The Word of God is not merely an assortment of words from God, a vehicle for communicating ideas; it is living, dynamic, and life-changing as it works in us. God’s Word reveals who we are and who we are not. It pierces the centre of our moral and spiritual life. It perceives what is within us, the earnest and sinful. The demands of God’s Word require decisions. We must not only know the Word; we must also let it shape our lives.
