Don’t attempt to follow Jesus and achieve your purpose apart from the Spirit of God. Jesus promised that the Holy Spirit would come to lead us into all truth.
But in fact, it is best for you that I go away, because if I don’t, the Advocate won’t come. If I do go away, then I will send him to you. There is so much more I want to tell you, but you can’t bear it now. When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all truth. John 16:7:12-13
God wants closeness, which is both friendship and partnership. As you invite God to fill you with His Spirit, you’ll receive a great sense of the presence of God and His love for you.
May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all. 2 Corinthians 13:14
The Holy Spirt also empowers us to be effective witnesses. A witness is one who not only tells the truth, but also lives the truth. As His witnesses, the Holy Spirit helps us to do what we cannot do on our own – to boldly proclaim and live out the truth about God.
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. Acts 1:8
Ask God to activate the gift of the Holy Spirit in your life and live a life filled with the Holy Spirit.
Here is a prayer for you to pray if you want to receive the Holy Spirit and take this important spiritual step.
Holy Spirit I welcome you into my life, I receive you now. Come and be close to me.
Pray through me. Be my friend. Be my comforter. Be my guide.
Thank you Holy Spirit. I want to learn how to be closer to you.
In Jesus’ name, Amen
