The Spirit of Life
I love the words of the Lord Jesus:
“I have come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly” (John 10:10).
Abundant life – there is something so compelling about that, something that says within us, “Yes, I must have this.” And who ministers this abundant life to us? The Holy Spirit.
The Lord Jesus said:
“It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing; the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life” (John 6:63).
Oh my dear friend, when the Spirit of the Lord comes, He brings life – breaking the power of canceled sin and death.
Whatever has died in you can live again just by His touch! And He brings not just endless life, but better life right now.
“The law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death” (Romans 8:2).
Are you experiencing all the life the Holy Spirit has for you? Someone gave me this quote, and I think it sums up the issue magnificently:
“I believe that only one person in a thousand knows the trick of really living in the present. Most of us spend fifty eight minutes each hour either living in the past, regretting for lost joys, or feeling shame for things done badly done (both utterly useless and weakening); or living the future which we either long for or dread. The only way to live is to accept each minute as an unrepeatable miracle, which is exactly what it is – a miracle that will not be repeated.”
The Spirit of the Lord is waiting just now to heal your past, guarantee your future, and liberate you to experience life right now.
