If anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His.
Romans 8:9, nkjv
In the Garden of Eden, God had been with man.
In the Old Testament, God had appearedto man.
In the Tabernacle, God had dwelt among men.
In the history of Israel, God had spokenthrough man.
In the Gospels, God was visible as Man.
But at Pentecost, God became available to dwell in man!
Until that Pentecost two thousand years ago, people were saved by faith in Jesus Christ, even though they didn’t know His Name. Their faith was demonstrated by the obedient sacrifices they made at the temple as they symbolically looked forward to the cross. Since Pentecost, we are still saved by faith in Jesus Christ. But our faith looks back to His sacrifice, which has already been made on our behalf at the cross. Additionally, we now have the experience of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit Who seals our “rebirth,” or “conversion.” Do you bear God’s “Seal” of authentic conversion?

What are the secrets to a life of impact? Daniel achieved greatness in the eyes of his contemporaries, in the eyes of history, and most importantly, in the eyes of God. His faith did not waver as he faced his critics, as he served new kings in power, or even as he confronted hungry lions. How can we achieve that kind of faith today? Twenty intentional, key choices made all the difference. Daniel’s choices can be ours, such as:
• The choice to listen
• The choice to forgive
• The choice to pray
