GOD SO GOOD (Day 5) Last Day

Where The Spirit Of The Lord Is 
The Apostle Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians 3:17
… where the spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 
Paul did not follow Jesus during His earthly ministry. Instead, he spent his days persecuting people who followed Jesus. It wasn’t until years after Jesus’ death and resurrection that Paul was on the road to Damascus and had a supernatural encounter with Jesus that changed his life forever.  
This framework really enhances the meaning of the phrase, “where the spirit of the Lord is ...” because Paul was a living example of what could happen when the Spirit of the Lord intervenes. 
If the Spirit of the Lord could take someone like Paul—who spent his days trying to kill followers of Jesus—and transform him into one of the most influential voices in the early church and the author of most of our New Testament, then there truly is nothing God cannot do. 
When you are in Christ, you are not the sins you have committed, the person you once were, or the labels the world has thrown at you. When you follow Jesus, you are forgiven and the Holy Spirit comes to live inside of you. You are free, because where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
