Hebrews 4:12-13: “For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.” The “word of God” is the measuring stick Christ will use at the judgment. God’s message is alive and active, penetrating the innermost parts of a person. It distinguishes what is natural and what is spiritual, as well as the thoughts and intents of a person. The word of God exposes the natural and spiritual motivations of a believer’s heart. Naked and open suggests complete exposure and defenselessness before God. All believers must give account to the all-seeing, all-knowing God.
