Love The Word

  1. 1. [LOVE THE WORD]
  2. 2. For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. HEBREWS 4:12
  3. 3. [The word] is a sifter and analyzer of the reflections and conceptions of the heart. HEBREWS 4:12, WEUST EXPANDED TRANSLATION
  4. 4. “The Postmodern heartbeat has pumped cynicism through the veins of our culture; we are distrusting of almost everything. There is no truth, no meaning, no certainty. Yet, even in such a distrusting worldview, trust of the self is the one thing that seems to be left unquestioned.” The warning of Dostoevsky no doubt
  5. 5. “The warning of Dostoevsky no doubt explains the contradiction. When God is dead, someone or something will take his place. Someone will always be Lord. Self, interpretation, and taste are currently popular rulers among us, and trusting one’s heart has become the religion of choice.” JILL CARATTINI, RAVI ZACHARIAS INTERNATIONAL MINISTRIES
  6. 6. [The word] is a sifter and analyzer of the reflections and conceptions of the heart. HEBREWS 4:12, WEUST EXPANDED TRANSLATION
  7. 7. “You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; it is these that testify about Me; and you are unwilling to come to Me so that you may have life.” JOHN 5:39-40
  8. 8. [LOVE THE WORD]
  9. 9. “About one third of the world’s 6,900 lang- uages do not have even one verse of God’s Word. That represents nearly 200 million people.” WYCLIFFE BIBLE TRANSLATORS
  10. 10. But these have been written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you may have life in His name. JOHN 20:31
