Spirit of Adoption Part 2

For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. For ye have not received the Spirit of bondage, to fear again: but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The same Spirit beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God. If we be children, we are also heirs, even the heirs of God, and heirs annexed with Christ: if so be that we suffer with him, that we may also be glorified with him.

The Epistle to the Romans 8:14-17 (Geneva Bible Translation Ed. 1599)

Additional Scripture upon which to meditate;

Isaiah 56:5; Mark 14:36; Acts 26:18; Galatians 5:18; Ephesians 1:13; Philippians 1:29 Hebrews 21:15; 2 Timothy 1:7;

Good morning in the name of Christ

As is written in the OT by the Prophet Isaiah, (see above related scripture), our Creator has given us a new name. We are now known as heirs to the kingdom. If there is anything that can be better it is unknown to this writer. 

In OT, the people were descendents of Abraham and looked at him as their patriarch. Yet the Apostle Paul has now told us, that through the death of our Redeemer, Jesus, that while we are still descendents of Abraham, we’re now children of God. We have been grafted into His family, and are all now one.  

Friends, if you wish to be part of God’s family, pray with me please;

Father, I have seen Your words this morning. I cry out to You and confess my sins. I accept Your offer of grace and mercy, by acknowledging the sacrifice of Your Son Jesus Christ as atonement for my sins. Amen.

The Spirit of Adoption through Christ Part 1

Therefore brethren, we are debtors not to the flesh, to live after the flesh: For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye mortify the deeds of the body by the Spirit, ye shall live.
The Epistle to the Romans 8:12-13

Read and meditate upon Galatians 6:8; Ephesians 4:22

To all brethren and friends good morning in the might name of Jesus Christ

Succinctly and simply written by Paul the Apostle. If one continues to live in the carnality of the flesh one will reap the rewards of that carnality. Yet if we daily put to death the life of the aforementioned, with the Helper (a), that is the Holy Spirit, we gain life. Let us therefore pursue  excellence, and seek the golden crown at the end of the race. 

As Jesus had spoken, what gain is it to a man have the whole world when in the end he loses his life? Friends, it is urged that you seek Him, and gain life. Pray with me please

Father, today I wish to gain eternal life with You. I renounce my sin, and confess Jesus as my Savior. Amen

(a) John 14:16, 15:26

Freed from The Indwelling of Sin Part 3

Now ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, because the spirit of God dwelleth in you: but if any man hath not the Spirit of Christ, the same is not his. And if Christ be in you, the body is dead, because of sin: but the Spirit is life for righteousness sake. But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead, dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead, shall also quicken your mortal bodies, by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
The Epistle to the Romans 8:9-12

Additional Scripture upon which to meditate;
Acts 2:24; 1 Corinthians 6:14

Good morning and greetings in the name of Jesus Christ

We read today that if we walk in the Spirit, we have life. This is a promise of God Himself. Once the carnality of our minds is put to death, and the renewing of our minds is put into action, we can see that the former ways are not ways that we should follow. Additionally, we have the promise by God, that our mortal bodies shall be quickened, that is to say made alive, reinvigorated, (a) to eternal life. How that will look, no one can say, for as the Apostle Paul writes we see things only in part. However, while at work yesterday, it was impressed upon the mind of this writer, that when God made us in His image originally, we had His righteousness, and His spirit, dwelling within us. By redeeming us unto Himself, we will once again have that perfect image that He had given us.

Friends, if you have come across this site for the first time, and have read the study today, and are now willing to make a choice for eternal life, then please pray with me.

Father, I have read Your words this morning. I acknowledge my sins, and confess them to You. I accept the sacrifice of Your only Son Jesus Christ as my Savior. Teach me Your ways and help me to learn more about You. Amen

(a) Source Webster's Dictionary Ed. 1828.
Additionally, Strong's Concordance translates this word from the Greek as;
 suzoopoieo sood-zo-op-oy-eh'-o; to reanimate 

and from the Hebrew translation;

as chayah khaw-yaw' ; to live, whether literally or figuratively; causatively, to revive:--keep (leave, make) alive, certainly, give (promise) life, (let, suffer to) live, nourish up, preserve (alive), quicken, recover, repair, restore (to life), revive, (God) save (alive, life, lives), surely, be whole.
I particularly note the words “be whole” as it infers the meaning of being complete both in body, mind and spirit.
