With Jesus Christ bringing us the New Covenant, we no longer have to rely on the law. We can study the law hours on end and memorize it from cover to cover, but that in itself will not give us life. The Spirit of God is what brings life to our own soul and spirit. If we have the Spirit of God, we will fulfill the law and all that is fruitful and pleasing to God.
Heavenly Father, we praise you and thank you for Your Word and for Your precious Holy Spirit. We are a blessed people to have the Word of God brought to life by your Holy Spirit. And the life is living within us, your children. Give us more hunger for your Word and openness to the Holy Spirit that gives life and light. In Jesus' name.
Read 2 Corinthians 3:6
"He has made us competent as ministers of a new covenant-- not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life." (NIV)
"Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life." (KJV)
