HE’S IN THERE!

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. (Romans 6:4)

 

Life happens, so you don’t always feel like jumping over rafters, but your salvation is not based on feelings, but faith! Thank God! When you just take a moment to think about your new relationship with Jesus, it just blows your mind!

The reality, that since we’ve accepted Jesus as our personal Savior and Lord, resurrection life has taken up permanent residence in our mortal bodies is almost unbelievable! Oh yeah, we never have to worry about having to meander through this life on our own. We’re now full of the Resurrection Life of God! WOW!

By faith we know, just like Prego, everything we need pertaining to life and godliness is in there! However, I must caution you. Be ware of those pesty lil “life suckers” that can severely restrict the outpouring of your new resurrection life. Particularly, pride, greed, selfishness and disobedience!

Even though you are born again, habitual sin can cause the resurrection life to become covert or undeveloped. But that’s why God sent Holy Spirit to live in us! God knew that left to our innately human limitations, it would be virtually impossible to live the God-Honoring life that pleases Him. Hence, the Holy Ghost empowers you from the inside out to overcome sin and walk in the newness of HIS Life!

Included in your salvation benefits package is the sin-clause! Sin no longer has dominion over you. (Romans 6:14) The more time spent building your relationship with Jesus, studying God’s Word and communing with Him in prayer, Holy Spirit strengthens you to put sin right where it belongs, trapped under your feet.

Unlike your previous Hard-Task-Master, Satan, Holy Spirit never forces His will on us, but graciously waits for us to choose to do the right thing then strengthens us to walk in the spirit instead of being controlled by the dictates of our lust-filled carnal flesh. And we all know how that turns out, huh?

Beloved, Christ never intended us to be bound by fear, guilt and shame, but free to enjoy life everyday filled to the brim, overflowing with confident trust, assurance and fellowship, empowered by His Presence, Joy and Peace! Now datz a mouthful, huh? BUT? #didjaheardat? (Ref. John 8:36)

Personally, one of the greatest benefits of this resurrected life is you no longer have to struggle trying to change yourself! The Christ-Regenerated Life in you affirms your resolve that as ‘I deny myself, spend time in The Word and prayer, I can do all things with the help of Holy Spirit!’ Awemaazing, huh? (Ref. Philippians 4:13)

Go ahead with ur righteous self! Walk in the Resurrected Life! It’s okay, HE’s in there!

SELAH!

Pause, Ponder, Pray & Praiz!

ITZ CONTROVERSIAL?

ITZ CONTROVERSIAL

SELAH Daily Devotions!

“But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth” (Acts 1:8)

Who is the most important person in the earth today? WOW! Talk about a brow-raising provocative attention getting disruption! I suppose the more intellectual individual would promptly interject, “That depends! It’s all relative to one’s personal proclivity and objectivity! ”

An avid sports enthusiast may call out his favorite team’s star performer, based on his/her stats. While the more musically inclined person, might consider that artistic-talented-top-of-the –chart entertainer. Yet again, to that bright-eyed-looking-just-like-your-Daddy 7-yr. old son could profoundly-energetically proclaim his-giant-of-a-man progenitor

However, as a Bible-Living-Trusting-Believer I entreat you to consider The Triune God, in the Person of Holy Spirit, the MVP in the earth heads down and hands up! Now ask me why? Because, Jesus said so!

“I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also. At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.” (John 14:18-20) Didjaheardat?

Jesus completely fulfilled The Father’s Redemptive Plan, by the shedding of His Atoning Blood restoring the relationship so abruptly breached by Adam’s disobedience (Ref. Hebrews 9:22) opening up the way for anyone who will accept His Saving Grace to live eternally in Heaven!  However, it was the Fulfillment of The Promise, on The Day of Pentecost, when Holy Spirit showed up in the Upper-Room, filling all 120 waiting souls (with the evidence of speaking in unknown tongues) that subsequently empowers us to live triumphantly overcoming in this present world!

“And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.” (Acts 2:1-4)

So what’s so controversial? How can we live ‘HOLY’ without the Indwelling Power of Holy Spirit? How can we walk in The Spirit, be lead by The Spirit, be effective witnesses to a lost death reigning world without the Life-Giving Light illuminating through these vessels of clay? (Ref. 7:18)

“He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost.” (Acts 19:2)

STILL CONTROVERSIAL, HUH? WELL? REALLY? #itzrelative

SELAH!

“Have a WONDER-FILLED day?”
