Spirit and Life

Your words, O LORD, are Spirit and life

It is the Spirit who gives life[eternal]; the flesh profits nothing; the words that I have spoken to you are spirit and are life. -Jn 6:63

The unfolding of Your word, the flowering of truth
brings life and rejoicing to the heart;
Restoring the soul.

In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. -Jn 1:14

Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom would we go? You have the words of eternal life”.  -Jn 6:68

The unfolding of Your words gives light; It gives understanding to the simple. -Ps 119:130

The law of the LORD is perfect, restoring[reviving] the soul; The testimony[statues] of the LORD is sure[trustowrthy], making wise the simple. The precepts of the LORD are right, giving joy[rejoicing] to the heart. The commands of the LORD are radiant[pure], giving light to the eyes. -Ps 19:7-8

My child, pay attention to my words; listen attentively to my sayings. Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; for they are life to those who find them and healing to one’s entire body. Watch over[guard] your heart with all diligence, for from it flow the springs of life[it is the wellspring of life]. -Pro 4:20-23
