Everything changed when the Holy Spirit came. No longer was the Holy spirit available just to a few people at certain times, there was the potential for everyone to be filled with the Holy Spirit, anyone who would receive Jesus and believe in his death and resurrection. The Holy spirit is God and for all that repent and ask, God comes and lives on the inside of us. This means we can live a free life that is lead by the Spirit and delighted by the heart of God.
I baptise you with water for repentance, but he who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptise you with the Holy Spirit and fire. His winnowing fork is in his hand, and he will clear his threshing floor and gather his wheat into the barn, but the chaff he will burn with unquenchable fire.”. (Matthew 3 v 11-12).
What difference does the Holy Spirit make in your life? Did you give time to hear his voice speaking to you, leading and guiding you? What distractions make hearing him difficult and what can you do to tune your Spiritual ears in to hear? The verse above is sobering as it tells us of a time when it will be too late to choose Jesus and those that don’t will be lost in hell. Ask the Holy Spirit to give you a passion for those that don’t know him, and then be bold in how you live your life and love others.
