THE GIFT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
Repent and be baptised in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. Acts 2:38
Robert Murray McCheyne was a Scottish preacher who received the git of the Holy Spirit. He desired to see revival in Scotland. God gave him the desires of his heart. He was in Palestine, on a mission of inquiry, when the revival broke out in Dundee, Scotland. Robert McCheyne died very young, at the age of twenty-nine, but he will be remembered for a long time still. Robert considered himself an adoring spectator, God was in control of his actions. He was merely an instrument of God.
That’s precisely what I want to do today. I want to be an adoring spectator. I want to stand back and watch what the Spirit is doing through God’s children. Just as I am looking at the windmill on my farm turned by a gust of wind, I want to watch what the Holy Spirit does in God’s world. It is awesome. We cannot even comprehend the things that God has got prepared for those who love Him. You received the gift of the Holy Spirit when you repented and became a child of God. Ask His Spirit today and every day to work through you so that you can be a channel of God’s love, mercy and grace to others. You will be an adoring and amazed spectator.
Dear Lord, fill me today with the power, the dynamite, of Your Holy Spirit. Holy Spirit, I welcome You in my life. Inspire me to serve Jesus Christ with all my heart. Amen
