Bonhoeffer: the word stands

Friday, September 9, 2011
    For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
    —Hebrews 4:12 (NIV)
    Do not try to make the Bible relevant. Its relevance is axiomatic... Do not defend God’s word, but testify to it... Trust to the Word. It is a ship loaded to the very limits of her capacity.
    ... Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906-1945), Dietrich Bonhoeffer: a biography, Eberhard Bethge, Fortress Press, 2000, p. 442 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your church is thankful for the riches of Your word.
