He Gave Us Life
The Spirit Of The Lord
17: He Gave Us Life
God’s spirit made me and gave me life. Job 33:4
He has made us competent as ministers of a new covenant–not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life. 2 Corinthians 3:6
And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you. Romans 8:11
The Holy Spirit made us and gave us life. He gave us both physical and spiritual life. Jesus was born of the Spirit and the Holy Spirit fathered Him physically and spiritually. We are also born of the Spirit, spiritually. You can now see how awesome our big Daddy is. He is here on earth as both Lord, Master and Father of the redeemed, praise God.
The Holy Spirit not only gave us life but He gives constant life and His life, power and mercies are new everyday. It is available at the throne of Grace. He is the constant source of life that we should run to everyday.
As a father He is our mentor, companion and best friend. The one who gave birth to us will never disappoint us. It is only a thief that destroys but a father will always build up and help even when He corrects.
We must always show Him maximum respect because He deserves it. We must honour Him, love Him and worship Him because He gave us life and His life sustains us. Glory to God! As we rely on Him and depend on Him daily, He will perfect all that concerns us and bring us into maturity and son-ship to reflect the image of Christ. He will make us know and experience the richness of His grace.
Come Holy Spirit, precious Father, we need you.
But if Christ is in you, then even though your body is subject to death because of sin, the Spirit gives life because of righteousness. Romans 8:10
Those who belong to Christ Jesus are no longer under God’s judgement. Because of what Christ Jesus has done, you are free. You are now controlled by the law of the Holy Spirit who gives you life. Romans 8:1-2
The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you–they are full of the Spirit and life. John 6:63
