Beloved of Christ Jesus, to live an extraordinary life, we must choose a life that is righteous, that is, a life full of the Holy Spirit and not drunk with wine: “…for that is debauchery; but be filled with the Spirit.” (Ephesians 5:18 RSV) God knows that man has many weaknesses and limitations. That is why He gave us His Spirit so that we who are weak may have the strength and the ability, as the life of a Christian is a struggle, a fight and a battle against sin. Even though this is the inner conﬂict that we experience, God’s Word reminds us in Galatians 5:18; “But when you are directed by the Spirit, you are not under obligation to the law of Moses.” This clearly shows that the sin in the ﬂesh (carnality) cannot be countered with our own strength.
Sin could only be destroyed by the power of the Holy Spirit when we surrender our bodies to the Lord to be His temple. When we present our bodies to God as a living sacrifice and holy, His Spirit will fill us and work in us until every aspect of our life (body, soul and spirit) is completely under the control of the Holy Spirit. This is what we call walk by the Holy Spirit. When we walk by the Holy Spirit, our lives will bear the fruit of the Spirit, and this is the beginning of entering a victorious life and full of miracles. Beloved of Christ Jesus, remember! Without the power of the Holy Spirit we are not able to win the struggles of this life. May our Lord Jesus Christ bless you all. Amen !
