{12 Eternal Gifts} Let my Spirit…

Let my spirit fill you.

1 Corinthians 3:16

Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit lives in you?

God longs to fill us with His Spirit.  It is a gift He gives us by faith in His holy Son as our Lord and Savior.  It is a gift that began before the beginning of time, came to earth in a miraculous manager birth, and manifested in our lives through the cross of Christ, bringing about the fulfillment of the Scriptures and giving us access to eternal life.

The gift of God’s spirit dwelling within us is where our life really begins.

Reflection Questions

Is the gift of the Holy Spirit one you’ve already opened?  If not, take a minute to consider what this might look like here.

Do you feel the dwelling of the Holy Spirit?  Why or not?

What could be blocking the presence of Spirit working in your life?  Think sin.  Then repent.

What would it look like for the Spirit of God to lead you through this Christmas chaos?

Is the gift of the Spirit one you’d like to share throughout this Christmas season?

Take a few sacred minutes to listen to this remarkable song from Casting Crowns and let it become your prayer for the Spirit Wind to fill your life…

 

Ezekiel 37

The Valley of Dry Bones

1 The hand of the LORD was upon me, and he brought me out by the Spirit of the LORD and set me in the middle of a valley; it was full of bones. 2 He led me back and forth among them, and I saw a great many bones on the floor of the valley, bones that were very dry. 3He asked me, “Son of man, can these bones live?”   I said, “O Sovereign LORD, you alone know.”

4 Then he said to me, “Prophesy to these bones and say to them, ‘Dry bones, hear the word of the LORD! 5 This is what the Sovereign LORD says to these bones: I will make breathenter you, and you will come to life. 6 I will attach tendons to you and make flesh come upon you and cover you with skin; I will put breath in you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the LORD.’”

7 So I prophesied as I was commanded. And as I was prophesying, there was a noise, a rattling sound, and the bones came together, bone to bone. 8 I looked, and tendons and flesh appeared on them and skin covered them, but there was no breath in them.

9 Then he said to me, “Prophesy to the breath; prophesy, son of man, and say to it, ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe into these slain, that they may live.’” 10 So I prophesied as he commanded me, and breath entered them; they came to life and stood up on their feet—a vast army.

11 Then he said to me: “Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel. They say, ‘Our bones are dried up and our hope is gone; we are cut off.’ 12 Therefore prophesy and say to them: ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: O my people, I am going to open your graves and bring you up from them; I will bring you back to the land of Israel. 13 Then you, my people, will know that I am the LORD, when I open your graves and bring you up from them. 14 I will put my Spirit in you and you will live, and I will settle you in your own land. Then you will know that I the LORD have spoken, and I have done it, declares the LORD.’”
