His Spirit – Preparation
August 31, 2007
The earth was formless and empty, and darkness covered the deep waters. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters.
His Spirit made the heavens beautiful, and his power pierced the gliding serpent.
It is God who gives us, along with you, the ability to stand firm for Christ. He has commissioned us, And He has identified us as his own by placing the Holy Spirit in our hearts as the first installment of everything He will give us.
2 Corinthians 1:21 & 22
Surely it is God’s Spirit within people, the breath of the Almighty within them, that makes them intelligent.
Clearly, you are a letter from Christ prepared by us. It is written not with pen and ink, but the the Spirit of the living God. It is carved not on stone, but on human hearts.
2 Corinthians 3:3
And all of us [whoever turns to the Lord] had that veil removed so that we can be mirrors that brightly reflect the glory of the Lord. And as the Spirit of the Lord works within us, we become more and more like Him and reflect His glory even more.
2 Corinthians 3:18
God Himself has prepared us for this, and as a guarantee, he has given us His Holy Spirit.
2 Corinthians 5:5
