“Is not my word like fire,” declares the LORD, “and like a hammer that breaks a rock in pieces?” For those of you who have gone camping, you know how important a fire is at night. On a cold night it keeps you warm. In the dark it gives light. The smoke chases off the bugs. You can grill hot dogs and marshmallows with fire. You can purify water with fire. It keeps animals away. And it’s also fun just to sit and look at. It’s a very powerful tool. God said, that’s what my word is like! A fire! It’s powerful - it can penetrate your stony soul! It can warm up your cold heart! It can purify you! It can give you light in this dark world! It can distinguish the truth from error! Luther said, If you take the Word away it is like taking the sun away from the earth. If the Word were removed, what would the world be but a hell and a mere realm of Satan, though people of wealth, lawyers, doctors, etc., dwelt in it? For only the Word keeps a joyful conscience, a gracious God, and all of religion, since out of the Word, as from a spring, flows our entire religion.
