I’ve heard many say that the words of the Bible or scripture are empty unless they are empowered by the Spirit. I think this creates an unnecessary separation of the two, but that’s the question of this post.
The gospel is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes. Romans 1:16
The Gospel IS the POWER. It’s interesting that the scriptures do not say “derives its power,” or “has been given power,” but “is the power.” Naturally, or supernaturally, I assume that the scriptures are powerful in and of themselves. Is that a good assumption? Why or Why Not?
