My devotion

Friday, February 13, 2015

I have been learning so much about who Jesus is and who God has made me to be. Here is a little snippet into what I am learning and dwelling on.

"But if Christ is in you, although the body is dead because of sin, the Spirit is life because of righteousness. If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus for the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you". Romans 8:10-11 (ESV)

This verse has a lot to say. Way more than I can completely grasp all at once. First off, I am amazed that God is so good to live in and through us despite our sinfulness. This sets me free. It sets me free from trying to be perfect, from pretending to be perfect. Because right here in Romans it says, "the body is dead because of sin, the Spirit is life..." We do not and cannot be perfect but I am so thankful that I have a God who is.

Second, the God who rose Jesus from the dead is the Spirit who dwell inside of me. Are you kidding me? The same God who all powerfully and perfectly raised Jesus is the same God who choses to live in and through me. Wow!
