One More Reason to Praise 

Description

In order to live the supernatural life which is available to us through the indwelling Holy Spirit, we must know our rights as children of God.

"His presence within us is God's guarantee that He really will give us all that He promised; and the Spirit's seal upon us means that God has already purchased us and that He guarantees to bring us to Himself. This is just one more reason for us to praise our glorious God" (Ephesians 1:14).

To me, this wonderful verse means that, as children of God, we have the ability to obey God's laws if we are filled continually with the Holy Spirit and refuse to obey the old evil nature within us.

In order to live the supernatural life which is available to us through the indwelling Holy Spirit, we must know our rights as children of God. We need to know our spiritual heritage. We must know how to draw upon the inexhaustible, supernatural resources of God's love, power, forgiveness and abundant grace.

The first step is to learn everything we can about God. We also need to know about the nature of man and why he behaves as he does. The best way to learn who God is, who man is and about our rights as children of God is to spend much time - even at the sacrifice of other needs and demands on our schedules - in reading, studying, memorizing and meditating on the Word of God, and in prayer and witnessing.

Paul wrote to the Christians at Rome, "For His Holy Spirit speaks to us deep in our hearts, and tells us that we really are God's children. And since we are His children, we will share His treasures - for all God gives to His Son Jesus is now ours too. But if we are to share His glory, we must also share His suffering" (Romans 8:16,17).

Bible Reading: Ephesians 1:15-23

TODAY'S ACTION POINT:  I will acknowledge God's presence, believe His promises and surrender to His special will for me, and thus will I praise Him throughout the day.
