For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. I Corinthians 2:11 NKJV
This verse is very profound. It leaves in the mind of those who have common sense, no room for doubt or confusion.
Who know us better than our own spirit? Only God, but no one else. So surely you can understand now why anyone who is born of God continue to feel sadden when a person is in a church for many years or claiming to believe in God, yet they have never received the Holy Spirit.
Without the Holy Spirit, you can read the entire bible, experience miracles, improve in your character and even be used by God to save others, but, you’ll never know who God is personally.
Now imagine how frustrating this is for God Himself.
He sent our Lord Jesus, His Son, to die for us so that the Holy Spirit could be given to all those who believe in Him, as a GIFT, as our INHERITANCE. A gift that we are automatically entitled to the moment we accept Him as our Lord & Saviour.
Yet, so many neglect or reject it, consciously & unconsciously. And the consequence? People who are in church for most of their lives or claim to believe in the God of the bible, but don’t even know, PERSONALLY , the One they claim to be their Father, Lord & Saviour.
Do Not Accept This To Be Your Case.
The Holy Spirit inside of me is telling you, demanding from you, that you use your focus, time and strength to take possession of YOUR GIFT, YOUR INHERITANCE, the Holy Spirit.
