“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.”
When we believe and start following Christ, there is a powerful transformation happening in our hearts and our minds. We are no longer ourselves, but we are newly created in Him. We are truly born again! This change is powerful, it is divine and it’s hard to put into words. There is a thirst to pursue God’s ways in all our actions, our words and our relationships. By ourselves we’re just a bud, in Him we develop into a beautiful, fragrant flower. It is all HIS GRACE! Those who truly believe will understand. For those who are not there yet, I can only say: Come to follow Jesus to experience life in a whole new light! Peace and Love.
“5 In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:
6 Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; 7 rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. 8 And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death — even death on a cross!”
If Jesus, who in His very nature being God, could humble himself to be a servant and to be obedient to death, then what are we to do?! Follow His example! Be humble. Obey God. We all know what that means, yet we choose to go the other way. The other way leads to destruction! God’s way leads to LIFE eternal!
“12 No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us. 13 This is how we know that we live in him and he in us: He has given us of his Spirit. 14 And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world. 15 If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in them and they in God. 16 And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.”
Spirit of God is dormant in us until the point we realize and acknowledge that Jesus is the Son of God. The Spirit wakes up our mind and our soul and prompts us to pursue God and seek a close relationship with Him. The Spirit dwells in us and guides us in Love and Truth. It’s that simple! Allow God to enter your heart today! GOD IS LOVE!
