Receiving the Holy Spirit


John 16:7 states, "Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you."

In Luke 24:49 we read, "And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high."

While Christ was on earth he patiently worked with his disciples to explain to them a simple truth about his purpose. He reiterated many times that He would not always be with them in the flesh but would abide with them forever by His Spirit living in their hearts. After heeding Jesus instruction not to leave Jerusalem after His resurrection, the disciples and many others waited in an upper room and received the “Promise” of his Holy Spirit as detailed in the second chapter of the Book of Acts. 

This experience of receiving the Holy Spirit can be yours today. You must first make a decision you want to serve the Lord above anything and repent. Once you have truly forsaken your sins and repented, God will forgive you of all your sins. Once forgiven, you are then ready to receive the Holy Spirit. By simply asking in faith and totally committing your life to him, He will send His Holy spirit into your heart and life to abide with you forever. Give Jesus Christ a chance and trust Him today. You will be forever changed! 

Have a great week!
