Daily Devotional – Grafted into the Body of Christ

By on January 18, 2022

Our scripture for the Daily Devotional today is taken from 1 Corinthians 6:14-17. The Holy Spirit fell upon those who waited on the Lord in the upper room. From that time, the Holy Spirit has dwelt within each of us grafting our hearts and minds with the heart of the Father.

By his power God raised the Lord from the dead, and he will raise us also. 15 Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ himself? Shall I then take the members of Christ and unite them with a prostitute? Never! 16 Do you not know that he who unites himself with a prostitute is one with her in body? For it is said, “The two will become one flesh.”[b] 17 But whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit.”[c]

United with God in Spirit

If you have surrendered your life to God, you are no longer your own person. You have acknowledged that God has purchased you with the blood of Jesus. We are told to repent of our sin and be filled by the Holy Spirit.

Each day, God will draw near to us, whispering His will and purposes into our hearts. By His Spirit, He will speak to our spirit grafting us into the tree of life. Branches attached to the tree, the Holy Spirit will bring forth fruit in our lives. The fruit will honor and bring glory to God.

 Let us truly surrender to God and His leading. Let us be malleable and teachable as we take on the character of the living God.

Let’s Pray

Dear Father, 

Thank you for choosing me and pulling me into Your body. Fill me, Father, with Your Spirit. Bind me to You so that I may be Your hands and feet into this world.

In Jesus Name,

Amen
