Where would we be without God’s Holy Spirit?
Answer – Dead actually. Not dead physically but dead spiritually. We would have no life with and in God. We would not be His child. We would not be destined for heaven.
Pentecost – the Holy Spirit was poured into all the believers 50 days after Jesus rose from the dead (Acts 2 ). This was the fulfilment of the promise God the Father and God the Son, Jesus made (John 14:16-17; 14:26 and 15:26). Romans 8:9 puts it very clearly ”If anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ he does not belong to Christ “
Here are a few of the many blessings that are ours through the Holy Spirit living in us. He is the seal and the guarantee that we belong to Jesus, as we read God’s Word He shows us more of Jesus to enrich our faith and our obedience when we labour in prayer He prays for us through our groans.
So we celebrate Pentecost and rejoice in the indescribable blessings we have through the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
