God’s Spirit is in You

Acts 2:2-4 Suddenly a noise came from heaven. It sounded like a strong wind blowing. This noise filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw something that looked like flames of fire. The flames were separated and stood over each person there. They were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they began to speak different languages. The Holy Spirit was giving them the power to do this.

When you hear these two words – Holy Spirit – what’s the first thing that pops into your mind? Do you know what I find so scary about that question? For some people, the answer is, nothing at all. They don’t associate God’s Spirit with anything much, really. And that’s scary!

One of the most amazing things about being a Christian is having the Holy Spirit dwelling in you. Just stop and think about that for a minute. Father, Son and Holy Spirit, three Persons, one God.

So when He dwells in you, that’s the God who created the universe, the Jesus who died and rose again for you, the same Holy Spirit who filled the disciples on Pentecost – it’s that God dwelling in you. God Himself!

Acts 2:2-4 Suddenly a noise came from heaven. It sounded like a strong wind blowing. This noise filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw something that looked like flames of fire. The flames were separated and stood over each person there. They were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they began to speak different languages. The Holy Spirit was giving them the power to do this.

A lot of people shy away from the Holy Spirit. He’s a bit harder to get a handle on. The Father? Yeah, we get that. The Son? We get that too. But the Holy Spirit? Not so easy. And yet, God the Holy Spirit brings such incredible power into our lives. The power to overcome sin. The power to do things we never imagined. The power to be all that God made us to be, for His glory.

A little later on, the Bible commands us to “go on being filled with the Holy Spirit” (Ephesians 5:18). And yet some Christians shy away from Him. Like that somehow makes sense!!

Go on being filled with the Holy Spirit!

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.

Hi Pastor Berni,
I really appreciate your message today about being filled with the Holy Spirit. I am always praying to God the Father through Jesus, each day to fill me with the power of the Holy Spirit, I really want the Holy Spirit to move mightily in my life so He can use me to advance His Kingdom and bring Glory to His name.
