THE HELPER

“He will bring glory to me by taking
from what is mine and making it known to you.
John16:14

It has been amazing to me to watch the changing seasons in the body of Christ. As a young Christian, it seems everyone was interested in the Baptism in the Holy Spirit with a strong emphasis on the heavenly language. That was followed by a season with a strong emphasis on the Word. We were confessing the Word, praying the Word, as well as preaching the Word. After that, there was another season marked by revival and the manifest presence of The Lord. It seems like today we are in a very different season. Ministers and Christians seem to be more about style than substance. The emphasis is characterized by cultural relevance; it is more about coolness than anything else. Regardless of how the trends may change, we stay in need of the Holy Spirit. He brings us into the reality of God; He makes it real. here is how A. B. Simpson described our need for the Holy Spirit.

“When Jesus Christ spoke to His disciples for the last time, He promised to send the Holy Spirit to comfort them. Even though Jesus’ physical body would not be with them anymore, they would constantly be aware of His presence within them. The Holy Spirit would reveal the exalted Christ. This truth is often misunderstood. We need the assistance of the Holy Spirit who alone can fill our hearts with love and teach us to love. Through the Holy Spirit we may experience the presence and love of Jesus Christ throughout the day. For this, however, He must possess us entirely. He claims our whole heart and life. He gives us inner strength to enable us to have fellowship with God, obey His commands, and remain in His love. Once we fully understand this truth, we will realize how dependent we are on the Holy Spirit and will pray to the Father to send Him with power into our lives. The Spirit will teach us to love the Word, to meditate on it, and to keep it. He will reveal the love of Christ to us so that we can love Him with pure hearts in the midst of a busy life, with all its distractions.”

Regardless of what the culture of the world says, we desperately need the Holy Spirit”s activity in our lives every day. As you start your daily activities, stop for a moment. Wait in the presence of The Lord. You may be surprised at how easily and quickly He will respond.

  1. Coolness is a word that ideally only outsiders can relate to, that is people who will not allow themselves the opportunity to be in, or around the anointed presence of the only one true God. One would think, if after a person had knocked on God’s door and experienced their first taste of what God has made available to those that love Him, they would as fast as they were able, exchange all that was their life for a new life as The King’s Kid. In my observations the wisest Kid’s will allow God to use them in what use to seem totally uncool.
