TOPIC: Alive and Active

TODAY’S READING

Matthew 14:22-33

KEY VERSE: The word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing until it divides soul from spirit, joints from marrow; it is able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. – Hebrews 4:12 (NRSV)

MESSAGE

I took my family to see a musical. After it was over, I asked everyone what they liked most about it. My daughter, who plays piano, said that she liked the songs the best. My other daughter, who likes to read, was intrigued by the story.

My wife, who is a people person, enjoyed watching how the audience reacted to what was happening. They all saw the same musical, but they each were affected by a different aspect of it.

The same is true of the Bible. The Holy Spirit can take any story and speak different things to us depending on what we need to hear at the time. Matthew 14:22-33 is the story of Jesus, and then Peter, walking on the sea. Someone who is going through trials may see how Jesus comes to us in our distress.

Someone who is struggling with doubt may see how Peter did something extraordinary by simply trusting Jesus. And someone who is wondering about prayer may see the effectiveness of Peter’s prayer, “Lord, save me!”

When we read and study the Bible, it is amazing how personal the word of God can be. Through scripture, God speaks to our individual hearts and tells us what we need to hear.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

When I read the Bible, God meets me in the word.

TODAY’S PRAYER

Holy Spirit, create in our hearts a desire to read the Bible and get to know you. Speak to us in our study that we may be inspired, challenged, and transformed. Amen.
