Day 27 – Moving closer to understanding

1 Corinthians 15:3-4 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures.

Here’s the thing, if Christ Jesus our Lord functioned and committed Himself to live in full obedience to the scriptures, then how much more us. Serious, if Jesus Himself lived to honor His Father, don’t you think we should as well? I vote yes! How do we know if we are living in such a way that brings glory to God?  Through obeying to the best of our ability, the Holy Scriptures. Our lives should attempt to capture the essence of scripture and guess what, it can’t be done without the help of the Holy Spirit. He is the one who helps us live out the Word. Through Him and through His powerful gifts at work in us, we can have the power to live in obedience to scripture. I know what you’re thinking and no I’m not talking about perfection. There is no such thing as perfect people, just people trying to live in a way that honors God. Lean then upon the Spirit of the Living God and ask Him to help you live your faith in such a way that honors God. When we do, we move that much closer to fully understand the ultimate purposes for the Gifts of the Spirit.
