Pentecost Every Day

Pentecost Every Day

Lots of people wish it could be Christmas year round. How about Pentecost? Could we have Pentecost every day? Actually, yes. That’s called Christian living. For real. But when the Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor—Counselor, Strengthener, Standby) comes, whom I will send to you from the Father,that is the Spirit of Truth who comes from the Father, He will testify and bear witness about Me. But you will testify also and be My witnesses, because you have been with Me from the beginning. (John…

The Big Five of the Holy Spirit

The Big Five of the Holy Spirit

What’s the big deal of the Holy Spirit? Why do we need the Holy Ghost? Why should we be excited about the Spirit of God? I’ve collected here my big five reasons why the Holy Spirit is an essential part of spiritual life. 1) The Holy Spirit is a person. For real. The Holy Spirit is not just an abstract thought or impersonal wind. The Holy Spirit is a person who hears, speaks, feels and thinks. The Holy Spirit loves,…

The Holy Spirit – The Chief Energizer!

The Holy Spirit – The Chief Energizer!

What does make you tick? What is the driving force in your life? Who is the chief energizer of your activity? It does matter what we choose and how we live our lives. Like A.W. Tozer has said “No matter what a man does, no matter how successful he seems to be in any field, if the Holy Spirit is not the chief energizer of his activity, it will all fall apart when he dies.” Life is short and without…

God Is Thrice Holy

God Is Thrice Holy

The LORD is righteous in all his ways, and holy in all his works. (Psalm 145:17,KJV) God is holy. What does it mean? Holy in Hebrew, qadosh, literally means “to be set apart”. So God is something else! God is distinct from anything and everything. God is totally different from us. God is holy! “I don’t think the way you think. The way you work isn’t the way I work.” God’s Decree. “For as the sky soars high above earth,…

Turn on The Holy Spirit GPS!

Turn on The Holy Spirit GPS!

Way too often we struggle alone. Way too often we forget to turn on the Holy Spirit GPS. God gave us the gift of the Holy Spirit and we are meant to abide in him and him abide in us. It doesn’t happen if we forget its existence. It doesn’t happen if we forget to turn it on.  But you, dear friends, carefully build yourselves up in this most holy faith by praying in the Holy Spirit, staying right at…

Through prayer we can approach God and state our willingness to be changed, to become holy like the Father God. But we have also been given another…

Put Your Faith in Practice!

Put Your Faith in Practice!

“Remove Christ from the Scriptures and there is nothing left”, states Martin Luther. That is so true. Without Christ there would not be a way back to God. Without Christ there would not be life and more life to come. Without Christ we would be lost. That’s why I agree wholeheartedly with Paul writing:  For my part, I am going to boast about nothing but the Cross of our Master, Jesus Christ. Because of that Cross, I have been crucified…

Crossing Back to Life

Are you discouraged? Burdened? Homesick? Burned-out? Cross back into Life! God is waiting for you to cross back home to him. Crab your Bible because “the Holy Scriptures are our letters from home” like Augustine put it. The Bible will be your map back to Life. “The remedy for discouragement is the Word of God.

People of the Presence of the Holy Spirit

People of the Presence of the Holy Spirit

Today my favorite quote is this one by William Blake: “I myself do nothing. The Holy Spirit accomplishes all through me.” That’s what being a Christian means. It’s not about me or my (in)abilities. People of the presence of the Holy Spirit do not need to be afraid of anything. People of the presence of the Holy Spirit does not need to bow to devil’s temptations or believe devil’s accusations of inadequacies or any other lies he wants us to…

Me – A Temple of The Holy Spirit?

Me – A Temple of The Holy Spirit?

Do you have some difficult faith topics that you push away from your mind as much as you can? I bet you do. I think we all do. One of my challenging faith concepts has long time been ‘our bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit’. Not because I would not agree with the statement. But because it is humbling to think that my body is a temple of the Holy Spirit. THE HOLY SPIRIT!!! Or didn’t you realize that your body is a…
