THE HOLY SPIRIT WITHIN US

THE HOLY SPIRIT WITHIN US

1 Corinthians 6:19 (NKJV) Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?

It always amazes me that God, by His Spirit, dwells in us.  In the Old Covenant, God’s Spirit came upon people, but never dwelled within them.  Yet here we are, born again, new creations in Christ, and the All-Powerful, Holy Spirit lives in us!

In John 14, Jesus tells us that the Holy Spirit will be with us and in us.  The Amplified version shows us all the different things that He will do within us.  Look at this passage:

John 14:16-17, “And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, and Standby), that He may remain with you forever— 17 the Spirit of Truth, Whom the world cannot receive (welcome, take to its heart), because it does not see Him or know and recognize Him. But you know and recognize Him, for He lives with you [constantly] and will be in you.”

Wow!  That is seven different works within us!  So today, look at these different ministries of the Holy Spirit, and let Him move in your life to help you.  He is not there just to take up room.  He is there to be your Comforter, Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, and Standby.  Let Him be all that He wants to be, in you!

Confession: Today, I am going to let the Holy Spirit live big inside of me.  Today, I am going to become more God inside-minded, and let God teach me of the seven-fold ministry of the Holy Spirit.
