What is the Bible (According to the Bible)?

By Edd Sterchi


    As I was reading Heb. 4:12 the other day, I realized that the Bible was trying to tell me what it is.

For the word of God

The Bible is from God – it is holy, harmonious, and accurate. 

is living

The Bible is alive – it is active and life giving.

and powerful,

The Bible is effective – it can change and benefit our lives.

and sharper than any two-edged sword,

The Bible is “cutting” – it separates right from wrong. 

piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow,

The Bible is penetrating – it can touch us deep in our soul. 

and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

The Bible is evaluating – it is the standard by which we will be judged.
