Thought for Today - Have You Received the NEWNESS of the SPIRIT?

Thought for Today: 
The law kills – but the Spirit brings life.
The purpose of the law in the Old Testament was to show us that we were sinners and in need of a Savior. The Apostle Paul said that he was alive, but when the law came and showed him he was a sinner – he died.
We can see that in our own lives – without a speed limit and fines for speeding – we wouldn’t know speeding could kills us!
God wants us to know the Savior – Jesus. He sent His Only begotten Son to save us from our sins. Had He left us in our sins – we could never have a relationship with Him because He is holy and righteous.
With sin in our lives we can’t enter into God's presence.  But, because Jesus shed His blood to pay the price for our sins – we can be forgiven and made holy and righteous in God’s sight. The Father sees the Son when we are “IN CHRIST” – He doesn’t see our sin – He sees the sacrifice and payment Jesus paid for us!

Now, because of what Jesus did we can be "born-again – born of the Spirit.” …
