Gospel Reflection: Hebrews 4: 12-16


Here’s a reflection on the living Word of God.  It comes from Steve Brown’s Worship Ideas You Can Use website.

Gospel Reflection
(inspired, in part, by Hebrews 4:12-16 and Psalm 119)

For the word of God is alive and active.
Sharper than any double-edged sword,
it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow;
it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. – Hebrews 4:12

Hello Bible!
Yes, it’s alive
It speaks to me,
Hear the pure voice
Not like thunder
Like a whisper,
It beckons me
It’s inspired
It draws me near,
Speak to me now
The Living word
Double-edged sword?
Divides soul from
Spirit. Joints from
Marrow.

Hello Bible!
It has quick feet
It pursues me
Chases me down
It lights my path
It catches me
But now I’m free

Hello Bible!
It has strong hands
Powerful grip
Like Praying hands,
Lord, carry me
Bare my burden
The Word made flesh
Grabs hold of me
Kneads and molds me
Potter and clay
It lifts me up
It fills my cup

Hello Bible!
It has appeal
It draws me near
Like a magnet
Spiritual force
Or a mirror
It is faithful
Right, wonderful
Everlasting
Pure Righteousness
Bread from heaven
Take eat, take drink
It makes me think

Hello Bible!
It’s alive!
It lives and grows
Tell the whole world
It’s pure as gold
Tentacles spread
It must be read
