May we embrace all that God has for us, may we embrace the perfection or completion that God has given us as we are now not only body, not only the soul that gives life to the body, but we are now spiritually alive again just as the times of Adam and Eve before the fall.
We now have all the tools necessary to embrace a holy life, separated from the pollution of the world. In our moral imperfection and even as we have to deal with the reality of our sinful nature and our inner struggles, because of our love for God, we avoid those things that facilitate sin and embrace those things that facilitate us living sanctified lives.
May God help us and bless us all with the grace manifested not only in salvation, but also in sanctification and in the glorious baptism of the Holy Ghost. A baptism that not only is evident by speaking in tongues, but by the visible fruit of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. 24 And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Galatians 5:22-25 (NKJV)
