God said that we can only live by His life, by His power. Christians must be filled with the Holy Spirit. When we don't have the Holy Spirit dwelling in our lives, we dry up. We become empty. We die inside.
Where there is spiritual life there is need of spiritual strength, strength for all the actions of the spiritual life. It enables Christians to do their duty, and still hold fast to their integrity. The Spirit is the worker of spiritual life, and the earnest of eternal life. To discern by the light, whatever agrees with, or differs from his will. The Spirit is the staff of life. He is the Author of the soul's life
The Promise of the Holy Spirit
If earthly parents are willing to lay out the education of their children, to leave their estates, much more will our heavenly Father give the spirit to all those whom he has predestinated to his inheritance. It is in his promise and power to give it. It is a gift that God will give to you.
Ask For It
The gift of the Holy Ghost is a gift every Christian should be concerned with earnestly and constantly praying for. Ask Him to fill you up, completely, from head to toe, every day of your life. Watch and see how the Holy Spirit will transform your life, day by day, and lead you into all truth, as Jesus Christ promised. It will transform you and others around you!
I encourage you to stretch out your hands to the Holy Spirit and ask Jesus Christ to make you a channel of his love, grace and joy, to give hope, healing and comfort to the world. Pray for the progress of his good work in you, and that you are never deprived of his grace.
Ask him daily to refill you, refresh you, and re-empower you. Pray for the continuance of God's blessing, that he may abide with you forever, as long as you live.
