The Word Of God

The "burning-glass" is so formed as to concentrate the sun's rays to a focus, so that their burning power is intensified. The Word of God is both a fire and a glass, it is in fact a burning-glass, it is divine truth concentrated. When it falls, focused on the heart of man, it is irresistible in its influence, it is as a fire in the bones. "The Word of God is quick and powerful" (Heb_4:12), piercing, withering, reviving, consuming.
