Why are so many people ‘Christians’ but live such a spirit-less life?
Its hard question to answer, I cant say I am a shining example of a ‘spirit filled person’ but im starting notice how much we all forget about God who lives within us. I was reminded in this clip how much the Holy Spirit is a real person, a part of God that is daily in our lives. I tend to lean on my own understanding rather than seeking God and allowing the Holy Spirit to help me… counsel me… refine me! I think its time for change…, are you interested in change? Have a read and watch this below.
SOME AREN’T AWARE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.
While Apollos was at Corinth, Paul took the road through the interior and arrived at Ephesus. There he found some disciples 2 and asked them, “Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?” They answered, “No, we have not even heard that there is a Holy Spirit.” Acts 19:1-3
SOME RESIST THE HOLY SPIRIT.
“You stiff-necked people, with uncircumcised hearts and ears! You are just like your fathers: You always resist the Holy Spirit! Acts 7:51
THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL
16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever… John 14:16 KJV
13 But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. John 16:13
“Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, ‘This is the way; walk in it.’” Isaiah 30:21
8 When (the Spirit) comes, he will convict the world of guilt in regard to sin and righteousness and judgment: John 16:8
Basically we learnt to look for God ‘the Holy Spirit’ in our daily circumstances, not just presume its our conscience or our self awareness identifying the needs and wants of others. We decided in our small group that if we allow God to be more involved in our situations, and we listened more to the Holy Spirit we might start to know God more intimately. I am thinking the more we get to know the Holy Spirits groanings and directions, the closer we will be understanding how God wants to direct your walk and guide you. What a belessing it would be to understand what Gods wants you to do in each situation! It truely would be like having God directing your every move and decision.. what a wonderful hope and prayer.
