Made Alive

Yesterday I spoke on being made alive. The Bible term for this on both sides of Christ is, quicken. God wants to quicken us, or make us alive through the power of the Holy Spirit. As a believer and more importantly a follower of Jesus the Messiah we have the presence of the Holy Spirit as He has come to make a home within us. The Bible though talks about there being an additional thing that happens in the lives of believers when we get tired of being tired.
Make me alive and quicken me should be as prevalent a request in your life as any. The God kind of life can only come from God quickening you. Don't accept so easily what is. Press in, press on and go further into what could be. Plainly, God has more for you. You can have it, but you must get to the more His way and not your own. Cry out this week and whenever you need a shot of His life, quicken me O Lord.
Maybe you are at a place in your life where you are tired of the status quo. Maybe you are at a place in your life where you just want it settled that you are going all the way with the Lord. Take this opportunity and ask God for His life to invade your life. Pray as David did, quicken me Lord.
If you'd like to follow a line of thought regarding these matters and the Holy Spirit in general check out the weekly teachings tab at www.crosspointok.org or you can find the same teachings at iTunes by searching Pastor James Greggs or CROSSPOINT. Church, Vinita, OK.
I welcome your thoughts. Keep the faith and wear the crown. Holla.

P. James
