DEVOTION: “And God has given us his Spirit as proof that we live in him and he in us.” – 1 John 4:13
So many verses in this book leave me at a loss for words. We are given the Spirit as proof that he lives in us.
Do you believe that? Do you believe that there’s the spirit of God living in you if you believe in Jesus?
I know. Seems like a crazy idea. Then….faith. Faith comes into play. Faith that this God loves us, sacrifices for us. Holds us and shows favor on us. That he is on our side. A father who loves his children and calls us His own.
If all of that is true, if he is this good, good father that we can rely on in the good times and the not so good times….
Then….doesn’t it make sense that his spirit lives in us to guide us and give us wisdom. Doesn’t it make sense that he might give us a helper who gives knowledge and counsel.
Hmmm. Yeah, it kind of does.
He lives in us. If we believe in Jesus and have realized him as our savior. He has left the counselor, the Holy Spirit for us.
Again, the love of the father does nothing but leave me….
