Like A Sponge

He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life.  Titus 3:5-6

I was born one way, but years later, I was re-born as a brand-new person.  I didn’t look that different on the outside, but I was completely transformed on the inside. The enemy couldn’t see any traces of my sins.  All signs of former bondage and proof of his ownership ceased to exist. The chains fell away along with my sin-stained soul.   

In that beautiful moment of my legal spiritual adoption, the Holy Spirit was poured out, seeping into every spiritual pore.  My thirsty soul absorbed Him like a sponge, so thirsty was I for everything that He was.  I have called you and you are mine,” He said.  I came to life as each word was spoken deliberately.  His Spirit became my new source of energy.  No longer would I have to generate a reservoir of gritty resolve to do right and live right. The power of His Spirit had moved inside, flowing like a river.  

For I will pour water on the thirsty land, and streams on the dry ground; I will pour out my Spirit on your offspring, and my blessing on your descendants. Isaiah 44:3

Jesus aches to see the dead come to life and for the chance to present each one to His Father, faultless. 

Touch the blinded spiritual eyes in every member of our families.  Let them see Your glory and find You to be more desirable than gold. Touch their inner landscape so that it is transformed from impenetrable to porous, open to every part of the kingdom and the life You offer.  Defeat the enemy who pulls out all the stops to keep them stuck, blind, and unreceptive.  Display Your power and glory.  In Jesus name, Amen
