Today we end our Pentecost Countdown with Day 1 – Pentecost
John 14:26 “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.”
The Holy Spirit is ready to be part of your life. Maybe he is just out of reach or for some he is just not in sync with your life. I am sure that most have other relationships in your lives. How do you keep that relationship fresh? Usually you visit, hang out, have coffee, talk on the phone. It is really no different than you should be with the Holy Spirit. If you want to know Him, spend some time with Him.
This journey can sometimes be a challenging one if you are not sure where to start. Once you have some knowledge about how the Holy Spirit works, you should start to feel more comfortable turning over decisions to Him and consult with Him on directions in your life. Pentecost is observed as the Apostles receiving the Holy Spirit. The amazing part is that this event happens every day to believers all over the world and is celebrated on earth and in Heaven.
The first step to Pentecost is belief. Second step is a simple conversation with Jesus to ask for forgiveness of your sins. After the second step, you will receive the Holy Spirit. From there, you begin your relationship with God the Father, the saving grace of the Son, and the ever-present Holy Spirit that is with you always. From there, you begin your discipleship. A disciple is a student. Start with the life of Jesus in the first four books of the New Testament. From there, head to Acts to see how the Apostles started and grew the first Churches throughout the known world.
Ask the Holy Spirit to speak to you today. Then, begin to do this every day and you will begin to unlock a deeper understanding of His role in your life. The journey has just begun.
