I am thankful that Jesus has given me a piece of His Holy Spirit to live and work inside of me. This is my identity IN CHRIST!
He promised this in John, when He said,
15 “If you love me, keep my commands. 16 And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— 17 the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept Him, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him. But you know Him, for He lives with you and will be in you. 18 I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. 19 Before long, the world will not see Me anymore, but you will see Me. Because I live, you also will live. 20 On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in Me, and I am in you. 21 Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.”
What is the evidence of Jesus' Spirit living inside of me? Galatians 5 tells us that the Spirit's fruit has these characteristics:
"So he said to me,
This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel:
‘Not by might nor by power,
but by my Spirit,’
says the LORD Almighty. "
