Let’s take a look at what Jesus said to his disciple about the third person of the Trinity. Yes I said a person.
I know it could be odd thinking of the Holy Spirit as a person when I was first introduce to the idea it was odd to me too but with time I change perspective. The way I see it now is very simple I mean we don’t see Jesus but when we pray we believe that He is there then why not talk to the One who taught Jesus. I’m not saying Jesus is not here He is in the person of the Holy Spirit. I have good news and that is that you don’t have to think like me. By all mean I’m not saying I’m right either… it’s just matter of believing.
How important is the Holy Spirit?
Once when he was eating with them, he commanded them, “Do not leave Jerusalem until the Father sends you the gift He promised, as I told you before. John baptized with water, but in just a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.” Acts 1:4-5
This is Jesus telling his disciple hey guys I know you have walked with me quiet some time now but you still need the One the Holy Spirit. Why would Jesus tell his disciple to wait. He knew the importance of walking in the power of the Holy Spirit. He also waited to receive the Holy Spirit.
Follow me real quick here when Jesus was baptized by John at the Jordan River that’s when the spirit came upon him.
After his baptism, as Jesus came up out of the water, the heavens were opened and he saw the spirit of God descending like a dove and settling in him – Mat 3:16
But it didn’t just end there that’s was just the beginning,the beginning of Jesus ministry. Right after the Bible tell us that the spirit let Jesus into the wilderness. This is key being led by the spirit in everything that we do is a guarantee victory even if it don’t seem like it. Remember Peter when he ask to walk on water well he did but then he started to sink then he cried for Jesus’s help and they walk back together. This only happen to those who are led.
If you like read it you could find it on Mat 14:22-33
The Holy Spirit don’t only come for people in the ministry is for everyone.
He want to walk with you daily…
