For John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.”
Acts 1:5 NET
The disciples had experienced so much in a short amount of time, Jesus’ death, Resurrection, many appearances and now this!
But the Holy Spirit was what Jesus promised. The Helper, Counselor, God Himself, sent by Jesus who would be with us and in us.
The same Spirit who raised Jesus from the dead would reside in His people!
Death could not hold Him. He is All Powerful! And now, if Jesus is your Lord and Savior, the Holy Spirit lives in you!
So what holds you back?
You hold yourself back. Because you don’t realize what is on the inside of you. You don’t realize the Holy Spirit’s power.
We all are guilty. It’s easier to see the physical than it is to see the spiritual.
But we need to understand that the spiritual is more real than the physical we see. This, the world, is all temporary! But the spiritual is forever.
This understanding comes by spending time in the Presence of God. This comes by surrounding yourself with the things of God! That’s it! There is no other way! There are no shortcuts! There is no special pill.
What is important to you? You will give yourself to what you feel is important!
Make Jesus the most important person in your life and let the Holy Spirit guide and lead you. You won’t go wrong!
Father, there are so many things that I can give my attention to, but what I really want is more of you! Help me Lord to see You and to walk in the power of the Holy Spirit more and more.
