    The Word of God is alive and active, and is different from other words in other books for one very important reason…The Holy Spirit. Without the indwelling of the Holy Spirit (God/Christ in us) the words in the Bible are like the words in any other book at best and they are foolishness at worst, “But people who aren’t spiritual can’t receive these truths from God’s Spirit. It all sounds foolish to them and they can’t understand it, for only those who are spiritual can understand what the Spirit means“ (1 Corinthians 2:14, NLT). If we want engage deeper, beneath the words, beneath our behavior to our hearts and thoughts, we have to listen and surrender to the Holy Spirit and we can’t do this unless we have been born again. So the real question becomes are you born again, are you spiritually alive, and have you surrendered to the Spirit?
