Mortal Bodies

Something to think about.

Mortal Bodies

11 If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you. Romans 8:11 (ESV)

This is another of those, wow, what did he just say verses.  If the Spirit of power that raised Jesus from the grave dwells in us, that same Spirit will give life to our mortal bodies. Focus on two words “mortal bodies” the same spirit that raised Jesus from the grave is living in you, to give life to your mortal body. He is not referring to your resurrected body he is specifically referring to your mortal body.  If you understand this verse the only question left is how do I plug into this power? How do we allow the Spirit of power living in us to give life to our mortal bodies?

About Ruben

I am the owner of a custom furniture shop in Orlando, Florida. I had a heart attack back in 2010. As a result of complications from the heart attack I almost died . The road to recovery took about eighteen months and even now I still have issues to deal with. As a result of almost dying many things have changed. Most notably my concept of time. By that I mean that I am acutely aware of my mortality, not morbidly but realistically. Before the heart attack I thought I would make it to 70's, 80'S or as my mother into 90's but now I realize everyday is a gift. I don't take it for granted. That is why I write I have something to say and I want to say it, before I can't say it anymore.
