The Holy Spirit is Your Helper, Comforter, Advocate, Guide and Best Friend
The most essential thing you need after you are born again is the baptism in the Holy Spirit. You may or may not be familiar with the Holy Spirit, despite the fact you may have been raised in a church. This was the case with me. In fact, I rarely even heard anything on the subject of being born again.
I became saved in a denominational church. We went through the normal religious routines on Sunday morning. Maybe you know what I’m talking about. I remember the service orders well: three hymns and a prayer followed by a silent moment of meditation. We always quoted The Lord’s Prayer and then the pastor had a quick sermon and a benediction. It was all laid out the same way every service. I’m not saying order is a bad thing, but I never saw much happening spiritually in that congregation. I never saw the reality of the gospel in people’s lives changing or sicknesses being healed. There was no demonstration of the Kingdom of God.
I started wondering if this was it and kept asking God to show me if this was it. The Lord answered me by taking me back to the book of Acts constantly. I became so hungry for more of God that a Pastor friend of mine prayed for me to receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and I started praying in tongues. In a non denominational service one morning in May 2008, the Holy Spirit came upon me in such power that I fell off my chair. The Baptism of the Holy Spirit is essential in every believer's life.
If you would like to receive this gift of the power of God, just ask. It says in Acts 13:52, “And the disciples were filled with joy and with the Holy Spirit.” Also, it says in Acts 1:8, “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria and to the ends of the earth.” You can do what Jesus did with the power of God in your life. Just ask the Holy Spirit to come and fill your life. Put on some worship music and just begin to thank Him for it. Speak what comes out of your spirit. Once you taste the raw power of God, you will never want to go back. Listen for the voice of the Holy Spirit to give you direction as you live this life. No longer do you have to rely on your own wisdom and power. Meet your best friend, the Holy Spirit, today!
