Romans 14:17, John 16:13-15 (NIV)
For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. *But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth…. He will bring glory to me by taking from what is mine and making it known to you. All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will take from what is mine and make it known to you.
One of the major assignments of the Holy Spirit is to glorify Christ in your life. In Acts 3:13, Peter described the healing of the lame man by the beautiful gate as an act of God glorifying Christ. This means that God glorifies Christ by manifesting the power and glory of Christ in our lives. Know that the Holy Spirit is ready to empower you to experience whatever you believe will bring glory to Christ in your life.
When Jesus referred, in our text above, to the Spirit of God taking from what belongs to Him and making it known to us, He was not only referring to the Spirit of God giving us revelation knowledge about God alone. He was also referring to the Spirit of God taking His life and power and manifesting it in our lives so that we would be effective witnesses for Him. Like Mary, the Spirit of God will overshadow you and cause the power and glory of Christ to manifest in your life.
You will not struggle to live the above only kingdom of God life because of the power of the Holy Spirit that is available to you in Christ. Just as the Holy Spirit quickened Christ and raised Him from the dead, He will also quicken every area of your life and cause you to walk in the life and power of the kingdom of God. He will produce the righteousness, peace and joy of God’s Kingdom in your life. Yield yourself to Him and you will experience God’s kingdom power in your life.
PRAYER FOCUS: Dear Lord, I thank you for the power of your Spirit at work in my life. I declare in faith that the Holy Spirit is glorifying Christ in me.
