Whenever the word oxygen is mentioned, what comes to your mind? The process of breathing in fresh air; to keep the body alive. Spiritual oxygen similarly, means breathing in the fresh and cleansed life of God while exhaling the bad sinful air. While the normal oxygen we breath in is natural, the oxygen under study is a spiritual exercise that helps us to walk in God’s love and forgiveness.
Spiritual oxygen ensures no sin is retained in the heart rather; every sin committed is confessed immediately and paves way for the Spirit of God to remain in our hearts. It is therefore important that, as a Christian, no sin should be left unconfessed in your life. As soon as you discover that you have sinned against God, be quick to confess them to God and ask for forgiveness. As you do that, believe in your heart that your sins are forgiven and never give in to the condemnation of satan. This will enable you to maintain a pure heart always before God.
Most times, this exercise falls short because, Satan usually brings discouragement in the heart of a believer to feel rejected and condemned before God as a result of a particular sin committed. See this, in 1John 1:9, the bible clearly states that, “If we confess our sins, he (God) is faithful and just, and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness”
The Holy Spirit does not stay in a sinful abode because; He is of a purer eyes than to behold evil. (Habakuk 1:13) This makes it very important that your life should present the right place for Him to dwell. Exhale sin from your heart, breathe in the Spirit of God by faith, and remain alive in God.
