A New Life

And if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you’ Rom 8:10-11 .

Sounds confusing?

What this scripture means is if we our spiritual life is strong the Spirit itself will empower life in you to do exceeding, abundantly, righteously, full like an overflow vessel and victorious Christian life you can imagine. No Christian would like to live a half cup spirit.

There are testimonies after testimonies of how Christian give up his/hers body to a life lead by Holy Spirit and how this transform their old living into marvelous new leaf.

Sometime is easy to say than done don’t you think. No one is perfect not even me. But there are means and ways of how we can take a bold step to enter into a spiritual realm. 5 practical steps you can be active in building up you spiritual life.

1. Read the Bible consistently- that is how you understand what God speaking to you. There is also you find wisdom in life. The more you read your spirit will began to active a communion with you and God.

2. Pray – to be closer to Holy Spirit you need to pray as often as you can. This means discipline your-self to speak with God. The Holy Spirit will gradually guide you.

3. Watch yourself – Behave and not be detestable to God. There are many detestable things that God dislike. But God didn’t ask you to be a perfect person and walk like Christ. But refrain from doing things that will spike God’s wrath. Be quick to ask for forgiveness. Also watch what you speak because it can hurt the Holy Spirit.

4. Speak in tongue - If you are born again Christian you know how to speak in tongue. If you are not then you need to be born again. (No, I just pulling your leg). Speaking in tongue comes naturally if you allow the Holy Spirit to take over you and you will utter words of neither you or your neighbor understands but God only understand.

5. Associate your life with other Christians – if you are poor follower of the first four steps why not follow an example of other Christian brother or sister you know and emulate their way of life. Please pick up the good treats not the bad one. This is called Blessing by Associating

So, don’t let the carnal flesh takes over your life. Refuse yourself to be a defeated Christian life. Give the Spirit a chance to elevate you to a new level of life. God is already waiting to receive you with open arms.

God Bless
