Day Five - “And if the Spirit…is Living in You”

Friday, May 23rd, 2014

Romans 8:11 - “And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you.”

Through Jesus’s life, death and resurrection, we have received a brand new life.  The same Spirit who raised Jesus from the dead is now living in us!  It is the incredible truth that empowers us to live as God’s children here on this earth.  We are no longer slaves to our sinful thoughts and ways of this world.  Instead, we can live life full of love, hope and faith.  We may at times, feel like we are still living in chains.  We may even find ourselves keep wanting to go back to the old ways of living.  We may question ourselves , “Is it really true that I can overcome my sinful habits?”  In Christ, it is “YES” and “AMEN.”

Just as sure as the Jesus’ life, death and resurrection, we can surely live in the reality of the life in Jesus our Lord.  We have been made alive by the Spirit, therefore, we can put to death our old habits and sinful ways of the world.  We can now live in the truth and walk in the ways of love.  Church, let’s worship and proclaim what God has done for us!  Let’s thank God for the Holy Spirit who dwells in us and enable us to live a victorious life in Christ.  Let’s pray for our churches that we will continue to live in this Spirit empowered resurrection reality.
