11 In this new life, it doesn’t matter if you are a Jew or a Gentile, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbaric, uncivilized, slave, or free. Christ is all that matters, and he lives in all of us. — Col. 3:11 NLT
God’s Holy Spirit abides in us and we abide in Christ. We are now filled with and fully clothed by God Himself. Therefore, we have access to the same attributes as Christ Jesus Himself. Just as we accepted God’s Gift of salvation, we can accept (access) His attributes or we can use our own vain imaginations. The question is this: What thoughts are we going to allow to control our words and actions? “Wrong” or “right” thinking, that is the question. Will we continue to let our old fleshly nature control our thoughts and actions or will we allow the Holy Spirit to do His work in us? Will we allow Him to teach us and guide us into all truth? Will we allow Him to sanctify us on a daily basis? The flesh says “no” so we must put to death the flesh and follow after the Spirit. Jesus wants to be Lord over every area of our lives, not just part. The journey begins when we accept Jesus as our Savior and continues until we meet our Savior. It is onward and upward and it gets sweeter every day.
