I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear. But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. He will glorify me because it is from me that he will receive what he will make known to you. All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will receive from me what he will make known to you.”
John 16:12-15 NIV
In our walk with the Lord we are not alone. We have the Spirit of God who we were given by the Father to stay with us forever. Jesus told His disciples that He had much more to say to them, but they couldn't bear all during that time; and then He introduced the Spirit of God that He will come to guide them into all the truth.
This Holy Spirit came to the church in the day of Pentecost and since that time He has been abiding among believers of all generations. He is the one who runs day to day activities of the church throughout the world; and enable every believer to walk in victory against the world. He is the one who teaches and help us to pray; and give us strength to overcome temptations.
He is the third person of the Godhead but not the least. He performs miracles, signs, and wonders throughout the world confirming the word of God to all who believe in Him. We have the gifts of Holy Spirit and the Ministries of the Spirit in the church. He is the one who gives to everyone has He desires; and without the Spirit of Jesus the church would be like any other social gathering.
This morning, I want to encourage you to give Holy Spirit a chance in your life. I know many Christian who pray in the name of Jesus, trusting the Father; but forget about the Spirit of God. Many traditional religions didn't give a room for the Spirit of God that's why miracles, signs and wonders ceased; and they concluded that those things were done away in the first church.
They continued worshiping the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ and forget the part of the Spirit of God. They didn't know that He is the one who would empower them to overcome sins and guide them in the truth of the word of God. Many lived miserable lives and defeated in every corner of life; because they didn't know that they needed the Spirit of God to enable them overcome.
You need the Spirit of God; the Church needs the fresh anointing of the Spirit of God. Allow Him to take control over your soul; He will change your life and make you whole. He will fill you with joy and help you to love the Lord in all the days of your life.
Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....
Dear Heavenly Father, I'm asking that You may send your Spirit inside of me. Come Holy Spirit and take control, hold me in your loving arms and make me whole. Wipe away all doubt and fear and take my pride, draw me to your love and keep me by your side. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
