The Word of God is quick, powerful, sharper than any twoedged sword, dividing asunder soul and spirit, and the joints and marrow and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Our heart is who we are. It is our mind, will and intellect. The Word of God is writing and spoken. But more than that it is Jesus. He is the Word of God. Since the beginning of time, Jesus is the one who spoke to man. He gave to man the written word of God. Jesus did this so man would have a reference to guide him in life. He did this because man refused to keep the knowledge of God in his mind and heart.
John 3:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
The best example of this is Judas, when Jesus and the disciples were at supper in Bethany. When all the men sat for supper, Mary, Lazarus’ sister, came with a bottle of spikenard. It is a spice used to bury someone. She anointed Jesus’ head and feet. She washed His feet with her hair. Judas Iscariot objected. He said we should sell the spice and give the money to the poor. But what Judas wanted to do is sell the spice and keep the money. Judas was the treasurer for Jesus and the disciples. Jesus said to leave the woman alone. She will be remembered for all times for she anointed Jesus from her heart.
All throughout the scriptures, God has always looked upon the heart of man. God knows that what is in the heart, is who the man is. Man cannot hide from God what is in their heart. From the beginning, God told each person to teach their children about God. This was for each person to have the knowledge of God in their lives. All throughout time, God has instructed man about the knowledge of God.
God has always tried the hearts and minds of man. Either you are for God or against Him. There is no in-between. If you do not choose God, you are against Him. Jesus said it Himself. That man loves darkness rather than light because their deeds are evil. What God is looking for is a relationship with each person.
God is calling us to sacrifice ourselves just like Jesus. So that God can resurrect us to life. Yes, we must die to ourselves, so Jesus can live through us in this world.
