The Same Spirit

If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit.  Galatians 5:25

When we came to Christ we were drawn by the Spirit.  We did nothing to bring ourselves to Christ–He wooed us to Himself.  The same Spirit that wooed us, then saved us from our sins, doing a work of regeneration in our hearts.  We live by that Spirit.  We got our spiritual life by that Spirit.

Paul says here, “If you live by that Spirit, then walk by that Spirit.”  Doesn’t it make sense.  If we trusted the Spirit to bring us from death to life, can we not trust the same Spirit to take us through this life!  We can!  As a matter of fact we must.

In Romans 8:11, Paul said, “If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from 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.”  If the Spirit is powerful enough to raise Jesus from the dead, then He is powerful enough to raise you from any circumstance in which you find yourself.

The Spirit who brought Jesus to life lives in you!  Live the life today!
