The Activity of the Holy Spirit in the lives of Church Age believers, part 16.

To enable us to SEE who Jesus IS…
And then to embolden us to TESTIFY about who Jesus is.

So the Holy Spirit identifies Jesus to church age believers, and makes witnesses.

The Holy Spirit has one all-encompassing concern: He is focused with all His capacity upon the Lord Jesus, to make Him glorious, and that in church age believers.

We are being transformed into the image and likeness of Christ as we behold the glory of the Lord in the mirror of the word of God, 2CO 3:17-18.

The Spirit takes of Christ’s and discloses it to us.

In order for someone to worship God in spirit and truth, there must be the presence of the Holy Spirit, and the liberty to go beyond ritual and the letter to get at the truth, the ultimate meaning of things.

Where sin is, death is.

to rescue His children from SIN.

Now God wants to rescue us from sin in our every day lives.

God has gone to the lengths of PUTTING HIMSELF IN US to prevent us from drinking the poison.

If we are occupied with a new life, new fresh wells, rivers of living water, we won’t be much tempted any longer to go check out the poisonous wells we used to frequent.

What is the Holy Spirit’s work when it comes to sin in the life of the church age believer?

The whole purpose and goal behind that work is to GET RID OF IT.
To have it stop.
To free the child of God from sin.

The Holy Spirit wars against the flesh on the victorious ground of the death and resurrection and session of the Lord Jesus Christ, and His work is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ.

Our active concentration should not be on ourselves and our sin.
It should be on Christ and His accomplishments.

The whole purpose and goal behind that work is to GET RID OF IT.
To have it stop.
To free the child of God from sin.
