LIFE of the word(:12a)

Explanation:(:12a) Alive/Living word of God

:12—“For the word of God is living & powerful, & sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul & spirit, & of joints & marrow, & is a discerner of the thoughts & intents of the heart.”

One’s diligence to enter God’s “rest” is urgent/critical/pressing due to the simple nature of “the word of God,” thru which one is compelled.

The explanation for such critical compulsion comes from the fact that the very written & spoken “word” is indeed from God. As 3:7 declares, it is from the Holy Spirit(God Himself) thru David.

Thus this “word of God” is at once 1) “Living,” 2) “Active”( “powerful”), & 3)Vastly more searching spiritually than even a “two-edged sword” is physically.
