Scripture – Observation – Application – Prayer
And God has given us his Spirit as proof that we live in him and he in us. (1 John 4:13 NLT)
More proof from God about our salvation. God gave us his Spirit so that we can know that He lives in us and we live in Him.
The Spirit of God is with us and in us. His Spirit produces love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, etc. in us as proof of our changed lives. This is a powerful passage. If there is no change, there is no proof. His Spirit produces change.
Father, help me to allow the Spirit to finish your work in me. Thank you for the assurance I have from your Spirit of your presence in me.
