The Holy Spirit

Luke 24:48-49

“48 You are witnesses of these things. 49 I am going to send you what my Father has promised; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high.”

The Disciples were told by Jesus to stay in Jerusalem and await the coming of the Holy Spirit.  The Holy Spirit did come, and gave the Disciples the power they would need for the lives they were to lead after the ascension of Christ.

The Holy Spirit is crucial in the life of every Christian, even today.  The Holy Spirit leads us and guides us into an ever deepening relationship with God.  The Apostle Paul told Christians never to quench the Holy Spirit (1 Thessalonians 5:19).  We quench the Holy Spirit when we fail to listen, when we fail to be guided, when we fail to act.

To be effective witnesses through our words, our actions and the way we live our lives, we must open our hearts to the voice of the Holy Spirit.

May the Holy Spirit fill us all with the desire to know the one true God.

Rev. Eric Lanier
