Gods Holy Spirit Came and I am Not the Same

“If you love me, show it by doing what I’ve told you. I will talk to the Father, and he’ll provide you another Friend so that you will always have someone with you. This Friend is the Spirit of Truth. The godless world can’t take him in because it doesn’t have eyes to see him, doesn’t know what to look for. But you know him already because he has been staying with you, and will even be in you! “I will not leave you orphaned.” John 14:15-18

Today at Narre Warren Baptist Church Pastor Peter Botross continued the series of the Holy Spirit and what it means to ‘Live ie the Spirit.’ for me it means

LISTENING TO GOD
John 14:15 “If you love me, show it by doing what I’ve told you.”

WAITING ON GOD
John 14:16 “I will talk to the Father, and he’ll provide you another Friend so that you will always have someone with you.”

FOCUSING ON GOD
John 14:17 This Friend is the Spirit of Truth. The godless world can’t take him in because it doesn’t have eyes to see him, doesn’t know what to look for. But you know him already because he has been staying with you, and will even be in you!

WALKING WITH GOD
Matthew 11:28 “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest.

Count yourselves blessed every time people put you down or throw you out or speak lies about you to discredit me. What it means is that the truth is too close for comfort and they are uncomfortable. Don’t worry about defending yourselves–what you’ll say or how you’ll say it. The right words will be there. The Holy Spirit will give you the right words when the time comes.

God’s kingdom isn’t a matter of what you put in your stomach, for goodness’ sake. It’s what God does with your life as he sets it right, puts it together, and completes it with joy. May the God of green hope fill you up with joy, fill you up with peace, so that your believing lives, filled with the life-giving energy of the Holy Spirit, will brim over with hope!

Matthew 5:11 ~ Luke 12:11-12 ~ Romans 14:17 ~ Romans 15:13
