"And now I will send the Holy Spirit, just as my Father promised. But stay here in the city until the Holy Spirit comes and fills you with power from heaven."
Insight: Jesus did not die for our sins and reconcile us with God so that we would live our lives trying to become “good people.” While goodness is a fruit, or evidence of the Holy Spirit at work within us, Jesus went back to heaven and gave us the Holy Spirit to fill us with power. His desire for us is that we would live in the power that comes from him that enables us to experience grace, love and freedom from sin, and give that same power to others.
Prayer: Thank you God for the gift of the Holy Spirit in my life. Help me to be mindful of His leading, and learn to walk in the power and freedom that you intend for me.
