Cut to the Heart

It’s a painful experience to be in a discussion and have a person unintentionally say something which clearly and specifically exposes an area of our lives where we have failed miserably. The speaker probably didn’t mean to hurt us and maybe no one else even perceived how what was said applied to us – but we knew. And we were shaken to the core. While such moments can be awful to endure, they are also healthy because they remind us of who we really are and what we are capable of.

The message of the Bible is described as a two-edged sword which cuts to the very core of our being, revealing how much we need our Savior God. Maybe that’s why so many set aside their Bibles, what they read is just too hurtful to their egos. But the goal of God in giving us his Word is not to beat us down into a senseless humiliation but rather to show us he is the only solution to our natural condition. The truth sometimes hurts, but if that painful truth leads us to the loving arms of our healing God, then we need to hear more of that truth.

Join us for one of our worship services this weekend. Let the Word do its life changing surgery in your heart.

Saturday evening worship: 6:00 pm
