When Jesus ascended into heaven, He left us with something special. The Holy Spirit is a gift God has given His children so that we can be empowered by God Himself! If Jesus Christ Himself was right next to you all day long, how would you live? If you knew you had Jesus to back you up in every decision you made, how would your career change? If the body of the Son of God followed you around, what would you say? Would you have that lingering health problem? Would you have those bouts of depression and fear?
That’s why the Holy Spirit was sent. The Bible says God won’t leave us or forsake us (Hebrews 13:5). He’s with us ALL THE TIME! How? Through the Holy Spirit. There are so many wonderful benefits to being filled with the Holy Spirit. I would even dare to say life without the Holy Spirit will be a life without power! A life where Christianity is a drag and uphill battle. If you’ve tried to overcome sin in your life but feel it’s an impossibility, try the Holy Spirit!
Being filled with the Holy Spirit is one of the most important decisions a believer can make after getting saved and it is a decision. For too long the Holy Spirit has been mocked and ridiculed. Speaking in tongues is looked at as something for weirdos or people who think they’re more “holier than thou”. Within the next few days, let’s tackle why it’s the BEST decision you’ll ever make and how to get filled with this wonderful power.
