There are several passages of Scripture that indicate that God sends his Spirit to dwell within his children. Here is one of those passages:
If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you. (Romans 8:11 ESV)
Have you thought about how incredible it is that God’s Spirit dwells within us?
The Spirit convicts, encourages, strengthens, guides… so many different functions. Yet, the Spirit of God does not force us to do or say anything.
I’ve studied several aspects of the Spirit. I even wrote a paper once about the Holy Spirit in the Pentateuch (the first five books of the Old Testament). But, the more I think about and read in Scripture about the Spirit, I realize that there is much that I don’t understand.
Perhaps I’ll write a series of posts about the Spirit after I finish my series about internet ministry.
What is the most amazing thing about being indwelled by the Holy Spirit to you? What major question(s) do you have about the Spirit indwelling people?
