Step 5: Recognize that kingdom living is the inheritance of the Christian disciple: we will look at this principle in more detail as this blog moves forward.  As believers we are called to the high standard of Jesus Christ and are empowered to live that life out moment to moment.

Therefore, from now on, we regard no one according to the flesh.  Even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know Him thus no longer (because we are no longer living in the flesh, but in the Spirit).  Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new (2 Corinthians 5:16-17, NKJV).

Commit yourself to being a vessel in which the Holy Spirit not only abides (which is the privilege of every Believer) but one in which the Holy Spirit can operate in a clean and unrestrained manner (available to the person who is poor in spirit).  Be emptied of the garbage so the Holy Spirit is free to operate as He wants in your life.
