The Holy Spirit

I want to share some practical advice about the work of the Holy Spirit is doing today in our world and the Church with you.

1. The Holy Spirit's main task is to discourage everyone from engaging in sinful behavior. (John 16:7-15)

The Holy Spirit is here to call everyone away from their sinful behavior habits, and "all who are led by the Spirit are sons of God." (Romans 8:14 ESV)

The emphasis of sinful behavior is to think and act like the rest of the world exists for your benefit. I think two really good examples of this in America recently is how everyone begins talking about how Black Lives Matters or flying the LGBT flag when they could say American Lives Matter or flying an American flag.

The fact that gay nightclubs get shot up or that white cops feel threatened and shoot black citizens is an American tragedy, unless blacks and the LGBT's are somehow more American than everyone else outside of their demographic minority.

2. The Holy Spirit gives Christians a supernatural grace to help others find relief from their sinful habits.

This supernatural grace is more commonly known as spiritual gifts. These abilities I will not explain in detail here, except to say there is only one way we can learn to use them. We must discipline ourselves to love the way God loves: unconditionally.

God has put every spiritual gift mentioned in the Bible at the Church's disposal, but we must still be taught how to use them.

3. The Holy Spirit guides Christians to live under the supervision and guidance of ministers that Jesus Christ has personally chosen for His Church, from His Church.

Jesus Christ is a dictator, and anyone who disagrees or disapproves of how any dictator makes decisions is in a very dangerous place. Trust me, you do not want to go to that place.

So join a Church in your area.

Holy Spirit
