The Holy Spirit is often the most misunderstood part of the trinity. People tend to think that the Holy Spirit is a ‘thing’ rather than a person. The Holy Spirit is the third part of the trinity with God the Father and God the Son.
Here is a beautiful quote by Frances J. Roberts about the Holy Spirit: “It is My Life I am giving you. It is not an emotion; it is not a virtue, though these may subsequently follow. It is Myself. Divine Grace, heavenly love, infinite mercy, fathomless peace – all these will spring forth unbeckoned and irrepressible out of the depths within you because My Spirit has taken residence there.”
Jesus told the disciples that His Spirit would come make His home with them. In other words, His Spirit would reside in them.
Jesus answered him, “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him.”
Look back at the quote by Frances J. Roberts. Could you use some divine grace in your life today or do you know someone who could use it? You have His Spirit dwelling with you to give you His grace and to help you show His grace to others.
Need to feel loved or know someone who does? Tap into the power of the Holy Spirit and show His love to a broken world.
We are all in need of mercy from time to time and are called to show mercy to those around us. On our own, we aren’t very good at being merciful because we are too judgmental. However, when we choose to submit to the Holy Spirit, we can be merciful rather than judgmental.
We can never have enough peace in our lives but have access to it all the time. We need to ask the Spirit to help us feel His peace and to empower us to be bring peace to those around us.
Take a minute today to thank the Lord for His presence that abides within you. Ask the Lord to show you how you can use His Spirit to minster to those around you today.
