The Spirit of the Word brings life

Grant us the wisdom to understand the Spirit of the Word that we may live by Your precepts, oh Lord.

The Spirit of the Word brings life, the letter of the word killeth.

All who are taught by the Spirit are in agreement with each other about the understanding of the Word of God and the Word of God unites them and makes them of one accord.

All who attempt, without the Spirit of God to teach them, to understand the word will end up judging others by the letter of the word from whence come arguments, debates and division.

By this all man shall know that you are taught by the Spirit, and are disciples of God, by your love for one another.

The letter of the word kills;
love and the Spirit of the Word increases our love for one another.

Amen.
