The Word Cuts Anyway

Adrian Rogers

When they heard that, they were cut to the heart, and took counsel to slay them.” – Acts 5:33

Suppose you were on the battlefield and someone’s coming at you. You warn him, “Don’t come any further! I’ll shoot!” He answers, “I don’t believe in your gun. As a matter of fact,” he says, “I don’t believe in guns at all.” That’s not going to change anything, is it?

Likewise, the Bible is the Sword of the Spirit. Someone may say, “Well, I don’t believe the Bible.” But it will cut him anyway! The apostles preached the Bible, and when the people heard it, they were cut to the heart. The Word cuts even an unbeliever. It’s a two-edged sword. It cuts to heal, or it cuts to judge. But it will cut—believe it or not.

Before going into battle, soldiers are dedicated to training in the use of their weapons. How foolish to go into battle without training. How familiar are you with your Sword?

God has given you a weapon for spiritual battles…the Sword of the Spirit. In the armor of God, it is the only offensive weapon—the rest are defensive. To have the victory God wants for you, you must see the sharpness of your sword, the Bible, and you must be trained in it.

  1. Or how foolish it is to go to battle trusting in a man (Jesus), rather than G-d.

    It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man

Luke 21:36 "Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man."
