The Life of the Spirit

John 6:63 The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you are spirit and they are life.

When I came across this passage, I wondered what is the Spirit and what is the flesh? How can the Spirit give life? Then, I continued my eyes on the Bible and read, “The words I have spoken to you are spirit and they are life.” The words of Jesus Christ were spirit and they were life. Jesus Christ through the process of emptying, denying, and fully obeying gave us life. That life of Jesus was the Spirit that gave life to everyone even today.

Then, what about the flesh? What were the actions of the flesh? They were eating, drinking, and sleeping. People in this era look here and there to achieve success and live in a materialistic comfortable world.

Startled by the life of Jesus, I realized that I was running in a cycle that would bring everyone to success. I worried how I was to feed my family, bring success in my life, and be happy with the life I would gain through success in my flesh.

Many times, we worry about what to eat, what to wear, what to drink, but on this day, let us focus on the life of the Spirit Jesus lived that brought revival to our life.
