SUGGESTED READING: ACTS 9:10-22
SCRIPTURE TEXT: “And Ananias went his way, and entered into the house; and putting his hands on him said, Brother Saul, the Lord, even Jesus, that appeared unto thee in the way as thou camest, hath sent me, thou mightest receive thy sight, and be filled with the Holy Ghost”
The Holy Spirit’s work of grace is not finished in one’s soul until that soul has had a personal Pentecost.
Have you had your Pentecost yet? Christ’s work is not done, as He came to do it, until you are filled by God’s Spirit. When a Christian is filled with the Spirit, the Spirit comes to dwell within, and the indwelling Holy Spirit will make him “incandescent” for the glory of God.
The gospel is not that God loves us with unmerited mercy and blots our sins. The miraculous work that Jesus Christ came to do is the making of saints stamped and sealed by Golgotha and Pentecost.
You cannot do God’s work unless the Holy Spirit infills you completely. Allow God to complete His work in you.
Prayer Thought: “Fill me, Spirit of God, with your powerful presence as I labor for You.” Amen.
