SUNDAY 5TH MARCH.,2017
TOPIC: HOLY SPIRIT
TEXT: John 14:15-27 “If ye love me, keep my commandments. And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because….”
The Holy Spirit is our comforter, our counselor, the one who convicts, the one who encourages, the third, and for us here on earth, the most tangible member of the trinity. It’s a wonder why we don’t actively desire on a daily basis more of Him! The Holy Spirit is not a force, or a “feeling”, but rather a person, who desires to be active in our lives daily. I believe something shifts in our lives when we welcome the Holy Spirit into every situation. We shouldn’t just welcome the Spirit into our church gatherings, but instead we should welcome the Spirit into our thoughts, conversations, workplaces, our lives at home, our marriages, and relationships as well.
Jesus gave us an invitation to ask for the Holy Spirit, ask him to come and invade every circumstance in our lives, for the presence of the Holy Spirit removes all fear, shame, and slavery. Consider this truth, where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is FREEDOM. Freedom from sin, freedom from burdens, freedom from shame, and freedom from chains! Invite the Holy Spirit into your present circumstance, wherever you are right now. Invite him to flood the atmosphere of your heart, your home, your car, your office etc, wherever that may be, and watch as things shift!
