《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to (brings me into) death? Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord! “ (Rom 7:24-25)
Meditation one: Once a Christian believed in the Lord, should that mean have been saved? How can we still be weak, sin, and fall? As far as justified by faith is concerned, we are saved by faith, but as far as sanctification is concerned, we are not yet quite enough until the Lord comes again. As long as we live in this world, the temptation from the world, our desire, and the devil’s deception can always affect us. If we still have to rely on the old selves, we will live a very hard way.
Meditation two: What is a normal life for Christians? That is a victorious life. Victory is not to fight by your own, but to trust in God. Through what the God our Father has accomplished for us through His son, we then be justified as righteous. Righteousness or victory is what the father did with us through the Holy Spirit. Christians have a new life because they believe in Christ, and they live a victorious life by the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
Prayer: God heavenly Father, thank You for giving me the assurance of victory. Please let the Holy Spirit live in my heart and help me to live a victorious life. “Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts.See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” (Psalm 139:23, 24) I pray in the precious name of Jesus, Amen!
