  • The Unique Power of the Word of God
  • Good Exposure
  • Striving for Rest

 Questions for Further Study or Group Discussion:

  1. Read Hebrews 4:11-13. What do we learn about the Word of God from verse 12? Get specific: what is the author trying to teach with the adjectives he uses? How do these make the Word so unique?
  2. Think about the significance of the uniqueness of the Word of God. In what ways are you comforted or encouraged by the uniqueness of the Word? Convicted or challenged?
  3. Verse 13 indicates that the Word “exposes” us. How is this exposure good for us?
  4. Consider the logical progression of verses 11-13. How does verses 12 & 13 connect with verse 11? What are we commanded in verse 11 and how do we go about doing it?
  5. In what ways can you “saturate” yourself in the Word of God in this new year?

Memory Verse of the Week:

Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. (ESV)
