Sometimes it’s hard for me to see and understand the lengths that you went through just to show me how much you love me and how much you desire to have a relationship with me. You died on the cross for my sins and you rose from the grave to prove that You are victorious over sin and death. I serve a God who is sovereign, merciful, gracious and abounding in steadfast love. Would you give me the strength to love you and to follow you with everything that I’ve got. To make you not just my top priority but my ONE & ONLY priority in life.
To You I give all the praise and Glory forever. AMEN! ”
Saying you’re a Christian but there’s no indwelling of His Holy Spirit is like seeing a military guy at war with out his uniform, weapons, and everything that he necessarily needs to function and to be distinguished as an active military personal.
Same thing, if we claim to be Christians we need to embrace our new identity in Christ. We stand with confidence because His Spirit is alive and active in our lives. We remain grounded in His word so that no matter what the enemy or the world tells us, we aren’t moved or shaken by anything because we stand on the Rock on the Truth which is Jesus Christ.
With out the continual awareness of His Spirit and power, We will remain lukewarm, weak, and defeated in our faith and daily battles. Like like an army personnel without his uniform and weapons expect to see him dead instantly.
