As I read day 8 of The @YouVersion Plan Unshakable Hope: Building Our Lives On The Promises Of God. I loved the emphasis put on defining who The Holy Spirit is.
May this be a good reminder to us.
The Holy Spirit is central to the life of the Christian.
He is a life-giving force to creation and, more significantly, a midwife of new birth for the believer (see John 3:7–8).
He enters the believer upon confession of faith (see Ephesians 1:13).
His power produces attributes and fruit: “love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control” (Galatians 5:22–23).
He provides gifts to the believer: wisdom, teaching, healing, prophecy, and preaching, among others.
The apostle Paul declared, “All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he distributes them to each one, just as he determines” (1 Corinthians 12:11).
We have access to the same hand that pushed the rock from the tomb.
The same power that stirred the still heart of Christ can stir your flagging faith.
The same strength that put Satan on his heels can, and will, defeat Satan in your life.
So make it your aim to sense, see, and hear the Spirit of God.
May we fix our heart on the promise of the power of the Holy Spirit.
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts of the Apostles 1:8 NLT
But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things! Galatians 5:22-23 NLT
