Did you fail all the last devotionals? Never mind,. There is good news! Yes friends. Help is waiting if we will choose to take advantage of it.
If you have asked Jesus to forgive your sins and come into your life, he sends the Holy Spirit to live in you. The Holy Spirit is called the helper, because that is what he is.
But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. (John 14:26, NIV)
Here is a small list of his part in our lives.
He shows us we are lost and condemned before God (John 16:8-11), then he gives us spiritual life when we choose Christ as our Saviour (Titus 3:5.) He comes to live in us! (1 Corinthians 6:19) and he places us in the family of God! (1 Corinthians 12:13).
He guarantees God in us. (2 Corinthians 1:22 and Ephesians 1:13, 4:30)
He gives each of us at least one specific way/gift so that we can help others.(Romans 12:6-8, 1 Corinthians 12:8-10, 28-30, 1 Peter 4:10)
He helps us grow the fruit of the Spirit in our lives (Galatians 5:22-23, Ephesians 5:9 – More about that tomorrow!)
And finally the Holy Spirit helps us do things that we cannot do on our own! (Ephesians 5:18)
Choose Jesus, friends and get all the help you need for each and every day.
Prayer-Father, we want to know you and experience everything you have for us. Please! Amen.
