Today, 08/27/2012, we celebrate the feast of Pentecost, when the Holy Spirit descended on the hearts and souls of Jesus' disciples and renewed their hearts and minds. Please read Acts chapter 2 for the incredible account of transformation by the power of the Holy Spirit.
We must remember that as Christians, the Holy Spirit dwells within us. I like to consider the indwelling Spirit as the engine in a very powerful car. We have the Spirit of God living in us, just as the vehicle has the engine idling in it. Our prayers, obedience to the Lord, and Love for God our Father and one another provides the fuel by which the Holy Spirit can and will give us more power than the horsepower of all the muscle cars in the world.
If we keep the car (our spiritual life) covered up in the garage, the Holy Spirit still dwells within us, but we are not giving God the Holy Spirit the opportunity to transform our world
and those of whom we touch.
May we be instruments of the Holy Spirit today and always.
