THE HOLY SPIRIT DWELLS IN YOU!
The Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you (John 14:17).
The Holy Spirit who is the great Comforter and Teacher dwells in you in life. The Holy Spirit is also referred to as our great Helper in time of need in life. There is no one that can succeed in life without the Holy Spirit. The Bible tells us in the opening text that the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that the Holy Spirit which is God’s Spirit dwells in him richly in life. The Holy Spirit is indeed the Spirit that teaches him the truth of God’s Word in life forever.
The Holy Spirit is the one that made the ministry of Jesus Christ very successful in life. If not for the Holy Spirit, Jesus Christ would not have been able to succeed in life and ministry. That is why the Bible tells us in Romans 8:11, “But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.” Therefore, it is the Holy Spirit of God that quickens our mortal bodies for victorious Christian living in life. Hence, a Christian devoid of the Holy Spirit is of course dead and powerless in life forever.
The Holy Spirit that dwells in you authenticates your genuineness in Christ Jesus. You can never live a life of Christianity without the Holy Spirit. That is the reason why the Bible says in Romans 8:9, “But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His.” In fact, the Holy Spirit in you is a mark of God’s identity upon your life in Christ Jesus. Also, it is indeed the Holy Spirit that seals up a Christian’s life and puts upon his body the marks of Jesus Christ (Galatians 6:17). The Holy Spirit is the full guarantee of God’s salvation in a Christian’s life forever.
Daily Tip: Every Christian needs the Holy Spirit of God to succeed in life and ministry forever. Shalom!
