SPIRIT in us


Job 33:4

King James Version

4 The spirit of God hath made me, 

and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life.

When the SPIRIT of GOD is in you, you will be a changed person.

You will want to know the Bible.

You will want to be born again.

You will want to know everything about JESUS.

You will want to know everything about GOD.

You will want to know GOD's truth.

You will want to obey GOD's will.

You will not want to sin anymore.

There is delight in obeying GOD's laws.

There is a desire to know how JESUS loved.

There is a looking forward to serving GOD each day.

There is gratitude for what SPIRIT teaches each moment.

There is awe at the power and magnificence of GOD.

There is understanding of the ways of the world.

There is the intention to share the gospel.

You will become a new person in CHRIST.

Ezekiel 11:19-20

King James Version

19 And I will give them one heart, 

and I will put a new spirit within you; 

and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, 

and will give them an heart of flesh:

20 That they may walk in my statutes, 

and keep mine ordinances, 

and do them: 

and they shall be my people, 

and I will be their God.

Romans 6:6

King James Version

6 Knowing this, 

that our old man is crucified with him, 

that the body of sin might be destroyed, 

that henceforth we should not serve sin.

Romans 13:14

King James Version

14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, 

and make not provision for the flesh, 

to fulfil the lusts thereof.

2 Corinthians 3:18

King James Version

18 But we all, 

with open face beholding as in a glass 

the glory of the Lord, 

are changed into the same image from glory to glory, 

even as by the Spirit of the Lord.

2 Corinthians 4:16

King James Version

16 For which cause we faint not; 

but though our outward man perish, 

yet the inward man is renewed day by day.

2 Corinthians 5:17

King James Version

17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, 

he is a new creature: 

old things are passed away; 


all things are become new.

Galatians 5:16

King James Version

16 This I say then, 

Walk in the Spirit, 

and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.

Galatians 5:22-26

King James Version

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, 

joy, peace, longsuffering, 

gentleness, goodness, faith,

23 Meekness, temperance: 

against such there is no law.

24 And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh 

with the affections and lusts.

25 If we live in the Spirit, 

let us also walk in the Spirit.

26 Let us not be desirous of vain glory, 

provoking one another, 

envying one another.

Ephesians 2:13-16

King James Version

13 But now in Christ Jesus 

ye who sometimes were far off 

are made nigh by the blood of Christ.

14 For he is our peace, 

who hath made both one, 

and hath broken down 

the middle wall of partition between us;

15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, 

even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; 

for to make in himself of twain one new man, 

so making peace;

16 And that he might reconcile both unto God 

in one body by the cross, 

having slain the enmity thereby:

Ephesians 4:24

King James Version

24 And that ye put on the new man, 

which after God is created in righteousness 

and true holiness.

Colossians 1:11

King James Version

11 Strengthened with all might, 

according to his glorious power, 

unto all patience and longsuffering 

with joyfulness;

Colossians 3:10

King James Version

10 And have put on the new man, 

which is renewed in knowledge 

after the image of him that created him:

1 John 3:9

King James Version

9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; 

for his seed remaineth in him: 

and he cannot sin, 

because he is born of God.

1 John 3:24

King James Version

24 And he that keepeth his commandments 

dwelleth in him, and he in him. 

And hereby we know that he abideth in us, 

by the Spirit which he hath given us.

A born again is naturally drawn to Scripture.

That's how he comes to know GOD's laws.

Once he knows, he shall never turn to his old ways again.

Hebrews 10:26

King James Version

26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received 

the knowledge of the truth, 

there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,

Only because there is now a deep awareness, and gratitude, at being saved from sin.

How can anyone turn back to the old ways after that?

Especially after you have tasted GOD's mercy.
