Be Spiritually Alive
Jesus answered and said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”John 3:3
We are born again when we repent, except Christ as our Lord and Savior, baptized and receive the Holy Spirit. It’s an amazing blessing that the Holy Spirit, the spirit of God lives in us. But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. (John 16:13) The Spirit connects us to Christ, who guides us through life.
Without being born again and receiving the Holy Spirit, we will never see the Kingdom of God. It’s the power of God that guides us through life via the Spirit. In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. (Romans 8:26) The Spirit takes the words of Christ and presents them to us, and takes our words and presents them to Christ.
With the Spirit living within us, we have the power of God. Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, (Ephesians 3:20) We are spiritually alive, guided by Christ with the power of God. Without the Holy Spirit we are living in own power, but with the Spirit we are alive, living in the power of God, where all things are possible.
And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws. (Ezekiel 36:27) These are prophecies spoke by God, defining the purpose the Holy Spirit living in us, and we should pray and make every effort to be guided by Christ through the Spirit. Through the Spirit we have faith in Christ, with total dependence on God.
All Christians need to be thankful that they have the Holy Spirit of God, guiding them through life. Think deeply what it means to have the Spirit of God living within us, and seek to live in the Spirit’s guidance and the power that God can work through us.
Today realize you are born God, and Spirit of God lives within you. We have the power of God, to overcome Satan’s temptations, and the power to overcome the sinful world.
Prayer: Lord, help me to live in your divine power, and to use your power to be a Light for Christ. In Jesus name, Amen
