Hebrews 4:12: The Scriptures, Elvis and our Heart

Hebrews 4:12 is one of my favorite scriptures. It can be comforting or it can be chilling. It depends on us.

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

I saw the other day where someone at an auction recently paid $94,600 for Elvis’ personal copy of the scriptures! It left me wondering whether that person was more interested in owning a Bible or in owning the Word of God. It left me wondering who was “king” in that person’s life. It left me wondering if they knew that one “king” is dead while the other King still lives and reigns. It left me wondering because I cannot see the thoughts and intents of that person’s heart…but I know what can whether they do or not.
