Count Yourself Alive

28 Aug

Walking in the spirit is a continuous process, one step at a time.  It means that for every new situation into which every new step brings you, you must reckon positively with the Holy Spirit, to keep the flesh in the place of death.  I want to emphasize the need to reckon positively…  The surest way of reckoning yourself to be dead to sin (that old Adamic nature), is to reckon yourself alive in Jesus Christ and be utterly dependent on him. He then will take care of the consequences.

    Wow! I love that the focus is not on being dead to something but being alive to and in Someone – Him who IS Life! It’s all about this Life, this Wonderful Divine Person, who is inside of us! That fills me with joy!
