DAY 25 SATURDAY: JANUARY 2020

YOU NEED TO COOPERATE WITH HOLY SPIRIT!

And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever (John 14:16).

The Holy Spirit is not just a Helper, but He is also the Comforter, Teacher, Counselor and Guidance of our souls. Any Christian who wants his ministry to be successful needs to cooperate with Him. We were told clearly in the Scriptures that without Him, we can do nothing. The Bible says in the opening text that I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that he needs to always cooperate with the Holy Spirit in life forever.

One of the major reasons why we need to cooperate with the Holy Spirit is that He teaches us the truth of God’s Word. Without the Holy Spirit, you can never know and understand the truth about God no matter your intellects in life. That is why the Bible says in John 16:13, “However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.” Therefore, it is the Holy Spirit that actually guides the Christian into all truth and enables him to stand firm in life forever. 

Every Christian needs to cooperate with the Holy Spirit in order to succeed in the ministry. There is absolutely no one that can do the work of the ministry by the flesh except by the Holy Spirit. That is the reason why the Bible says in Zechariah 4:6, “So he answered and said to me: ‘This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the Lord of hosts.” In fact, a Christian that is devoid of God’s Spirit is indeed powerless, null and void in all ramifications of life. The works of the ministry needs fully man’s cooperation with the Holy Spirit for greater exploits in life and ministry forever.

Daily Tip: Without the Holy Spirit, a Christian can do nothing; therefore, he needs to cooperate with Him in order to succeed in life and ministry forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you (John 14:26).
