THEME: THE HOLY SPIRIT
“For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.”
-We all know that our bodies are the temples of the Holy Spirit. The body is symbolic to the outer court, the soul synonymous to the holy place and the spirit to the holy of hollies. The Holy Spirit who dwells in our spirit, that is; the holy of hollies and bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God. If we are children of God then we are heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ. Jesus Christ brought us near to God through His death and resurrection, and made us His children. The Holy Spirit washed us, sanctified us and justified us in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. He renews our minds by the washing with His word daily. 1 Corinthians 15:42 says that, “Our earthly bodies are planted in the ground when we die, but they will be raised to live forever”. If we are joint heirs with Christ we will obtain new bodies and be glorified together with Him in the last day through the gift of eternal life. The Holy Spirit testifies/witnesses with our spirit that we are children of God, we can comfortably call Him Abba Father anytime, and especially during worship and prayers. We have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear, which is not the Spirit of God but a free spirit or a spirit of liberty which yield grace and righteousness.
We give thanks to You Lord for You are good and Your love endures forever. Give thanks to the God of gods, His love endures forever. Give thanks to the Lord of lords, His love endures forever. To him who alone does great wonders, His love endures forever. Who by his understanding made the heavens, His love endures forever. Who spread out the earth upon the waters, His love endures forever. Who made the great lights, His love endures forever. The moon and stars to govern the night, His love endures forever. Thank You Holy Spirit for this great opportunity that You have granted us to see yet another day in perfect peace. Guide us throughout this week and shepherd us in the way we should go. Make all our ways prosperous and make us succeed in all things for victory belongs to You Lord. Breathe in us, O Holy Spirit, that our thoughts may all be holy. Act in us O Holy Spirit, that our work may be holy. Draw our hearts O Holy Spirit, that we may love what is holy. Strengthen us, O Holy Spirit to defend all that is holy. Guard us, O Holy Spirit, that we may always be holy. Abba Father thank You for loving us with Your everlasting love. Thank You for making us Your children. May You hear and answer all our prayers and hearts desires according to Your holy will. Amen
