5/28 Things of the Spirit

Rom 8:5 For those who are according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit.

The Spirit of God has a certain agenda and disposition. It is opposed to the flesh which has its own nature. In the faith you have this Spirit’s disposition. Yielding to the Spirit, you perform as the Spirit would on any occasion. You are the physical representation of the will of God.

This is tremendous. You are actually the expression of the will of God in your very actions. What he wants to do is expressed through you perfectly as you yield. Maybe you thought it would be more dramatic, with sounds from Heaven or dramatic Hollywood music. But it is in your life without the seeming fantastic. The Spirit is simply performing acts of love and mercy through you.

You will know this by the love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness and self-control. This is it. You will see it as you say “Yes” to the Spirit. It is manifest through you. Yield from moment to moment knowing the Spirit of God is expressing himself through you for the extension of the gospel.
