We don’t need to dress up the Word of God with all these different version of the bible, with all of our worldly saying that we deem is so deep, with our quotes of flesh, with ungodly pictures that we shouldn’t be displaying or with inappropriate videos to try and prove our point, etc.
The Word of God (He) is the same yesterday, today and forever more.
Now this is just enough fluff to makes him/her beautiful.
So, don’t get me wrong there is nothing wrong with meeting people where they are, they may be babes that need milk. Some babe may need you to dress them until they can dress themselves. The preacher preaches and adds life points to get the message across, etc. Just enough fluff to make things beautiful.
But sometimes it’s TOO MUCH FLUFF. We feel like we have to use the worldly videos, images, cursing, worldly saying to reach people, when we don’t. Too much fluff changes the Word of God to man’s word. We make the decision as far as how much we need to add to make a point.
The Word of God did not, does not and will not need us to over fluff.
The Word of God did, does and always will stand on its own without fluffing it up to sooth the flesh.
The Word of God, HE is
QUICK (to enjoy life, breathe, to live, to be in full vigour, active, blessed, endless in the kingdom of God)
POWERFUL (active, effectual)
PIERCING (penetrate, to go through)
DIVIDING ASUNDER (partition, a division, a separation)
DISCERNER (relating to judging, fit for judging, skilled in judging)
PURE (refine, to test and prove true, refiner)
The Word of God is Jesus Christ
Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
Proverbs 30:5 Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.
