Move

Re:Verse passage – Romans 8:5-11 (day three)

“…life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you.”

Later in Romans, Paul will say that one of the most spiritual things you can do is to move your body in ways that serve others and stand with them: a hand opening in generosity, an ear listening to stories of suffering, a voice lifting in solidarity with those who face oppression. The Lord said that if you want to find a person’s heart, follow the treasure. Paul relates a similar sentiment: If you want to take an honest look at what you’re devoted to, notice what you do with your body. The Holy Spirit is exhaling onto your body the ability to move like Jesus in the world.

One thought on “Move”

  1. “If you want to take an honest look at what you’re devoted to, notice what you do with your body.” Such a powerful statement. As I go about my day, I will think about this and identify ways to refocus on God so that my actions reflect this.
