"God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” John 4:24 (NKJV)
Jesus revealed this blessed revelation to the Samaritan woman and thus also to us.
The worship which is true and acceptable to God is the one in Spirit and in truth, all other forms are void and unacceptable.
God wants all of us to be filled with the Holy Spirit and thus the infilling of the Holy Spirit is a must in every one's life.
Before our blessed Lord went to heaven, He promised a blessed Comforter, a Helper in the form of the Holy Spirit Who helps us to accomplish the task of the Lord in perfection, and without the Holy Spirit, we cannot do anything to please God.
Paul mentions this wonderfully when he explains the difference between our walk in the flesh and the Spirit.
"that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit." Romans 8:4 (NKJV)
God has great expectations from us and also we need to go to the goal set for us through the righteous requirement of the law and we can only accomplish this when we walk according to the Holy Spirit, under the perfect guidance and councel of the Holy Spirit.
How do we get this blessed Comforter? How do we get the infilling of the Holy Spirit in our life?
"If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!” Luke 11:13 (NKJV)
As simple as earthly parents are willing to give good gifts to their children, so is the Lord ready and willing to bless them with the Holy Spirit who earnestly seek and ask for it in prayer.
& what would this Holy Spirit do in our life?
"But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”" Acts 1:8 (NKJV)
Yes!!! We shall receive power and shall be the witnesses of our God, which means our life will be filled with God's power and our life will be pleasing to God and a source of encouragement to others.
Are you filled with the Holy Spirit? If not then you are powerless, you walk is not pleasing to the Lord.
God has given us His blessed Comforter and we need to have Him in our life.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
