Quickened By The Spirit!

Blessed Monday morning to you friends.

Today, we are going to look at several verses that will bless you and will renew your mind to what we already possess.  Let’s get a good foundation laid so we can build on this be strong in what we believe.  We are going to look at the word “quicken” or “quickened”.  

Ephesians 2:1 And you He made alive (quickened) who were dead in trespasses and sins.   

Ephesians 2:5 Even when we were dead in trespasses and sins, He made us alive (quickened) together with Christ, (by grace you have been saved).

Colossians 2:13 And you, being dead in your trespasses, He has made alive (quickened) together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses.

All these verses tell us that we were dead in our spirits which means we were in darkness and needed to be quickened, or made alive, think about that.  We just celebrated the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus, the Christ, the Anointed One!  We have to realize that this quickening happened over two thousand years ago before we were ever thought of in this world, but we were thought of by Him, They all saw us, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  The plan of salvation was about to be introduced when Jesus came to this earth to be The Man, The last Adam to save all of mankind. 

In the same way that our spirit is being made alive, quickened, so is our bodies quickened, but let’s look at a couple more verses. 

I Peter 3:18 For Christ also suffered once for sins, the Just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive, quickened by the Spirit.   This is how Jesus was raised from the dead, He was quickened by the Spirit!

So, what does “quicken/quickened” mean?  Quicken, make alive, give life, caused to live, to arouse and invigorate, to restore to life, revitalize. 

This week, let the Holy Spirit show you hwo to live the quickened, invigorated and restored life that Christ has made available to you. He had you in mind as this was being accomplished in the spirit realm so it could be a reality in the natural realm.

Remember, you are Loved, you are Righteous, and you are His!
