“Who also made us sufficient as ministers of the new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.”
Truth without power is deadening and depressing. If all you have is the letter of the law, you don’t have the Spirit. You have the words, but you don’t have the music. That’s a deadening truth. You see, knowledge without transformation avails nothing. All it does is increase your judgment. The Bible says it’d be better for you not to have known the way of righteousness than to know it and then not live by it. (See 2 Peter 2:21.) Maybe we ought to put a sign over the Church doors: “Warning: Attendance may be dangerous to your spiritual health.” It may be. It would be better for you not to hear truth than to hear truth, learn truth, and not act on truth.
Take one step of action today regarding the truth of God’s Word.
