Blessed are you, O LORD our God, Master of the Universe, who sanctified us through Jesus our Messiah, we give you thanks and praise for the fire of Your Holy Spirit that lives within us.
When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. And suddenly from heaven there came a sound like the rush of a violent wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting.Divided tongues, as of fire, appeared among them, and a tongue rested on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other languages, as the Spirit gave them ability.
“If you love me, you will keep my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, to be with you forever. This is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him.John 14:15-17
You know him, because he abides with you, and he will be in you.”
I was watching The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe and this song began to play. Perhaps, because of these past 10 days of praying and looking and listening for the Holy Spirit, these lyrics came to life … a picture of living life in the Holy Spirit. As those who believe in Jesus Christ, we are now the Temple of the the Holy Spirit. He lives within us! We have the deposit of heaven living within. “It cannot be anymore beautiful … I can’t take it in.”
He is come. The Holy Spirit is come!
May your day be filled to overflowing.
