Ready “For the word of God is living and effective and sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating as far as to divide soul, spirit, joints, and marrow; it is a judge of the ideas and thoughts of the heart.” - Hebrews 4:12
Set A wide receiver or running back must make crisp cuts when running a route or hitting the hole. A soccer player needs to make crisp cuts when passing or dribbling. Basketball players must make quick, sure, crisp cuts when running plays or making moves to the hoop. The word “crisp” has been defined as “notably sharp and clean-cut.” Should these athletes round their cuts, they would lose the ability to apply a successful move on their opponent. The authors of Hebrews knew that God is living and powerful and that His Word is sharper than a two-edged sword. Being sharp is the same as being crisp. If a football, soccer or basketball player makes slow, sloppy cuts on the playing field or court, then they are lessening their chances of being successful. The same principle applies to our spiritual lives. It is important that in our daily Christian walk, we stay sharp and crisp so that we can increase our spiritual effectiveness. Today, don’t round your spiritual cuts. Stay in the Word, be faithful in prayer and do as the Lord commands.
Go 1. Do you tend to get sloppy on the court or field and round your cuts? 2. How do you take spiritual short cuts? 3. How can you stay focused and sharp spiritually?
