Heavy lifting of the Holy Spirit.
The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, he will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you.
All it takes to enter into a relationship with Jesus is the faith of a mustard seed. He has done everything sufficient to accomplish your salvation! The Holy Spirit prompts you, compels you, draws you, convicts you, convinces you, seals your salvation and now controls you!
Yet, we still have to choose: we can either be dominated by our sin nature or controlled by the Spirit. Consider that the worst version of you is the one dominated by sin and the best version of you is controlled by the Spirit.
Don’t forget today that when you accept Jesus’ offer of salvation, you have access to some heavy power through the Holy Spirit! His Spirit lives in you—the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the grave—therefore, you can rise up over addictions, behaviors, tendencies, attitudes and more. You can thank him today that you no longer have to be dominated by sin!
Through this series, Aaron encouraged us to read Romans 5-8. Read it as God's personal letter to you!
