Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it
He should strike the nations.
God’s active Word lives because it has inherent energy. When Jesus was arrested, a word from Him forced His adversaries to the ground. In this daily verse, we read that Christ will win His final victory over all opposition with His energetic word. Indeed, the Word of God has an energy that is never without results, for either salvation or judgment. In the same way, if you are listless and lethargic spiritually, it relates to your separation from the living, written Word of God. But ongoing contact with it gives life.
