The Holy Spirit is your best friend
Good evening! When you think of the many mercies of Jesus, what comes to mind? He died for your sins? He gave authority to the disciples to preach the Good News? He gave is his Body and Blood in the earthly form bread and wine to eat? All this matter! But the best gift is sending the Love between him and God the Father to us! That Love is manifested in by the Third Person in the Trinity, The Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit is there as our aid in today’s world. He is there to convict us of our wrong doings and bring us closer to God. He is there to help open our minds when we read scripture, pray more deeply and meditate on what the Lord is trying to say to each of us. He is the promised help that Jesus Himself said would come ACTS 2: 1-5 When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them. Now there were staying in Jerusalem God-fearing Jews from every nation under heaven. They had the physical and mental strength to go out and preach to the world! All their minds were open to the mission of God and they all wanted to full fill the mission.
When we truly love someone, we don’t want to hurt them or offend them. We care about them and really want to go out of our way to help that person. The Holy Spirit is our Guild on earth to teach us how to love God more. He is here to warn us of the dangers we are in, wither it be physical danger or spiritual dangers. If we can be quiet and do our best to listen to what the Lord thy God is telling us, then we can build ourselves into a more deep, loving relationship with our creator.
How often to we invoke the Holy Spirit? When you look at everything that happens in the new testament after the four gospels, you see a living church that is very active. Many Miracles are manifested for the Glory of Jesus Christ to show how much he loves you. Many of the Christian’s were able to witness healings, have a deeper participation in the community and be able to grow more deeply for Christ. They even had the strength to stand up the evil of the time and be willing to be martyred for Jesus. But now in the year 2018, how come we don’t see these works and wonders as they did in the early 1st century?
Over time as our society changes and new technology has came into play, many feel it is irrelevant nowadays. Faith comes by listening and the will of God. When we pray, we should as the God the Holy Spirit to open our hearts to be able to listen to his calling. We need to give thanks to him who gave is life. We must keep Christ centered in our existence. Even if we are busy with family, life and work. We can call on the Lord quietly in our hearts and ask for his peace.
Just like a good friend, we need to call on him. We need to invite him when we read the bible, eat dinner with our families and even if we are afraid of going into a big surgery, he is their waiting for us to call him. He is waiting to bring the love of God the father and son into all our lives. Let is not neglect best friend, but to invite him to the world. I closed this short blog with this prayer…
Heavenly Father, I thank you for everything you have given to the world. I thank you Lord for creating humanity in your own image. Please guild us into loving you and worshipping you as our Personal father. Jesus Thank you for keeping your promise and sending the Holy Spirit into the world. We ask that he open our hearts to end violence, stop bigotry and hatred from spreading all over the world. We ask the you heal the ones who are sick, give strength to the dying and give faith to the unbelievers who do not yet know you. May you Mercy and peace come upon this earth as you brought an Olive Branch to the Ark as a sign of God’s infinite mercy. We ask this in your mighty Name God, Amen!
