The Holy Spirit 🕊
“While he was with them, he commanded them not to leave Jerusalem, but to wait for the Father’s promise. “Which,” he said, “you have heard me speak about; for John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit in a few days.” So when they had come together, they asked him, “Lord, are you restoring the kingdom to Israel at this time?” He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or periods that the Father has set by his own authority. But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come on you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
As a believer, it is important to listen to the Holy Spirit and be led by Him (Romans 8:13). He is the closest we will become to God, while in our earthly temple (body). Without the Holy Spirit, it is impossible to bear spiritual fruit the way God desires us to (Galatians 5:22-23). When we gave our heart and life to God, He gave us the Holy Spirit as the down payment (Ephesians 1:14-16). With the Holy Spirit, we will be able to fight the good fight of faith and complete the race with endurance and Godliness, and, eventually, be crowned as a “good and faithful servant” by our Father in Heaven. What is better than THAT!? It is TRULY a blessing and a privilege to be daughter/son of the ALMIGHTY LORD and SAVIOR.
