I am nearly done with Francis Chan’s Forgotten God, a book on the neglect of the Holy Spirit (I’ve enjoyed it in a ‘you have to go to the dentist for your health but it may hurt in the process’ kind of way).
The Holy Spirit indwells those who’ve believed and repented and confessed.
This is the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead. He is the Comforter and Helper who Jesus said is better to have present than Jesus himself. That’s insane.
So here’s my question to you…
Here it is…
Is your present life explainable apart from the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit?
I’ll ask it this way for clarification: Could you live the exact same life without the Holy Spirit?
How you answer that question should tell you a lot about your walk with Jesus.
