is Jesus Christ.
It is through Him that we have access to the Father. It is through Him that we are able to pray and communicate with God. He tore that veil. It is through Jesus Christ that we can be saved. He alone, saves. His finished work on the cross defeated death, Hell, and the grave. Christ provides us gentiles with God’s protection, provision and promises.
Jesus Christ is the greatest gift we could ever receive. Through the gift of Jesus Christ, we have access to another important and great gift…
The Holy Spirit.
God’s Holy Spirit cannot be overlooked. His Spirit is our Comforter and as Jesus Christ left the Earth, the Holy Spirit was sent to be our Comforter until He returns.
This gifting is not some ghost hiding in a barn that only appears at night. This gifting isn’t some spirit that roams to scare and frighten, absolutely not! Some call Him the Holy Ghost , others the Holy Spirit. This does not change His function. He is our gift!
When He is eliminated from the conversation about God the Father and Jesus Christ, our Lord, we fail to grasp the significance of the gift left for us. The Holy Spirit is an active and vital part of the Trinity. He is deposited when we receive salvation and He is indeed a gift. Those who come to Christ need to know the beauty and the overwhelming nature of the Holy Spirit.
He convicts to produce change. He comforts because He knows that we will suffer for our faith. He communicates the heart of God. He brings forth good fruit within us. He changes our hearts from stone. He prepares us for the return of Christ. He transforms our mind. He makes us new. He know the mind of our Father.
He is our gift. He is our promise. There are some denominations who baptize with water, others who don’t. But we, who follow Christ, are ALL baptized with the Holy Spirit once we receive and accept Christ.
And this promise, this gifting is not just for us:
“For the promise is for you and for your children and for all who are far off, everyone whom the Lord our God calls to himself.” Acts 2:39
Embrace the promise, accept the gift.
Peace and Blessings
