The Jesus Chasers

How much authority does God's word have over you? Suppose you have a regular physical check-up today. You undress yourself, so the doctor can examine your body. We give much authority to a doctor because we trust their knowledge, skill and experience. For some, God's word is powerful and uncovers everything. These people allow God's word to examine their soul and spirit.  They uncover themselves before God's word. But for some, God's word is just the old saying and basically powerless. They hear it, but they don't understand. They see it, but they don't comprehend. They don't allow God's word to examine their heart and mind. How much authority do you give to God's word?
