The Spirit gives Life
The living things on earth are humans, animals and plants. They are alive because they can move and breathe. Those two features are what makes things alive. Words cannot breathe or move yet the Bible states that God’s word is alive.
The first words that God spoke, in the beginning, is, “Let there be light.” These words immediately went forth to carry out His command and light appeared out of nowhere.
The light and the word were the representation of Jesus Christ who is the Son of God. Therefore, the words of the Lord have power and authority and are definitely alive.
It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life. (John 6:63)
