Good morning, Lord Jesus. Let Your Word and Your Spirit have Their way in my life today.  

"It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life" (John 6:63).

This morning I continue my reflection this week on our identity in Christ.  Come, Holy Spirit. Fall afresh on me. Rise up within me. Renew me and revive me. Awaken me and anoint me. Flow into me and out of me. Inspire me and empower me and give me life -- the fullness of the abundance of life in Christ (John 10:10).

You are "the Spirit of Christ," making me more like Christ (Romans 8:9). You are "the Spirit of Jesus," making me more like Jesus (Acts 16:17; Philippians 1:19). You are "the Spirit of truth," making me desire to be one with the One who is the Truth -- "the Way, and the Truth, and the Life" (John 15:26; John 14:6). "For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set (me) free from the law of sin and death.... To set (my) mind on the flesh is death, but to set (my) mind on the Spirit is life and peace.... But (I am) not in the flesh; (I am) in the Spirit, since the Spirit of God dwells in (me)" (Romans 8:2-11).

Words of spirit and life, change me today. "The word of God abides in (me).... (I) have been anointed by the Holy One.... Let what (I) heard from the beginning abide in (me). If what (I) heard from the beginning abides in (me), then (I) will abide in the Son and in the Father. And this is what He has promised (me), eternal life" (1 John 2:14-20). Lord, let me live my life that way today and throughout my eternity. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

My family, I pray God's words of spirit and life abide in you and flow out of you to change who you are and the world around you today, in Jesus' name! Please pray the same for me. God bless you, my friends!
