“The spirit of the Lord is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me; he has sent me to bring good news to the oppressed, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and to release to the prisoners…” Isaiah 61:1
There is barely little or nothing, you can do as Christian when you don’t have the Holy Spirit in you life. You can say you are a believer, and that you have accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as you Lord, and personal saviour, but I want you to understand that Christianity does not just end there.
Christianity means, having the image of Christ in you. And for you to get to that point where you can boldly declare you have run the race, then you need the spirit of God upon your life.
Please understand that Christianity is a race. You can’t embark on this journey all by yourself. Along the way, there is every tendency that you can get weary, famished, tired, worn out, or even thinking of making a U-turn. This is normal because you are human; you have the flesh that covers you, and the blood that runs in your veins.
For you to be able to complete this race, you need God’s strength, His help, and all that you want from Him to put you through. And this is why the Holy Spirit of God comes in.
Oh, what a sweet experience, having the spirit of God, taking total control of you! When the He comes upon you, He will change you, remould you, transform you, cleanses up all the mess you have, and bring out the new you, the remarkable new you that the entire world will see the changes in you.
Like my previous mail, I will repeat again, you are not saved to stay that way, but you are saved to preach the gospel by any means, to make known to those in your world, and outside of it, how God manifest in your life.
And to bring out that conviction, that perfect message, that resounding delivery to people, then you need the spirit of God, because part of His duties, is to bring tremendous inner conviction to anyone you preach to.
With the Holy Spirit in your life, your words is able to proclaim peace to a frustrated soul, you can change any life, you can bring hope to the lost, you can transform a dead marriage, and bring to alive again. You can do more, and more for God, and not just that, you as well, will notice the indescribable transformation in every aspect of your life.
Believe me, you are the embodiment of the Holy Spirit, and you must be ready to produce unspeakable positive reports for the glory of God, and for your Christian calling.
