Is not my word like fire, declares the LORD, and like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces? (Jeremiah 23:29 ESV)
First, the Word of God becomes a hammer and fire in our hearts … breaking up the hardness and burning away the debris.
Second, the Word of God gives us a voice for truth that can’t be shut up or contained. No matter what opposition or shame we face, we will continue to speak the truth in love.
