A gift like no other

| | Comments (1)

Acts 1:1-11

In Acts 1:1-5 we see Jesus informing the disciples that they will soon be receiving the Holy Spirit in a new way ("you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit" verse 5). We actually see that in Acts 2. This is referred to as the day of Pentecost. It was pretty incredible and it changed the relationship Christ-followers would have with the Holy Spirit from that day forward. Now, the Holy Spirit indwells us immediately when we accept Christ as our Savior. The moment we surrender our lives to Christ, we get the benefit of the Holy Spirit living in us as a guide and helper. What an incredible gift.

Even so, if you're like me you probably don't sit around pondering or thinking about the Holy Spirit residing in you. I tend to take that for granted. So how can we change that? How do we take full advantage of the Holy Spirit (with all His power) residing in us? Tami W.

Knowing that the HOLY SPIRIT resides in me is a plus and it gives me the confidence that there is someone who loves me so much that is within me. He will always guide me, help me,comfort me and teach me.He will not leave me nor forsake me.
We can take full advantage of the HOLY SPIRIT by always communing and fellowship with HIM always,speaking to HIM in HIS language will even bring HIM more closer to us. And always listen to HIM because HE talks.Meanwhile,i desire the grace to hear HIM audibly,i love HIM so much,that i want to take full advantage of all HIS power residing in me.
