2 Corinthians 3

2 Corinthians Chapter 3

“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.”

‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭3:6‬ ‭NIV‬‬

This verse is referencing some differences between Old and New Testaments.  What I want you to understand is that there is a balance between the letter and spirit in our lives!  The letter for me is the written word of God — Bible. So yes, I emphasize reading the word, BUT we must pray as well!! They work together. If a person only reads and never prays, they potentially can become legalistic in my opinion. Remember James and John in Luke 9:51-56. They got mad at people and asked Jesus if they could call fire down from heaven like Elijah did from Old Testament. Jesus rebuked them and said their spirit was wrong!  He said I came to save lives not destroy them. 

So, lets keep filling our minds and hearts with the Word of God, and let’s also set aside time to pray. That means to praise him, thank him, and ask for the guidance of the Holy Spirit in our lives!

Folks , if we keep a proper balance here, we won’t have an ugly, self-righteous spirit!
