Jesus Is and Gives Life!

Easter crossAnd 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

There is life through the Spirit!   Easter shows us just how powerful the Spirit that lives within us is.  Conquering death, the same Spirit who raised Jesus, also gives us life.

Scripture speaks of our earthly bodies being made whole – the resurrection of the body.  Though they are broken and decay here on earth, God has power to restore creation.  I have trouble wrapping my mind around all that.  But, this scripture says it happens because of “his Spirit which lives within us.”

And I think that our bodies even now benefit from his Spirit which lives within us.  We are able to have more joy.  Live with more discipline. Trust God.  Be at peace in our hearts and minds.  Put aside fear. And the list goes on.
