Let us open with a scripture from the gospel of John the 14th chapter.

John 14:
16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

Jesus made the supreme sacrifice. He told His disciples that He needed to go away so He could send the Comforter, the Holy Ghost, the Spirit of Truth back to us. We need to give Him thanks for what He did for us.

We should live our lives in total surrender to God and always remember that He has our best interest in mind. We were purchased at great price. God has placed a call on each individual for a specific purpose here on the earth. If we trust on, delight in and commit our ways unto God, He will see to it that we have everything we need to complete the task that was set before us. It is up to us to accept the calling and fulfill what we are called to do. We will not come short in any good thing when we trust on, delight in and commit our lives unto Him. God chose to dwell in a vessel not made with hands.

Listed below are a few scriptures that confirm the Spirit of God dwells within us.

Romans 8:
11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

1 Corinthians 3:
16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

Galatians 4:.
6 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.

In the passage below Jesus is talking with Nicodemus about the new birth. Jesus was explaining to him the path to eternal life. First you have to be born of a woman. This is the gateway into the earth. Secondly you have to be born of the Spirit of God which is the new birth when you accept Jesus as your personal saviour and make Him the Lord of your life.

John 3: 1-8
1 There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:
2 The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.
3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the
second time into his mother's womb, and be born?
5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.


Until next time, KEEP THE FAITH !!!!!!!
