When God lives and breathes in you (and he does, as surely as he did in Jesus), you are delivered from that dead life. With his Spirit living in you, your body will be as alive as Christ’s!—Romans 8:11 The Message
Vitality of life is yours in the Spirit! You have this abundance of life not only in eternity but also right now on earth. And you did nothing to deserve this—God chose to freely offer it to you.
In agreement with the Father and the Son, the Holy Spirit has come to make His residence in us. Beware of passivity toward this gift of His presence; it will cause you to miss what God longs to impart to you. Choose to engage the Spirit. Allow Him to breathe vivacity into you. Busyness and weariness will fade as His life refreshes you. Let the Spirit reawaken you to the goodness and satisfaction found only in Him!
