Why Do You Want the Holy Spirit?
Good evening everyone, we are on a journey together and I am truly excited!
We are Called to Love God
James 4:3 says, “You ask and do not receive, because you ask wrongly, to spend it on your passions.”
Why do we desire the Holy Spirit? Why do we want more of God? Are we like Simon the magician that wants to purchase the Holy Spirit and show the world the power it has. Are we hung up on the miracles, healings and the supernatural of Holy Spirit. Is it for our own power, betterment and purposes? Or is it because we want to experience all that God has for us? Is it because you love the church and God’s people and want to be a better servant for the body of Christ.?
We have to examine ourselves and our motives on why we want Holy Spirit.
“The Christian’s life in all its aspects—intellectual and ethical, devotional and relational, up surging in worship and outgoing in witness—is supernatural; only the Spirit can initiate and sustain it. So apart from him, not only will there be no lively believers and no lively congregations, there will be no believers and no congregations at all.” (J.I. Packer)
Father God, I pray that God would empower us so radically that we will get no glory! That people will see our work and give God the glory!
In Jesus Name Amen!
