The Promises of Jesus
Luke 11: 13 If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him.
John 14:15-16 If you love me you will obey what I command. And I will ask the Father and he will give you another Counselor to be with you forever - the Spirit of Truth.
John The Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.
John When the Spirit of Truth comes, he will guide you into all truth.
John All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will take from what is mine and make it known to you.
John Receive the Holy Spirit.
Acts 1:4-5 Do not leave
, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you
have heard me speak about. John baptized with water, but in a few days you will
be baptized with the Holy Spirit. Jerusalem
Acts 1:8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you.
These verses about receiving the Holy Spirit are thrilling to all true believers. Are you inspired by them? These are the words of Jesus! Seek him and he will fill your heart with his joyful spirit.
John MacArthur’s Study Bible says that in these verses “Jesus promises believers five supernatural blessings that the world does not enjoy.
1. A supernatural Helper.
2. A supernatural life.
3. A supernatural union.
4. A supernatural teacher.
5. A supernatural peace
These supernatural promises are for those who love Jesus Christ, whose love is evidenced by obedience.”
Isn’t this amazing! When we accept Jesus as our Lord Savior, repent for our sins and submit our life to him, the Holy Spirit comes into our heart. To be aware of his presence we must seek him more and deepen our trust, obedience and devotion to Jesus Christ. These promises are real and true. Hallelujah!
I thank you for this biblical assurance that you live in the heart of each believer. I thank you for the awareness of your loving presence and for your kind guidance and comfort. We are growing in our faith and obedience. “Come Holy Spirit, kindle in us the power of your love.” Let your spirit in us bring glory to you. We love you with all our heart, soul, mind and strength, In Jesus name we pray.
If anyone reading this does not know Jesus – seek him and you, too will have supernatural help in every area.
