There are quite a few metaphors for God’s Word found throughout Scripture. Just a glance through the list below reminds us of the value of God’s Word in our daily lives…

God’s Word is… FOOD – 1 Peter 2:2, Heb 5:12-14

God’s Word is… SEED – 1 Peter 1:23

God’s Word is… TRUTH – John 17:17

God’s Word is… MIRROR – James 1:23-25

God’s Word is… LIGHT – Psalm 119:105

God’s Word is… FIRE – Jeremiah 5:14

God’s Word is… SWORD – Hebrews 4:12

God’s Word is… HAMMER – Jeremiah 23:29

Among the hundreds of descriptions of God’s Word, one of my favorite comes from Hebrews 4.

For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.

Hebrews 4:12 (ESV)

Living and active is what God’s Word is and that’s what we can be when we’re in God’s Word and it’s in us.

Have you gotten into God’s Word today?

More importantly, has God’s Word gotten into you today?
