My journey of personal observations which I have made over the years to apply Bible reading in my life.
1 Corinthians 3:6 He has made us competent to be ministers of a new covenant, not of the letter but of the spirit. For the letter kills, but the spirit produces life.
We have been made ministers of a new coveneant of the spirit.
Application in my life
The letter of the law convicts sin and the wages or the sentence is a death sentence, hence the letter kills. The spirit produces life through the ministry of Jesus and the empowerment of the Holy Spirit. We are freed from the consequences of our sin and able to live under the direction of the spirit which aligns us with the mind of Christ. As ministers, it is our role to serve, to aide, to teach, to pray over, to correct, to disciple, and to love. We are ambassadors of the Christian way of life, and we invite as many as we can to choose it and follow it and spread it and practice it with us.
Lord, thank you for the new covenant, and for showing me how to minister it. Let your will be done in this area in my life and the lives of those whom I share my life with, Amen
