With knowledge abounding today and Universities growing, many people have conjured up a lot of facts and can spit them out very well. But when it comes to knowing the Bible and teaching others it is much more than knowing the facts. To truly penetrate through people’s hard exterior and into their inner being we must speak with power, and not just any power, but the power of the Holy Spirit!
“For the kingdom of God is not in word but in power.” (1 Corinthians 4:20 NKJV)
We can have all the facts and no power and do little to none for those that are seeking a new relationship with Christ. It is easier to speak all that we know rather than stay connected to the Holy Spirit and allow Him to speak through us. There is no other way in which we can truly touch people’s hearts and lives around us, except that the power of the Holy Spirit reach forth and break through the old man and into their hearts and minds.
“For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged word, 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.” (Hebrews 4:12).
Let us not speak with crafty words like the world, but rather allow the Holy Spirit to speak through us to those around us. Our words can by no means do anything eternally, only by the working and piercing of the power of the Holy Spirit can the saving of souls and transformation of hearts be done. Let us speak no with intriguing complexity, but rather with simple, and yet profound words of truth. By the power of the Holy Spirit we can change the lives of those around us, not by the words of our own craftiness.
