Undergoing Divine Surgery

laryngoscopy consists of a camera with a light on the end to stick down the throat of a patient to try to find the cause of whatever kind of pain they are experiencing.

God's Word is like a laryngoscopy. It invades the unseen areas of our lives, exposing the diseased and damaged spiritual tissue that troubles us. If we're wincing at the thought of how uncomfortable this divine procedure might be, let's consider Jesus' words: "Everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed" (John 3:20).

Internal intrusions may be uncomfortable, but do we really want any deadly spiritual disease caused by sin? The consequences of sin are far reaching (Romans 6:23). Welcoming God's Word to penetrate the deep, dark places of our hearts, is the only way to find true healing and the spiritual health we long for.

Believe me, the procedure will be thorough. As the writer of Hebrews assures us, God's Word is "sharper than any two-edged sword" (Hebrews 4:12); piercing all the way down to our very thoughts, intentions, and motives.

If we are experiencing spiritual pain because of sin in our lives, we may need to consider undergoing a divine operation (Colossians 2:8-13 KJV).

Thankfully, with God's Word, we don't need an appointment. The divine Surgeon is always ready to extricate any and all sin (1 John 1:8-9).
