THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE HOLY GHOST

KEY SCRIPTURE :2 Corinth 13:14 KJV ” The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all”. Amen.

THIS verse reveals the trinity at work. The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit are one but three distinct persons with specific roles in the life of the Christian.  When the Lord   was with the disciples, He said that, it was expedient or profitable that He left the earth to the Father (John 16:7). This meant His physical presence was good, yet he was very much limited. His departure will allow the Holy Spirit or the comforter to come. The word comforter means one who is called to help or to accompany. In simple terms, the*i *Holy Spirit is Jesus Christ unlimited.

Since he has come to stand by us to help us continue with the work Jesus started, we must cooperate with Him. The word is fellowship. This involves communion, partnership or participate with   Him. Our Lord Jesus had a very wonderful fellowship with the Holy Spirit. He helps us to pray. Prayer is not only a means of getting things from God, but a means of participating with the Spirit. Prayer raises your spiritual antenna to hear from God. Constant prayer builds in the Christian a sense of spirituality and an awareness of the presence of God because it is the Spirit doing the prayer. To fellowship with the Spirit also involves asking the Holy Spirit for His counsel, on every issue in life. If you are searching for a missing thing, ask Him to show you where or how to locate it. He has helped me out on countless occasions.

ANOTHER aspect of fellowshipping with the Spirit, is to read and study the Holy scriptures by asking for His assistance (Psalms 119:18). Meditating on the scriptures gives Him the opportunity to expound on the word of God to you. If you do not understand any verse ask him to help you. His answers would come to you as thoughts in your mind. Live with the awareness that He is always present to help you out You would get to know insight about things that natural knowledge can’t make available to you.

CONFESSION

I have the Holy Spirit in my heart. He is my ever present help in all situations. He helps me in small and big issues of life. I am never in want of solutions to challenges. Thank you, Holy Spirit.
