“And the Spirit of LORD will come upon thee, and thou shall prophesy with them, and shalt be turned into another man” (1 Samuel 10:6)
The importance of the Holy Spirit’s ministry in the Church can never be over emphasized. Jesus and the Father are in Heaven but the Holy Spirit is with us here, and He reveals the Father and Jesus to us. You can’t live an effective Christian life except through the Holy Spirit. No wonder the Lord Jesus commanded His disciples to remain in Jerusalem until they were endued with the power of the Spirit (Acts 1:4). They needed the power of the Holy Ghost to be effective witnesses of the Gospel of Christ.
The apostle Peter, who in timidity and fear, denied Jesus before a young girl, became so bold after he had received the Spirit. When the opportunity came to testify about Christ, he boldly preached the Word and won about three thousand souls to Christ at once: “Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls” (Acts 2:41). The Holy Spirit made the difference in his life!
The same Holy Spirit is all you need for a successful and fruitful journey in your walk with God and through life! He’ll make the difference in your life if you’ll learn to recognize Him and walk with Him! He’ll take you all the way, and become to you what you need Him to be!
