The Holy Spirit in us!

The Holy Spirit in us!

The Bible proclaims that he who has faith in God will receive citizenship in Heaven.  This profound truth is found in the book of Philippians 3:20.  Those who have no spiritual connection with God will perish.  God makes promises (found in the Bible) and keeps them.  His Gospel is hid in the human heart.  God cannot lie, His word is immutable and we can take refuge in Him.  The Bible says this hope is the anchor of the soul.  (Read Hebrews 6:18-19)
 
God exists and His Spirit provides living proof to us who believe.  Christmas is not about the presents (materialism), but about God’s humble Son who was sent forth for the propitiation of our sin. Many people may not have experiences the power of the Holy Spirit.  Are you acquainted with the Holy Spirit?  How do you know?
 
Christ came for everyone but not all received Him.  See Romans chapter 10 for more about those who reject God.  Many folks have not experienced the fullness of what God offers us -  a new life, an everlasting spirit-filled life.  This takes place the moment we truly believe and place out trust in God.  At that moment, we get filled with His Spirit (the Bible says sealed - Ephesians 1:13).   We don’t experience the (Holy) Spirit until we repent and surrender to God.  

Jesus said (as is recorded in the book of John):  I am the way, the truth and the life and no one comes to the Father except by me!  I can confidently say there is no other way to God except through Jesus Christ or God’s word would not be true!  Christ is the Messiah and He will be returning again.
 
Letting go, and fully surrendering to God and receiving the Holy Spirit is what connects us to have a relationship with God.  Are we carnal, livng in the flesh?  Or do we have the Holy Spirit in us?   We find truth by seeking truth.   And we can begin to understand truth as we become a new person in Christ.
 
Romans 12:1-2  says not to be conformed to this world….that is not to live a worldly life.  The world cannot offer you what God has to offer you.  God offers us eternal life.  Satan offers you a different plan and your soul is invited.  But we must protect ourself by putting on the full armor of God.  Ephesians 6:10-17
 
So why would God allow anyone to suffer, to go through trials and tribulations?  (see the book of James for the answer)  The Bible says we can expect to suffer, and as we do, we come to appreciate what our Lord went through.  It is often through suffering that we better understand life’s meaning and find our own purpose in life. 

To perish means we choose not to put our faith in God.  Putting your faith in Christ is a wise decision.  Jesus’ going to the Cross was for everyone.  As we are transformed, our friends, interests and passions will change.  Are ye in Christ?
 
I wish you the Happiest of Holidays.  Take a step of faith and believe in Jesus and see what God has in store for you!  Peace be with you.
