9 You, however, are not in the realm of the flesh but are in the realm of the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, they do not belong to Christ. 10 But if Christ is in you, then even though your body is subject to death because of sin, the Spirit gives life because of righteousness. 11 And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you. – Romans 8:9-11
Read All Romans 8 (maybe even 7 and 9 to get better context)
(Remembering that you are the temple of God and the Father – who is IN Christ now also dwells in you.) Consider the following questions in a real-world context and how it applies to your life, how are you changed by knowing and believing this?
QN-1. If Christ truely dwells and lives IN YOU, what does that mean?
QN-2. What impact does it have if Gods Spirit Lives IN YOU?
QN-3. With this revelation in mind (presence of God dwelling In You) what is stopping you living in the spirit and presence of God?
Think of it like this – Christ is a free gift (No cost to you) and The Holy Spirit is a free Gift (No cost to you) If both these gifts were sitting in front of you with your names were written on them, would you not unwrap both? Its very simple.. We accept Christ and his Salvation, but often forget His powerful Spirit and His Presence IN our lives (The person of the Holy Spirit) is still sitting in front of us wrapped and sealed up with our names on it!
