The Holy Spirit is often misunderstood in Christian circles. This is a particularly notable shortfall in the body of Christ. We must be familiar with the person of the Holy Spirit and how He acts both in the Old and New Testaments. If we are truly born again we have the Holy Spirit in us. Every day we have the choice to allow the Holy Spirit to have more control or less control over our lives. For far too long we have decided to focus on the carnal rather than the spiritual – even the carnality of attempting to walk out a righteous spirituality in our own strength. Awake now to the unfathomable blessing of God being for you and with you. Be inspired by the Lord who came for you and loves you beyond compare. Know the Holy Spirit and seek the wisdom and discernment that He provides.
“But now I go away to Him who sent Me, and none of you asks Me, ‘Where are You going?’ But because I have said these things to you, sorrow has filled your heart. Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you. And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: of sin, because they do not believe in Me; of righteousness, because I go to My Father and you see Me no more; of judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.
“I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you. All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He will take of Mine and declare it to you.
