Spirit Walk – Agree with the Spirit

by

Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. Galatians 5:25 (NIV)

What should our lives look like as we live in the Spirit? Transformation is like sailing. The power comes not from us, but from the wind. Our part is to discern where the wind is blowing so that what we do agrees with the wind, rather than fighting against it.

Spirit Walk – Spiritual Hunger and Thirst

by

On the last day of the feast, the great day, Jesus stood up and cried out, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’” Now this he said about the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were to receive, for as yet the Spirit had not been given, because Jesus was not yet glorified. John 7:37-39 (ESV)

Living water comes from God, but it starts with belief in Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit guides us to understand what truly living in Christ looks like. It’s a surrendered life, a life submitted to the lordship of Christ. The Spirit only comes to us when we are surrendered, when we get out of the way of God controlling our life.

So consider this: what’s the hunger and thirst like in your life? Today, let the Holy Spirit develop in you a prayer life built on hungering for more of God.

Spirit Walk – The Love of God

by

“But whoever does what is true comes to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God.” John 3:21 (ESV)

Jesus came to earth because He loves us, and desires that we live with Him forever in heaven. Because Jesus has lived, died and risen from the dead, we now can be used by the Holy Spirit to shine the light of God to all we encounter, and share His love so that they too may come to faith. The more we live in Christ, the more His love will come alive in us, to the glory of God. Let’s learn anew how to depend on God, because He truly loves us.

Spirit Walk – Surrender

by

Read John 3:1-8 Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not be amazed that I said to […]

Spirit Walk – God the Holy Spirit

by

… I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Christian Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. — Third Article of the Apostles’ Creed.

Not only has God created us, and loved us so much that He gave His Son Jesus to die for our sins, but He also sends the Holy Spirit to enable us to believe that salvation through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus can be ours as a totally free gift, requiring no works of ours to earn it. In addition, the Holy Spirit calls and enables believers everywhere to be one in love for God, for each other, and for those who have not yet answered the Spirit’s call. May each of us listen to and follow the Spirit’s call on our lives today and every day.

Spirit Walk – God the Son

by

… and [I believe] in Jesus Christ his only Son, our Lord, … — Second Article of the Apostles’ Creed.

As much as it is important these days to stand up against evil in our society, it is important for us to understand and acknowledge that that evil lives in each one of us, and that only by the grace of God can we do any good thing. We needed Jesus to die for our salvation; we have no power on our own to approach God because of the pervasiveness of our sin. Having bought us with His own blood, Jesus now has rightful claim to Lordship (ownership) over every aspect of our lives. Recognizing the Lordship of Jesus Christ is the first step to letting that Lordship play out in righteousness each day.

Spirit Walk – God the Father

by

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth. — First Article of the Apostles’ Creed.

This new series of devotions begins with an examination of our belief in the Trinity—Father, Son and Holy Spirit—three distinct persons with one essence. How might it change your perspective on your day to believe in an almighty God, the creator, and yourself as a creature made for His purposes? Listen as Jason elaborates.
