Understanding the Spirit

If you do not have the Spirit,
Does not belong to Jesus Christ;
But if Christ is living in you,
Be that your heart will remain true.

Your body is dead from the sin,
That has corrupted you within;
But your spirit is still alive,
Since it waits for Christ to arrive.

You have the approval of God,
Worshipping to honor and laud;
For the Spirit brought Jesus back,
For giving salvation we lack.

Jesus came back to live in you,
So that the Spirit could renew;
Your mortal body and revive,
Once again it can be alive.

We have been made a new creature,
No more in a corrupt nature;
But as long as you cheat and lie,
You are surely going to die.

So use your spiritual nature,
Put to death the evil creature;
That is living deep down inside,
And live for God as you abide.

As His child call Him Father,
As well as Christ as your Brother;
No longer slaves that leads to fear,
Knowing that your Father is near.
