SELAH Daily Devotions!
“But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth” (Acts 1:8)
Who is the most important person in the earth today? WOW! Talk about a brow-raising provocative attention getting disruption! I suppose the more intellectual individual would promptly interject, “That depends! It’s all relative to one’s personal proclivity and objectivity! ”
An avid sports enthusiast may call out his favorite team’s star performer, based on his/her stats. While the more musically inclined person, might consider that artistic-talented-top-of-the –chart entertainer. Yet again, to that bright-eyed-looking-just-like-your-Daddy 7-yr. old son could profoundly-energetically proclaim his-giant-of-a-man progenitor
However, as a Bible-Living-Trusting-Believer I entreat you to consider The Triune God, in the Person of Holy Spirit, the MVP in the earth heads down and hands up! Now ask me why? Because, Jesus said so!
“I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also. At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.” (John 14:18-20) Didjaheardat?
Jesus completely fulfilled The Father’s Redemptive Plan, by the shedding of His Atoning Blood restoring the relationship so abruptly breached by Adam’s disobedience (Ref. Hebrews 9:22) opening up the way for anyone who will accept His Saving Grace to live eternally in Heaven! However, it was the Fulfillment of The Promise, on The Day of Pentecost, when Holy Spirit showed up in the Upper-Room, filling all 120 waiting souls (with the evidence of speaking in unknown tongues) that subsequently empowers us to live triumphantly overcoming in this present world!
“And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.” (Acts 2:1-4)
So what’s so controversial? How can we live ‘HOLY’ without the Indwelling Power of Holy Spirit? How can we walk in The Spirit, be lead by The Spirit, be effective witnesses to a lost death reigning world without the Life-Giving Light illuminating through these vessels of clay? (Ref. 7:18)
“He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost.” (Acts 19:2)
STILL CONTROVERSIAL, HUH? WELL? REALLY? #itzrelative
