Spirit Within

From Romans 8:12-13:  “So then, brothers and sisters, we are obligated, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh—for if you live according to the flesh, you will die, but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.”

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 groanings too deep for words.  And God, who searches hearts, knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.”

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.

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

If we only give up something to God because we want more back, there is nothing of the Holy Spirit in our abandonment.

From Mark 10:28:  “Peter began to say to Him [Jesus], ‘Look, we have left everything and followed you.'”

His Good Purpose

From Philippians 1:20:  “It is my eager expectation and hope that I will not be put to shame in any way, but that by my speaking with all boldness, Christ will be exalted now as always in my body, whether by life or by death.”

We must, without apology, without fear, without ceasing, preach and practice our beliefs, carrying them out to the point of suffering.

From Galatians 5:25:  “If we live by the Spirit, let us also be guided by the Spirit.”

Through the power of the Holy Spirit, believers have the ability to endure difficultly and accomplish whatever the Lord calls them to do.

From 2 Corinthians 3:4-6:  “Such is the confidence that we have through Christ toward God.  Not that we are competent of ourselves to claim anything as coming from us; our competence is from God, who has made us competent to be ministers of a new covenant, not of letter but of spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.”

Spirit Leading

From Romans 5:5:  “Hope does not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us.”

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.”

The Holy Spirit cannot be located as a Guest in a house, He invades everything.  He takes charge of everything, my part is to walk in the light and to obey all that He reveals.

From Romans 6:4-5:  “Therefore we have been buried with him by baptism into death, so that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life.”
