Running the Race as a Winner
Ephesians 5:8, 17, 18
Filled with the Spirit,
I develop a deep acquaintance with Yeshua,
My god and my Savior –
Practically applying the truth.
Born in the flesh, we grew without God; separated from him in our desire, action, intent, and purpose. Born of the Spirit and adopted by God we are united with Yeshua and grow closer to the aspiration, accomplishment, purpose, and objective of God as our own craving, accomplishment, determination, and drive are disciplined by Rauch Ha Kodesh/the Holy Spirit of God.
When the last trump sounds and this body of flesh joins the spirit of life, united in hope, deed, aim, and goal with the Spirit of God our salvation will be complete. Until that day compliance is the key word. He says, “If you keep my commandments, you shall abide in my love[i]…that your joy might be full.” We let Rauch Ha Kodesh/the Holy Spirit control us so His fruit will germinate and become effective in our lives, then the body of Christ will, with one mouth and one mind exalt the God and Father of our Lord Yeshua Ha Mashiach/Jesus Christ.
Prayer: Lord, you are very great. How precious also are your thoughts to me. You understand my thoughts afar off. You comprehend my path and are acquainted with all my ways. Fill me with your spirit, Lord. Control my action and manifest your gifts in me.
[i] That doesn’t mean God doesn’t love a disobedient child; it means that when we obey we get the full benefit of God’s love.
