fail in that scrutiny? Will he not detect in us that evil heart of unbelief? We need not fear; because our High Priest has passed the veil that hides the invisible and eternal and has entered the divine presence. “Mercy and grace to help in time of need!” These will meet our supreme needs-mercy for our sins, grace for our helplessness and frailty.
