Romans 8:10

English Standard Version (ESV)

“10 But if Christ is in you, although the body is dead because of sin, the Spirit is life because of righteousness.”

Through the ministry of the Spirit, Christ is actually in the believer. It is amazing to think of the Lord of life and glory dwelling in our bodies, especially when we remember that these bodies are subject to death because of sin.

I guess that’s one area I really fail in, I don’t know why I don’t think of it as often as I should, especially during temptation. That Christ is living in me, the hope of all there is future and present.

To much dependence on self, trying to do good works, struggling and losing to often. I’m going to try and be more conscious of the fact and the faith of this principle working more consciously in my life. Hopefully you are doing better at it than myself.

Two good reasons to read the Old Testament frequently; 1, it’s a great list of failures, people being human, honestly just like you and me, prone to wander; and 2, you need to remember that 98% of time when the New Testament makes a reference to Scriptures, it is referring to the Old Testament.
