“If the Spirit of God that raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Jesus from the dead will make alive your mortal body by the Spirit of God that dwells in you.” Romans 8:11
Do you believe that the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead lives in you? If so, when we feel tired or weak, what we need is the Holy Spirit to give life to our mortal body the way He raised Jesus from the dead.
Challenges your faith doesn’t it?? Notice in this verse that God, the Holy Spirit and Jesus are mentioned not once but twice. Could it be that all three persons of the Godhead are more than just a little interested in giving life to your mortal body?
As wonderful as this sounds, how do we receive a boost of resurrection power from the Holy Spirit. How do we receive the life of God that will drive out the challenges our bodies face daily?
The answer lies in the preceding verse “And if Christ is in you, although your body is dead because of sin and guilt, the Spirit is alive because of the righteousness that He imputes to you.” (Romans 8:10) That says the Spirit is life because of righteousness. In other words, life has something to do with righteousness. And it all begins with us believing it’s true.
So the more conscious we are of our righteousness (right standing with God) the more life flows into our mortal bodies. So renew your mind and meditate on God’s truth about your right standing with God because of Jesus.
The more righteous conscious we are, the more life from the Spirit touches and makes us alive. Jesus never doubted His standing with the Father, so why should we. And look what flowed through Him.
