Work of the Spirit

I have seen many things in the time that I have served the Lord. Wonderful things. Things that bear witness to His divinity. I never saw Him physically, I still have that to look forward to. I see instead the working of the Holy Spirit in the lives of believers and in the transformation of souls. Only God can do what I have seen.

But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. (John 14:26) KJV

Here Jesus gives us a glimpse of the Trinity. The Father glorifies the Son, Jesus came in human form, ministered and bore our sin, and the Holy Spirit comforts and helps us in our daily lives. The Holy Spirit bears witness to our hearts, convicts of sin, and leads us to the cross. My walk with God would be impossible without the Holy Spirit. It is He that leads me in the way I should go. I have seen Him bless an entire congregation of believers to a point where no one could speak. Not even the pastor. He was unable to deliver his sermon that week. We could only be in awe of a living God. This has happened on more than one occasion. Several times non Christians would come to me and ask me about God. They were eager to know! I did not even have to initiate it. That is the work of the Holy Spirit. That is the work of God! He has told me when to speak, when to be quiet, and when to look out for danger. He helps me to make decisions on a daily basis. He bears witness to my spirit when I meet another person that is a Christian as well. Somehow, we both know. He is always faithful, always a gentleman. He is always with me, and He wants to be with you too.

Father, I thank you for the work and ministry of the Holy Spirit. I know that your word never returns to you void. It always goes forth and accomplishes the purpose for which You have sent it forth. I ask now that you would stir the hearts and minds of those that read, and stir my heart and mind as well. I ask this, and thank You for it in the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
