For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged 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.
God’s word makes:
the proud humble
the perverse meek
the disobedient obedient.
The sinful habits natural to man are interwoven with the daily practice. But the Word cuts away the fleshly lusts. It is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the mind . It divides the joint and the marrow, cutting away the lusts of the flesh, making men and women suffer for their Lord.
