How often have you read your Bible and stumbled across a passage that seemed completely new to you, as if it were your first time to ever read it? “I have never seen that scripture before!” Or, have you ever heard God speak to your heart what seemed like words of scripture and later when searching, found them in the Bible?

There are two Greek terms that describe the word of God: logos and rhema. Logos is the entire 66 books of the Bible. It is the entire word of God inspired by the Holy Spirit, penned by men, and forever settled in heaven. “Rhema” is a sliver of the logos spoken to our hearts by the Holy Spirit. It is a word spoken to us by God at just the right moment. Rhema leads us in our decision-making. Rhema teaches us as we grow in Christ. Rhema is how we hear the voice of God.
