October 2nd – Romans 8:14

Romans 8:14

When we receive Jesus as our Savior, many wonderful things begin to happen. First God sends us His Holy Spirit to help, guide, teach, and comfort us. Then the Spirit, because of God’s grace towards us, begins to get to work. He takes the crumbling, broken, bumpy roads of sin in our lives, and clears out a new, smooth, glorious path leading to God. A path that turns aside from the old, carnal, fleshly manner in which we formerly walked. A new path that sends us in a direction of righteousness, leaving our old sin nature behind. But this can only happen if we submit to the promptings and leading of the Spirit. For no change will come unless we allow the Spirit to begin the work of transforming us into the image and likeness of Christ. A work that will brings us into a greater, more intimate relationship with our Father in heaven above.
