Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom.
In April 1866, crates of nitroglycerin were shipped to California to aid in blasting through a mountain to create the Summit Tunnel. One of the crates exploded at the Wells Fargo office in San Francisco, killing fifteen people. Nitroglycerin is an effective explosive, but highly unstable. Yet in another form it’s an effective treatment for heart disease and one of the oldest drugs used in the prevention of heart attacks. What power is unleashed when two elements — nitric acid and glycerin — come together!
When the Holy Spirit and the Holy Bible combine in a believer’s mind, there’s an explosion of power, and the mixture somehow strengthens our hearts. Ephesians 5:18 tells us to “be filled with the Spirit.” Colossians 3:16 says to “let the Word of Christ dwell in [us] richly.” Both passages promise the same results — singing, thanksgiving, and power in our relationships. These parallel Scriptures suggest there are two active agents working to help us achieve a renewed mind — the Word of God and the Holy Spirit.
Combine these dynamic agents in your life today.
The Bible without the Holy Spirit is a sundial by moonlight.
