Do you really believe that the Word is powerful? Do you believe as Paul says elsewhere “the Word of God is at work among you!” – this is what Paul drives at in these verses in contrasting two slaveries – the slavery of the flesh that false teaching binds us to – and the slavery of righteousness that gospel preaching binds us to.

So let us consider how the gospel preaching binds us to the LORD and breaks us from the flesh!
