“When you walk into the room the atmosphere should change because you are walking in The Spirit”. Chris Brooks
When I heard this statement I started to really question if I was an atmosphere changer. Romans 8 is a great manual on How to Live in the Spirit and be an atmosphere changer.
12 Therefore, brothers and sisters, we have an obligation—but it is not to the flesh, to live according to it. 13 For if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live. 14 For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. 15 The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.” 16 The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. 17 Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory. Romans 8:12-17
We first have to die to our flesh and walk in The Spirit in order to change the atmosphere. It is very clear if we live in the flesh we will die but if we live by the Spirit we will have life. It is also a guarantee that we will be heirs of God. If we are willing to die to our flesh, we can be atmosphere changers because we will be walking in the image of The Creator. The difficult part is we have to die to our flesh daily. When we wake up in the morning we must be willing to walk in The Spirit. We must bear ALL the Fruit of the Spirit and not just some of the fruit. Are you willing to die to the flesh daily to be an atmosphere changer?
