To me, the freakiest part about being a Christian is that God — the creator of the universe — comes to live IN you. The Bible says:
Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? (1 Corinthians 6:19)
That means that God’s power is available to us mere earthlings 24/7/365.25 (includes leap years).
The Bible catalogs all the amazing things we can expect if we let God act in our lives. #1 on that list? LOVE:
The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace … (Galatians 5:22)
Put another way, God wants to give us a heart transplant. He says:
I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. (Ezekiel 36:26)
Let’s let God crack open our stony hearts and unleash the power of the Holy Spirit so that we can love the people around us today.
