Today´s reading:
OT: Deuteronomy 32:28-52
NT: Luke 12:35-59
Ps: Psalm 78:56-64
Pr: Proverbs 12:24

Today´s notable verse:

45 When Moses finished reciting all these words to all Israel, 46 he said to them, "Take to heart all the words I have solemnly declared to you this day, so that you may command your children to obey carefully all the words of this law. 47 They are not just idle words for you—they are your life. By them you will live long in the land you are crossing the Jordan to possess."

Deuteronomy 32:45-47 (NIV)

How true this declaration remains for us today, concerning God's Word! God' Word contains all the truth and wisdom by which we live and find success. Every decision, every temptation, every situation, and every action depends on the Word. The Word is Living, both because it remains applicable to our lives, and also because it is by and through the Word that we live - both figuratively, in the written Word, and literally, as we have new life in Christ the Word-become-flesh.
