God the Holy Spirit – 17

The Holy Spirit of God is the blessed Spirit of Truth

Colossians 3:2-5 Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.
For you are dead, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.
When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.
Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry.

It is only the Spirit of truth that can set our minds on things above. Our natural minds are fixed on things on earth. But when the Spirit enters our lives, we die. We are dead, and the Spirit of Christ lives in us. Our minds are set on things above.

Not only are we dead but that means that all of the members of our old life are also dead. They must die because they are idolatry. They cannot live in a life controlled by the indwelling Holy Spirit of almighty God.

Only one God can live in us. Almighty God will not share us with idols. He reigns supreme in our lives and His Spirit keeps our minds set on things above where Christ sits at the right hand of God the Father.

Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you for the power of your Holy Spirit to be our life. We died and then we were restored to life by your Spirit – reborn and regenerated by your Holy Spirit to eternal life. What an amazing life. Life with you. Life with you in control. Life – real life – the life of your Holy Spirit now the power to live life. Our Spirit-filled life is hidden with your Son in You.
Amen
