Good Morning dear Friends ~

The Spirit’s Work of Freedom

spirit

We are all destined, designed, created to be free. But we forge chains for ourselves and each other, corrupting our freedom till it isn’t freedom anymore. Only someone who isn’t bound by the mess can free us from it. That’s where Christ comes in. And, after Christ arose, it’s where the Spirit comes in. The Spirit’s sent from Christ to humanity, blown on us by Jesus. The Spirit makes us able to take part in God’s work in the world. And makes it personal. The Gospel becomes mine to spread. The Kingdom becomes my vision for living. God’s hope for all becomes my hope for all. God’s sorrow over peoples’ situations and deeds becomes mine, too. If the Spirit has me, God is not distant but up-close and real. This new freedom isn’t something we ‘have’ or possess; it’s something that has us just as the Spirit does. The human spirit soars because of the Spirit; otherwise it is still bound to the ground.

 

My favorite is “If the Spirit has me, God is not distant but up-close and real.”

I am feeling this especially now in my life ~ after going through another round of liver problems, and having yet another tube inserted into me which I realize is for healing of the liver, but still having to deal with this ordeal all over again. ย I have become so much closer to God. ย I know this is the work of the Spirit, and for this I am truly grateful.

Blessings to you my dear friends.

Much love,

Rose
