The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, he will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you.
When we lived in Louisiana our kids attended a Christian school that loved to host a Fall Festival which our kids loved to attend. One of the games they had to play was where you tossed ping pong balls into little glass bowls with goldfish in them. If you were able to get a ping pong ball in the bowls where the fish were then you won the goldfish.
My son actually landed a ball in a bowl with a fish on the first attempt. He was so excited and this started a 7yr relationship with his new goldfish he appropriately named “speedo” because it swam really fast.
One dreadful morning I woke up early and noticed Speedo was not in his bowl. I thought he had met his fate and my wife had flushed him down the toilet, but upon closer inspection, I noticed him laying on the floor lifeless and white on one side. He jumped out of his bowl during the middle of the night and when I found him I thought he was gone. I knew how much my son loved this fish so I quickly washed him off in the sink and then began to do “fish CPR”. After a few minutes of this the fish began to show signs of life and went on to live several more years.
As Christ followers, God has brought life back to us...His Spirit not only gives life to us each day, but we will experience this life forever in eternity!! Have you allowed God to bring new life to you? Are you depending upon His life-giving Spirit to have all of you? Allow God to bring you life as you focus all you are on Him today.
