Our Assurance the Holy Spirit
“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 through his Spirit, who lives in you.”
Friends: The Holy Spirit doesn’t just empower us now. He is our guarantee (2 Corinthians 1:22; 5:5) and our assurance that we will see God face to face (1 John 3:1-2) and share in his glory (Colossians 3:1-4). He is alive in us and promises us life that never will end. Because Jesus Christ lives in believers, the old man (“mortal bodies”) is dead, but The Spirit lives and reigns, and will live out His salvation even through our mortal bodies through resurrection. Not only are we in Christ (Romans 8:1), but He also is in us. And because God cannot abide in a sinful home, the body (old man) had to die when Christ arrived.
O God and Father of all nations and races, thank you for your guarantee that you will work in our lifes through the Holy Spirit and raise me up by your Spirit’s power to join you in your presence. Good Morning and Have a Blessed day and a Restful Weekend Everyone…..
