Living in the Word

Scripture reading

For the word of God is living and active.

–Hebrews 4:12

Thought of the Day

We had an amazing week in Gilmer on our senior high workcamp. Our theme was Living in the Word. I began the week presenting the idea of how cool it would be if towns or cities with cool names actually captured the spirit of that town. For instance, is there Joy in towns named Joy? How about Pride in Pride, Alabama? I challenged the youth to imagine what it would be like to live in a place called Faith. I urged them to visit often a place named Hope. I told them to always figure out how to live in that place called Love. Finally we talked about what it meant to live in Christ and to have Christ live in us.
It probably wouldn’t hurt any of us to wake up every morning and decide to live in the Word. I bet those around us would see a difference in us if we all decided to live each day with faith, hope, and love. I know we would feel the difference if we lived in Christ in all that we do. Try it.


Lord of all creation. I want to live in You. Amen.
