the Spirit Factor: Undeserved Certainty

www.EastView.Org Pastor Dave Ens
Not much in life can we be certain about. Are the Bombers going to win? Is yellow round or square? Will our investments give us a return?
God is in the business of change Eph 1: 13-14 God has given us a seal (signet) (engagement ring) of certainty. Homefree. Future promise changes what we do today. The guarantee of certainty. Gen 1 The spirit of God. Created life. From chaos to order. Ezekiel was told to prophesy for the bones to stand up. And they do. Mary was told the Spirit would impregnate her. It did.
Isaiah 11 from a stump God will bring life.

We love the fact that the Spirit gives us a promise for the future but we forget that he also enables us to live a Christlike life.
We can't live that by ourselves.
A nail gun with all the nails and parts does nothing unless it has the pneuma in it. You could use it as a hammer but eventually it would be destroyed. Only when used as intended will it perform as expected the way it was made to work.
Mario said he had every opportunity to live right, but without the Spirit he failed. Now he walks in the Spirit.
Rom 8:5-9 the Spirit of God dwells in you.
Embrace the Spirit in your life. It will change you.
