Run, run and do as the Law commands, but gives me neither feet nor hands.
Better news the Gospel brings, it bids me fly and gives me wings.
Today we aren’t subject to the Law, but are filled with the Holy Spirit. Romans 8:11, If the spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal body through His Spirit who dwells in you.
He is real and personal and will be to us what we allow Him to be. He is the spirit of life and lives in us. He will occupy your house. Are there rooms you don’t want Him to enter?
He changes our thinking. He doesn’t change the way we think, he changes the source of our thinking. Actions flow from thoughts. Renewing our minds is not a one-time thing. It is a daily process not a crash course. How is this accomplished? Reading and studying Scripture, listening to messages and fellowship with like believers.
Not only are we committed to God, he is committed to us:
God’s responsibility – to change us
Our responsibility – to co-operate with the Holy Spirit. To be in a close relationship with Him.
What a great God we serve!
