Romans 8:11 – “But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.” (NASB)
“Here it is!” While tracing wires in an older house, we needed to find the break in the line in order to get the outlets to work properly. We started at the first outlet that wasn't working and began to trace the wires back. With each outlet on the line, we found the same condition - no power. We kept tracing until we found ourselves at the electrical panel box. There within the source of the power, was a lose screw on one of the breakers, causing the entire line of outlets to not work properly. Today's verse speaks about the Holy Spirit and the source of power that raised Jesus from the dead. That same power is available to us if He lives within us. I can't help but think that sometimes in life we get our screws a little loose leaving us without a good connection to God's source of power. If we are not connected to the power source of the Holy Spirit, our outlets of service may not be working properly. Maybe we should check to make sure our screws aren't loose to see if we're working in full power for Christ.
