God Does the Heart Work
It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. (John 6:63 KJV)
It is the Spirit of God that quickenth, or bring salvation upon mankind. Salvation is always a work of God and without spiritual work of God inside mankind’s softened heart there is no salvation. The emphasis in this verse of scripture is placed upon the power of God for salvation as genuine salvation does not ever come any other power.
The Word spoken is both filled with Spirit and life. God’s living words are full of supernatural power. They are precipitously pointed to poke and prod at mankind’s heart (Hebrews 4:12). God’s Word delves into the center of the soul to deal with issues of the heart bringing about action towards salvation and spiritual growth in those who are already children of God.
The Word of God reproduces itself like a seed planted in the field. Spiritual sowing always brings an opportunity for new life and growth according to the watering and work of God in hearts in this world.
