Faith In Action ‘Going Deeper’

easter02

There is no room for boasting as a Christian about our own achievements, because as a Christian we can do nothing without Him. John 15 verse 5;

“i am the vine; you are the branches. The one who remains in me and I in him produces much fruit, because you can do nothing without Me”.

Neither is there room for boasting that God is our exclusive possession as though we were somehow superior to others who are not trusting in Him. Romans 2 verse 17} Rather, the only boasting that is ok is, in what God has done in us through Christ Jesus’s death and resurrection.

Going deeper in faith, we realize The Holy Spirit is not necessarily there to sort out our problem  The Holy Spirit is more interested in our Holiness than our health or our happiness. Leviticus 11 verse 44

“For I am The Lord your God, so you must consecrate yourselves and be Holy because I am Holy”.

That is why He is called the Holy Spirit and not Healthy Spirit or Happy Spirit. It is true that the Holy Spirit brings freedom. power. intimacy expectancy and humility, but He does so in the context of suffering. {Romans 8 verse 27 to 23}

As we move deeper and deeper into the Holy Spirit. we are reminded that He is at work, not necessarily to remove us from the struggles and sufferings, but to Empower us in the midst of it all.

There can be times when our experiences have not measured up to our expectations, but we can remain satisfied and content in God, rather than looking other things in a desire to improve our circumstances.

Not just in going deeper in the Holy Spirit. but just in having the Holy Spirit in our lives, we should truly understand, that The holy Spirit brings us peace in whatever the circumstance. Going deeper in our faith and knowledge, allows the Holy Spirit to help us more and more to become more like Our Lord, Our Redeemer and Our Friend.

God Bless.
