As the glorified Jesus Christ finds a habitation within us, a life-giving river of the Spirit of God gushes from our innermost being. “My words are Spirit, and they are life...the word of God is living and energetic, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit...” John, in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, saw Jesus Christ, “his voice as the sound of many waters...and out of his mouth went a sharp two-edged sword” (Revelation 1:15-16). The same Spirit of God who strengthens the inner man weakens the outer man. The same Spirit of God which empowers the new creation man devastates the old creation man. The same Spirit of God communicates the wisdom of God and confounds the carnal mind. The same Spirit who anointed Jesus to heal the sick, raise the dead, and cast out demons, led Jesus to the cross. This same Spirit of God, burns in us the outworking of all that Jesus accomplished on the Cross.

“Father God…Draw us to walk on the narrow path of your will that this same Spirit might burn a path through our soul that your life might be released. Lord Jesus, we want to know you…we long for your appearing…quicken our mortal bodies that we might fully redeem the time we have been given. We love you Lord and we desire your presence above all else.”
