January 7, 2022 – Relying on the Holy Spirit
Sermon: 2271 – The Principles of Power
Pray Over This
“And being assembled together with them, He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, ‘which,’ He said, ‘you have heard from Me; for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.’”
Jesus told the disciples to tarry until they were endued with power from on high. But we don’t need to tarry. The Holy Spirit has already come. We don’t need to say, “Oh God, send Your Spirit.” He’s sent His Spirit. That would be like praying, “Oh God, send Jesus to die on the cross.” No, He has died on the cross. Calvary’s an accomplished fact. Pentecost is an accomplished fact. What we need now to do is to receive the promise.
If you are a Christian, if you are truly saved, you’ve already received that promise. You may say, “Well I don’t feel it.” I want to tell you something. You can be a part of a denomination and be lost. You can attend worship services and be lost. But you cannot be a Christian and not have the Holy Spirit in you. That’s what makes you a Christian. If you repented of your sins, you have already received the Holy Spirit of God.
Take time today to pray frequently, asking the Holy Spirit to guide you in routine decisions; seek to honor and serve Him in all you do.
