Weekend Bible Study


Get More Out of the Bible

Study Passage: Hebrews 4:12-13

God means what he says. What he says goes. His powerful Word is sharp as a surgeon’s scalpel, cutting through everything, whether doubt or defense, laying us open to listen and obey. Nothing and no one is impervious to God’s Word. We can’t get away from it—no matter what.

  1. Reflect on “God means what he says. What he says goes.” What do these two short sentences tell you about your Bible?
  2. Why do you think the translator chose to use the words “sharp as a surgeon’s scalpel”?
  3. How has God cut into your own “doubt and defence”? According to the phrase that follows, what is the purpose of God slicing away your doubts and defences?

Spend Time in Prayer: Reread the study passage slowly and prayerfully; thank God for specific ways his Word has changed you; ask him to reveal areas that need the “surgeon’s scalpel”; express your desire to more consistently “listen and obey.”
