The Holy Spirit and You

26 Dec

Andrew Murray wrote about receiving the Holy Spirit: “Just as the Lord Jesus gave the Holy Spirit to Peter, He is willing to give the Holy Spirit to you. Are you willing to receive Him? Are you willing to give up yourself entirely as an empty, helpless vessel, to receive the power of the Holy Spirit, to live, to dwell, and to work in you every day?”

    “Are you willing to give up yourself entirely as an empty, helpless vessel, to receive the power of the Holy Spirit, to live, to dwell, and to work in you every day?”

    Wow! There is a question for the ages! God is demanding an answer from me on the very question. I am learning our doctrines and traditions have fallen short of what the Father desires of us. Truth has not changed. It is man’s interpretation of Truth that has fallen short. Holy Spirit clearly reveals and teaches us what God meant by what He said in the Word….and man is without excuse (Ro 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: )

    Good thoughts. Great challenge!!

      From a human point of view, it would seem to be a daunting task to forsake oneself completely for the Spirit’s influence to use you. If we try to function under our own power, it is a daunting task, but our surrender to the Spirit allows him to work. We are then led day by day to be a better cup to hold his living water that others may drink. Before long, we are surprised by the depth and breadth of all he does with us.

        Amen. God does the leading, guiding, and direction. All He asks of us is to ‘follow’ His lead. But to ‘follow’ Him, we can’t be ‘following’ the flesh. Again, amen. Good thoughts. Timely!
