MONTHLY DEVOTIONAL FOR 20th JULY

THE 20th OF JULY

WE HAVE ETERNAL LIFE IF THE HOLY SPIRIT LIVES IN US

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 8:11

How amazing it is to be God’s children! The life we have in Jesus is not only for here and now, but it extends beyond the grave. Life with Jesus is far more valuable, brighter, happier and easier than life lived without Him. We have true purpose and great reasons to make the most of our lives. Even when we go through hard times, we are not alone because Jesus lives in us, through the Holy Spirit, since we made Him our Lord. The Lord protects us, takes care of our needs and the Holy Spirit not only helps us, but He comforts and strengthens us.

As Jesus said in John 14:19, “Because I live, you shall live also.” Because of the new birth in Christ, that gave us a new spirit, as we continue to grow and mature spiritually, the Holy Spirit will bring life even to our bodies, as sin loses its grip over it, as we keep on living led by the Holy Spirit and not by the fallen carnal nature. Even our bodies that used to have so many evil passions and desires, continue to change for the better, becoming more and more like Jesus.

SUGGESTED PRAYER

Heavenly Father, Your plan for my life is so perfect. Your desire is to bring Your life into all of who I am. Please help me to live a holy, pure life, set aside for You, so that I will never go back to my old habits or ways of doing things. Please help me change all that is not yet right in me and to live to please You. Thank You so much for bringing Your life in me through the same Holy Spirit, that raised Jesus from the dead. Glory, honor, and praises to your Holy Name. Amen.
