The gift of the Holy Spirit // 05-12-17

“Each of you must repent of your sins and turn to God, and be baptised in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. Then you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.” Acts ‭2:38‬ ‭NLT‬‬

God really does want to lavish gifts on us and none more so than the gift of His Spirit, His supernatural presence living and working in me!! Believing in Jesus and accepting what He has done is a great thing to do but He wants me to now live this new life fuelled by His wisdom and His strength! That is only possible if I turn away from the old, let go of the labels of my past and walk in my new identity as His much loved child. I might not understand everything I go through but wow, I certainly know who is with me and who I now belong to! Trying to live out my old life and new life at the same time is a recipe for frustration. Compromise never delivers God’s best! So Lord, I turn to you again today, fill me afresh, help me to walk in your ways that I might have and enjoy real life, amen
