You have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable,
through the living and enduring word of God.
(1 Peter 1:23 NIV)
I know that God’s Word is alive because it gives life. When you first encounter the Word of God, you are dead spiritually. But then it brings you to life and sustains that spiritual life within you. God’s Word has an indescribable vitality that breathes, speaks, pleads, and conquers. It wrestles, smites, comforts, smiles, weeps, sings, and whispers. The eye of this book never dims. The ear of this book never deafens. Its steps never halt. There is never a wrinkle on its brow. It’s always contemporary. It lives!
