Everyday Theology: What You Believe Matters

DAY 1 OF 5

Day 1: Living and Active: God’s Word as Hope for Today

As Christians, we believe some hard-to-believe things:

  • We believe that our God is one God in three Persons. 
  • We believe God created the world by speaking it into existence.
  • We believe God’s Son paid for our sin on the cross and was resurrected three days later.
  • We believe that the Bible is God’s Word, and that His Word is ALIVE. Alive. 

Read Hebrews 4:12-13.

Scripture isn’t just words on a page, it is the words of God, able to speak into the lives of ancient readers, as well as ours today. Every verse is like a scalpel in the hands of an able surgeon, opening us up and revealing disobedience, calling us to repentance and correction, thus restoring us to a place of joy and obedience. 

God’s Word is alive, and it will not go out without producing fruit. Scripture that is spoken, read, studied, and lived will affect change and bring a harvest of righteousness. Like rain and snow that fall in winter, the impact of Scripture may not be immediately seen, but spring will certainly come and the results will be made apparent. 

However, life only springs from the ground that’s been watered, cultivated, and tended. The farmer must be intentional about caring for the fields and the crop. Our spiritual lives will wither without consistently seeking the source of our nourishment in God’s Word where He reveals Himself to us. 

Do you ever feel too busy or too tired to spend time in God’s Word? I always regret when I skip reading God’s Word, as I quickly realize that I desperately need it as bread for today. I need to be reminded that I am not hidden from Him and that my heart is exposed to Him. I need to be reminded of the right response of obedience to God’s goodness and kindness found in His Word and overwhelmed again by His love. A minute in His Word is never wasted. His Word holds the hope we need for the day. 

What we believe about God and His Word will drive how we live out our days. May His living and active Word be the truth we rest in today!
