Between My Ears

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

God’s compassion is boundless. As I grow older, my brain becomes quieter. Yes, for now, my ability to recall life as it happens is still as effective as ever. But what I’ve discovered is that, in the quiet, I hear God’s still voice (1 Kings 19:12). I recall blessings from long ago. Blessings from God’s hand.

My life is built upon those blessings. Where would I be without God’s forgiveness? Had God not extended His compassion to me, and called me, you would see a life shipwrecked, tangled in rocky crags of this lonely, wicked world. But my life isn’t that because it isn’t mine; it belongs to Jesus. I am a man rescued by Jesus Christ, my Lord, and Savior. And that same Spirit will do the same, and more, in you.
