A Glory Seed Devotional
The Spirit brings life…
“We are sure about all this. Christ makes us sure in the very presence of God. We don’t have the right to claim that we have done anything on our own. God gives us what it takes to do all that we do. He makes us worthy to be the servants of his new agreement that comes from the Holy Spirit and not from a written Law. After all, the Law brings death, but the Spirit brings life.” (2 Corinthians 3:4–6, CEV)
Words come and words go but there are some words that will forever stand against the shifting sands of time. There are words that are easy to understand but there words that never in a thousand lifetimes will we ever completely understand such as, “…but the Spirit brings life.”
Many define life in terms of the human body’s ability to support physical life. Many define death in terms of the human body’s inability to no longer support physical life. There are those who think they know all there is to know about life and death yet in terms of life that comes from the Spirit they know so little. True life and death that exist beyond the realm of time cannot be understood with our five senses. In the beginning life was not given to humankind only to expire after an elapsed period of time.
All that we can experience with our five senses including the earth and even the seemingly lifeless rocks has life. Those who have accepted the life of Spirit will experience the divine life not only in all things but every aspect of their lives as well. Where there is hopelessness hope will come to life. Where there is anxiety and conflict peace will come to life. Where there is brokenness wholeness will come to life. Where there is helplessness divine assistance will be given. Where there is weakness, strength will be given. Where there is repentance, forgiveness too will be given. Where defeat is evident victory will come at the hands of Jesus and the wings of the Spirit. And where there is scarcity there will be Abundance.
Let the words spoken to Nicodemus be the focus of your life then with faith allow them to open up your life as you’ve never known it before. “Only God’s Spirit gives new life. The Spirit is like the wind that blows wherever it wants to. You can hear the wind, but you don’t know where it comes from or where it is going.” (John 3:8, CEV)
Believe it! Experience it!
Grace and PEACE,
