Please Note: We will be sharing shorter weekly teaching due to the festive season; however, we will continue to keep it impactful.
For anyone to enter Heaven, such a person must be born again. What does it mean to be born again? Looking at Romans 10:9 we see that it is through believing in the heart and confessing with the mouth the Lord Jesus Christ that one is born again. It is important that we relate this to the world around us, but we can’t do this by our own ability; that’s why Jesus had given us the Holy Spirit; to help us through divine insight and ability to relate the truth of this to our world.
There is things that the Holy Spirit do in us, through us, and for us to help us reach our world.; and we have a responsibility to search out and find out what those things are so that we can be effective in the things the Lord has charged us with. One of the most important things is that the Holy Spirit has become one with the born again Christian to bring God’s plan for the world to pass; that’s bringing about knowledge of the free salvation we can enjoy through Jesus Christ finished works.
The most important thing we as Christians need to know in our walk with Christ is that the Holy Spirit is in our lives, part of our very being; and He is one with us to do and will as God has planned before the foundations of this world has been formed. We must also be conscious of this; and when we are conscious of this, that’s when we die to ourselves and let the Spirit live through us to accomplish that which the Lord has called us to do. When the world looks at Christians, it is sad to know that they see inconsistency; and that’s due to the fact that we don’t always walk in the consciousness of Who we have living and abiding in us. This is so important as even everything that Jesus had done in His ministry here on was done through and by the Holy Spirit.
Getting a hold of the truth is vital to every Christian; for the devil will run a mock in your life when you lack truth. In all that you do, get a hold of the truth. Truth unknown is powerless, but truth known is dynamic in its working. How you live in that truth will determine the level the glory of God in your life.
So then; Who is the Holy Spirit in the Christian’s life; and more importantly: Who is the Holy Spirit to the world through a Christian’s life? The Holy Spirit is the fullness of God; and He is bodily expressed to the world through those who had accepted Jesus Christ as there Lord and Savoir. This is the very reason why the Lord tells us in Matthew 6:33 that we are to seek the Kingdom of God and His righteousness… The importance of that is; when we seek the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, all God’s blessings will be added unto us. God so wants to bless us, even more than what we are able to believe, more than what we are able to comprehend, and more than what we will ever realise. The reasons for this goes far beyond us; it goes to the ends of this world, and furthermore into eternity.
God wants to bless us that the lost world may see His glory at work in our lives; and through that, that they may turn unto Him for salvation through Jesus Christ. We can’t do this on our own accord, we must realise that the Father had given us His Spirit as He had given His Son Jesus Christ His Spirit, to accomplish all that He had called us to do. Each one of us has a responsibility to search out the scripture and find out what the Holy Spirit had come to do in us, through us, and for us; so that at the end we can be sure to be all God had intend us to be. Make it your duty for 2017 to search out the scripture and find out Who the Holy Spirit is meant to be for you; so you may take full advantage of His abilities in you – starting today. We will be sharing a lot more on this topic in 2017; till then, have a blessed festive season.
