Shoppers go to the grocery store to get the items they need to last them through the week or month. We as Christians go to Church for the same reason, to get our spiritual feeding, edification and equipping. However, just as a shopper stops being one after he or she goes through the checkout, som Christians checkout their faith when they leave the Church. If we are to be the influential light to the world that Jesus called us to be. What the world needs is faithful Christians who will live checked-in lives. When someone checks in to a hotel they’re planning to stay awhile, so it should be with our faith and the Holy Spirit. We should desire the presence, peace, and power to stay with us, helping us in all that we do. If we allow the Spirit a place of residence in our lives giving Him the freedom to work through us, we can impact and influence those around us in unimaginable ways. No one can dispute the fact that this world needs change, but that change is only possible by a move of the Holy Spirit and the body of Christ. According to 2 Corinthians 3:6 “ He has made us competent to be ministers of a new covenant, not of the letter, but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit produces life.” By the power of the Holy Spirit in us God has made us to be ready ministers of the gospel, are you willing to live checked-in , so He can use you to change your world?
