WORD AND SPIRIT
The Spirit of the Lord spoke to me, and His word was on my tongue.
2 Samuel 23:2
There are some things that always go together; a person and her shadow, two sides of a coin; the blades of scissors-and the Spirit of the Lord and the Word of God. It is the Word of God that establishes God's will in the earth, and it is the Spirit of God that enables, illuminates, and empowers that Word.
For instance, when God spoke the world into existence, the Spirit was there. When early Christians were "filled with the Holy Spirit ...they spoke the word of God with with boldness" And the "sword of the Spirit" is "the Word of God." When the Bible exhorts Christians to "be transformed by the renewing of (their) mind" It means learning to think God's way instead of the world's way. It means to replace lies with truth. We do that by reading God's Word, which means the Spirit that gives understanding that leads to changed lives.
Don't neglect the daily reading and study of God's Word. A day missed is transformation delayed.
