Every July in Pamplona, 200 to 300 people go to the hospital for contusions and falling injuries. It is the famous “running of the bulls.”
How would it be to stand in that narrow Spanish street, seeing the stampede come at you? There are only two choices: you hide, or you join.
That’s what God’s word is like to us. Hebrews 4:12 calls it a double-edged sword, quick and powerful.
As Christians, we face a choice: will we dodge the oncoming force of the character of God? Will we miss the whole frightening thing, or will we choose to place ourselves directly in its path?
