Thursday: A Cutting Open
There is a powerful tension in this scripture, and it may be worth approaching it with caution. As you pray this scripture today, what feelings, thoughts, or messages arise?
“God’s word is alive and working and is sharper than a double-edged sword. It cuts all the way into us, where the soul and the spirit are joined, to the center of our joints and bones. And it judges the thoughts and feelings in our hearts. Nothing in all the world can be hidden from God. Everything is clear and lies open before him, and to him we must explain the way we have lived.” Hebrews 4:12-13, New Century Version (NCV)
