September 15–Giving the Spirit Elbow Room

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. Galatians 2:20

Let’s make this personal…God did.

Because of His unfailing, pursuing, passionate love Jesus, God’s holy and perfect Son, gave His life for me.

Because of His absolute and extravagant humility Jesus obeyed His ABBA even to the point of choosing to die a cruel and shameful death for me.

Because of His incomprehensible, almighty power Jesus rose from the dead and conquered sin and death…and Jesus offers to live in me so that neither sin nor death will ever have any more power over me or my life. Ever again.

Jesus has put His Spirit within each of us His children, within each of us His followers. And the Spirit of Jesus wants to take up a whole lot more elbow room in our lives so that we will more truly and authentically reflect the unfailing, pursuing, passionate love of Jesus…the absolute and extravagant humility of Jesus…and the incomprehensible, almighty power Jesus! 

This is how we should be known and seen. This is how we should live—think, speak and act.

Let’s make this personal…God did.

Let’s each choose to allow the Spirit of the Living God to live in us with a whole lot more elbow room!

In love, peace and purposeful passion,                                                               Sylane
