The Spirit that Raised Jesus Christ from the Dead Dwells in You

Now that you are in Christ you are now a new creature. You stand now as an entirely new being, an embodiment of divine transformation. If indeed the Holy Spirit dwells in you it means that the life that you have now has been given to you by Him.  He has given life to your mortal body. The righteous requirement of the law is fulfilled in you because you no longer live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.

Because the Holy Spirit dwells in you it means that you also died with Christ and now have life: a life of liberation from sin. A seismic shift has occurred, steering you away from the futile trappings of the flesh, and propelling you towards a realm where the Spirit reigns supreme. Remember that the same spirit that raised Jesus Christ now dwells in you and gives you life.

Let’s live according to the Spirit which gives us life and not be carnal. Let’s focus on the things of the Spirit and put our flesh to death. Remember that it is through the Holy Spirit that we eagerly wait for the hope of righteousness. God’s standard is perfection and on His righteousness through Christ can we meet this standard.
