The Word is the Sword. We tend to think of the Word being the sword against all of our enemies out there – but such is not all the sword is. The sword is against ME. The sword kills me – my flesh. That is the job of the Word – making me dead and keeping me dead.
The Law is Christ. Law is law because of God’s word – He says it is so. There is no law but Christ – therefore, keeping Christ is keeping law!
