God's Will for You Today, Part Four Be In Tune With The Holy Spirit!

 

1Thesselonians 5: 19 - Do not put out the Spirit's fire;

We often lament our seeming inability to discern the will of God for our lives. We can find ourselves facing life changing decisions and seeking the will of God only to hear nothing. Too often, we have decided and then seek "confirmation" as opposed to seeking the will of God before making decisions. The bible is filled with direction on the will of God but nowhere does it seem clearer then in Paul's closing remarks to the Church at Thessalonica (1st Epistle). As the Apostle Paul is signing off his letter, he provides seven instructions which he refers to as, "God's will for you in Christ Jesus." Seven of course is God's number of perfection and each of these imperatives are given their own separate verse, even though they are contained within only two sentences. No matter what circumstance you may face in your life, you can match it up with these seven imperatives to discover the will of God for you in Christ Jesus!

Perhaps the most misunderstood of the trinity is the Holy Spirit. We speak about the indwelling of the Holy Spirit and baptism in the Holy Spirit but too often we fail to grasp the nature of the relationship we are meant to have with the Spirit. It is meant to be communal in nature.

 

Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; - 1Corinthians 6:19

 

We are no longer our own. We are now one with the Holy Spirit when we become born again. If our body is His temple, then it is clear that He lives in us. Paul understood this truth:

 

What you heard from me, keep as the pattern of sound teaching, with faith and love in Christ Jesus. Guard the good deposit that was entrusted to you--guard it with the help of the Holy Spirit who lives in us. 2Timothy 1: 13-14

 

What are some other names for the Holy Spirit? According to Jesus He is our Counselor, Comforter, and the Spirit of Truth:

 

But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. John 14:26
