Verse of the Day

Galatians 5: 16

So I say, let the Holy Spirit guide your lives. Then you won’t be doing what your sinful nature craves.

Galatians 5: 16

Live by the Spirit

When Jesus ascended into heaven, He knew that His followers would continue to need His help and guidance when walking through life. So He left behind His Holy Spirit for man. The Holy Spirit is part of the trinity: God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit. They are three in one, meaning that they all exist together, but also have separate identities. The job of the Holy Spirit is to guide the believer in the right path. When you have a decision to make, if you make a decision that goes against the will of God, you will feel a conviction from the Holy Spirit. If you pray and ask, the Spirit will help lead you toward the will of God. That is just one of His jobs. Another job of the Holy Spirit is to be an advocate on your behalf. He is always praying and interceding for you before the throne of God. This is why you, a sinful being, can still remain in the presence of a Holy God.

So let Him guide you in the way you should go so you won’t be allowing your sinful nature to take control. He will be in control when you let Him. Isn’t it amazing to think that the Holy Spirit is constantly pleading with God on your behalf! That shows us how much God loves us and how much He wants us to be with Him.

A Prayer to Remember

Dear Lord,
You are so good to me. Your Holy Spirit knows what I need and when I need it. Thank you for sending Him to me so that I might be in your presence and live with you. Amen
