Spiritual Blessings

From Ephesians 1:13-14:  “ In Him you also, when you had heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and had believed in Him, were marked with the seal of the promised Holy Spirit; this is the pledge of our inheritance toward redemption as God’s own people, to the praise of his glory.”

Whenever you feel defeated, remember this:  As believers, we have all the power needed to live as God desires, because He has given us His Holy Spirit.

From John 14:15-17:  “If you love me, you will keep my commandments.  And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Advocate, to be with you forever.  This is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him.  You know Him, because He abides with you, and He will be in you.”

Marked by God

From Romans 12:1-2:  “I appeal to you therefore, brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.  Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God—what is good and acceptable and perfect.”

From Romans 12:19-21:  “Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave room for the wrath of God; for it is written, ‘Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.’  No, ‘if your enemies are hungry, feed them; if they are thirsty, give them something to drink; for by doing this you will heap burning coals on their heads.’  Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”

A heartless Christian must be a terrible grief to our Lord.  Are you in the direct line of intercession of our Lord and the Holy Spirit?

From Romans 8:26-27:  “Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we ought, but that very Spirit intercedes with sighs too deep for words.  And God, who searches the heart, knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.”

His Glory Brings Peace

From Matthew 5:9:  “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.”

His glory brings peace, best gift ever

From the words of American pastor and Christian teacher, Charles Stanley:  To be a peacemaker is to reflect the image of our heavenly Father–using our breath, energy, and creativity to sow peace wherever the Spirit takes us.

There are whole tracts of stubbornness and ignorance to be revealed by the Holy Spirit in each of us, and it can only be done when Jesus gets us alone.

From Mark 4:10-12:  “When He [Jesus] was alone, those who were around Him along with the twelve asked Him about the parables.  And He said to them, ‘To you has been given the secret of the kingdom of God, but for those outside, everything comes in parables; in order that they may indeed look, but not perceive, and may indeed listen, but not understand; so that they may not turn again and be forgiven.'”
