Off. On. There's no gray area here, no fractions. Off. On. On. It is a division that unifies. Your heart bursts with my joy or hangs heavy with my sorrows because of the unequivocable separation that has been made. Our relationship is deepened because of the division and the unique way that it is brought back together – the word.
For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints an marrow; it judges the thoughts an attitudes of the heart.
Hebrews 4:12 (NIV)
The word is the great rejoiner of things divided. But it divides in its own right, separating into On and Off. There is both division and unity in the Word.
