The Spirit of Promise

Read

"And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, who will never leave you. He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth. The world cannot receive him, because it isn’t looking for him and doesn’t recognize him. But you know him, because he lives with you now and later will be in you." John 14:16-17

Reflect

Your life in Christ should be a Spirit-filled and Spirit-empowered life. The Holy Spirit is the One who brings you to Christ and keeps you in a relationship with Him. It is the presence of the Holy Spirit that guarantees the spiritual work started in your life will be completed.

Before His death on the cross and the ascension into heaven, Jesus promised that He would send the Holy Spirit. He assured the believers that they would receive power when the Holy Spirit arrived (Acts 1:8). This power gave them the courage to share His message throughout the world.

Respond

What would life be like without the Holy Spirit?

Thank the Lord today for His Spirit in you.
