For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.(Hebrews 4:12, NASB)

“Some of God’s children lay great emphasis on rightly dividing the word of truth. Indeed Scripture itself tells us we are to do this (2 Timothy 2:15), but it also tells us His Word is to divide us. Where we may be wrong is in seeking to divide His Word first, before we have allowed it to do its work on us! … Does it deal with us like a sharp, two-edged sword? Or do we handle it as though it were just one more book to be studied and analyzed?

The strange thing about Scripture is that it does not aim to make us understand doctrines in a systematic way … He wants to preserve men from merely getting hold of doctrines. He wants His truth to get hold of them.”

(from A Table in the Wilderness by Watchman Nee, August 13th)
