Daily Bread 6/17/2023


    Daily Bread – June 17, 2023 (The Seventh Day – Genesis 2:1-3) Ephesians 2:18 – For through Him, we are both brought by one Spirit to the Father. The Holy Spirit Reveals All Father Has Provided In Jesus Jesus purified us with His blood and destroyed the claims of Satan so the Holy Spirit could come and work the miracle of salvation. By the resurrection of Jesus from the dead, the power of death was destroyed (Hebrews 2:14; 1 John 3:8). By the blood of Jesus, the Holy Spirit created a new man, and raised up from the ruins of our lives a holy temple where He could dwell (1 Corinthians 6:15-19, 3:16; Ephesians 2:20-22). Now, being raised up together with Him, we are seated together with Him in the Heavenly realm (Ephesians 2:6; Colossians 3:1-2; Romans 6:5). Now we are the new creation, the circumcision that worships God in the Spirit (Philippians 3:3; Colossians 2:11; John 4:23-24). By the Holy Spirit, we receive everything that belongs to Jesus (John 16:13-15). Through the ministry of the Holy Spirit, we come to know and understand all of the things of God and learn to function in all of His ways (1 Corinthians 2:9-10). All of the things that have been freely given to us by God through Jesus Christ are revealed by the Holy Spirit. That which eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart understood is made known to us by the Spirit so we might fully participate with the will of the Father. The Holy Spirit guides us as we follow Him into this Heavenly realm and interact with Him there. As we interact with Him, we come to know the things that are freely given, and receive all of God’s goodness and glory (Ephesians 3:18-20). He fills us with the love of the Father, the love of Christ Jesus, the joy of the Lord, and the peace of the Prince of Peace (Romans 14:17, 8:14-16; John 17:22; Galatians 5:22-23). Christ Jesus dwells in us by the Spirit He has given to us, and He is also revealed through our lives by what the Holy Spirit does through us (John 14:17-19; 1 John 3:24). The Holy Spirit leads us into the presence of the Father, and there we are strengthened, taught of God, and continually matured by His power. In His presence, we go from glory to glory, beholding His face – because we have received all of His fullness (2 Corinthians 3:17-18, 4:6; John 1:16, 17:22-23). Blessings, Pastor Mark Spitsbergen
