(Christians Don’t Live By Blood But By The Spirit)

TO THE BIBLE: Romans 8:11 NIV
“…If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you.”

Before you were born again, your body lived by blood, and that’s in accordance with Leviticus 17:11, which says, “…the life of the flesh is in the blood….” But, praise God, from the moment you were born again and received the Holy Spirit, you received God’s kind of life that isn’t dependent on blood for sustenance!

Now, you can better appreciate what the Bible says in John 1:12-13: “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name, who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.”

Being born of God, you’re not human but divine! The old system of having life in your body through your blood ceased to be; it was replaced by the life of the Holy Spirit.

No wonder Jesus said in Mark 16:18, “…if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them….” There’s no poison that gets into your system through the blood vessels that’s potent enough to wreak havoc.

This is because the life in you is indestructible—it’s the life of the Holy Spirit! Those who do not realise this truth will continually live ordinary lives, being susceptible to sickness, disease, infirmities, failure, lack, and the corrupting effects of this present world of darkness.

So, refuse to think, talk, act, or live like a mere human being; otherwise, you’ll suffer what humans suffer.

Don’t let the lamentation of the Psalmist in Psalm 82:5-7 describe your life. It says, “They do not know, nor do they understand; they walk about in darkness; all the foundations of the earth are unstable.

I said, “You are gods, and all of you are children of the Most High. But you shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.” Rather, live the God-life—the divine life—because you’re born of God!

Go Deeper
Luke 10:19; Romans 8:10-11 TPT

I live above this world and its systems, above sickness, disease, and the corrupting forces of this present world of darkness. The power of the Spirit that raised Christ from the dead has vitalised and given life to my physical body. I live the transcendent life of glory in Christ Jesus. Amen!

Say to yourself throughout today, “I’m just like my heavenly Father; I’m divine. I don’t live by blood but by the life of God’s Spirit in me.”
