The Holy Spirit transformation is real. God’s Word tells us that we are “more than conquerors” through Christ who loves us (Romans 8:37). Our new “living” self conquers our old “dead” self. It’s the very same power that raised Lazarus from the dead and parted the Red Sea. That’s the power that lives in you and me!
So where we used to join in the gossip, now we turn the conversation around. Where we used to lie to get out of a commitment, now we just say, “No.” Where we used to lose our temper and speak unkind words, now we stop, listen and then speak truth in love. Where we, though married, used to harmlessly flirt with other people, we now set boundaries with others.
Psalm 139 tells us we are “fearfully and wonderfully made.” Sin corrupted that creation, but the good news is that Jesus’ work on the cross returns to us the power to live in the fullness of how we were originally made. Free from sin.
Walk confidently in the newness of Resurrection Life!
“I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” Galatians 2:20
