“If anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His.” Romans 8:9 [See also verses 7, 8, and 14.]

Not only gross wickedness — but even a carnal mind and “the friendship of this world, is enmity against God” (James 4:4, Philippians 3:18-19). But how do I know that I have the Spirit of Christ?

I have prayed for Him earnestly; this cannot be in vain (Luke 11:13). He works hatred of and sorrow for sin. He rebukes me, comforts me, and urges me to Christ and to prayer. This is His abiding witness, built upon the word of God, which no man of this world can have but even the weakest believer enjoys. Having this privilege, I draw nigh, in the spirit of adoption, and fix my firm confidence in the parental care of the Almighty. Faith cannot be deceived when its foundations are fixed on the Rock of Ages.

My soul, the Spirit of Christ always convinces of the need of Christ, unfolds the suitability of Christ, leads the soul to Christ, causes it to renounce everything for Christ, to build for salvation alone on Christ, and makes the man like Christ.

  • Have you these proofs that the Spirit of Christ is in you?
  • Do you need Him, approve of Him, flee to Him, trust in Him, and daily pray and strive to be like Him?

If so, the Spirit of Christ is in you.

Be Ready Always...

to give a reason for the Hope that you have (1 Peter 3:15).  When you can’t share the gospel with your words, share it by leaving tracts that tell people about God's grace.

When leaving a tract, always be diligent to pray about the short gospel message. Pray that it be found by someone who is in need of Jesus’ saving grace, and pray that the person will have a tender heart and open ears to receive the gift Jesus desires to give them.  

By the power of the Holy Spirit, even a small tract can help in turning a broken sinner from darkness to light.
