We were created in the image of God. This means we have the potential to choose to live like God. Jesus revealed this as He came in the form of man and lived like God on the earth. He made it possible for us to be redeemed from the power of sin so that we could become like Him. This great miracle happens when we are born again of the Spirit. He comes to live in us by His Spirit and help us become like Him. Our spirit is redeemed and we are being transformed in our soul to be like Him. This is a life long process and few walk in it. Many lose their first love and go back to living in the flesh. This is why many are sick and fail to live the promised abundant life.
God did it all for us. We need to tap into His promises of love and live in them. This requires a radical change from a walk according to the flesh to a walk according to the Spirit. Many are stuck in the letter of the word and do not know the life in the word. God’s word has power to change lives, to heal and restore. All these benefits are accessed through His Spirit in us. However the church has failed to teach these truths and therefore the people remain sick and poor. The only way out of this dilemma is to walk in the Spirit.
To walk in the Spirit is to be centred in our spirit and not in our flesh. We can choose to walk according to the demands of our flesh or according to the leading of the Holy Spirit. When we live in the Spirit we are able to transcend the demands of the flesh. God has made a way for us to overcome all the challenges of the flesh. We have to choose who we will follow. When we choose to follow the Holy Spirit, He will guide us to the abundant life promised. The devils cannot harass us in His presence. We operate in a different realm, the realm of the spirit. Every bondage gets loosened and we are set free. We will walk like Jesus on earth as we set our heart on Him. Today choose to walk by the Holy Spirit and live.
