March 14, 2019: SOAP #3388: Deuteronomy 25-27; Galatians 5

Scripture:  Galatians (NIV) 5:18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under law. 25 Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.

Observation:  Jesus said we must be 'born again.'  We need a new life source in our physicalbody.     

Application:  If we were talking about computers, I wouldsay that I needed a new operating system. I kept the old laptop.  What'sleft of the hair has changed colors; the eyes are still blue.  But when I was born again, a whole new operatingsystem was installed.  I am working tomake it the dominant system!  I have manyold programs that were accustomed to operating according to the old operatingsystem; I am still working on upgrading them to be used by my new system.  Some can make the switch; others need to beremoved and replaced with completely new programs.  Some programs are so full of the old operatingsystem that if left in the laptop, they would begin to infect the otherprograms.  They need to be uninstalledand deleted from the computer.  I amthankful that the new operating system has a great 'clean disk'capability!  

The new operating system has great uplink capability!  It can download vital information needed toprotect from viruses and make this laptop more beneficial to its new owner! 

The more I learn about this new operating system, the more grateful I am forthe change.  Even though it has been manyyears, I am still discovering the new exciting possibilities of having this newoperating system permanently installed. The blessing of having a continuous and instantaneous link to the throneroom is beyond description!  

Prayer:  Holy Spirit, what a great plan our HeavenlyFather had.  He knew that I would not beable to live as He desired, so He cleaned me up by the blood of Jesus and sentyou to live in me!  May you find me a gracioushost.  Amen
