3 Things the Holy Spirit Does

Let’s take another look at the Holy Spirit today.  It’s so common to operate our every day with the Holy Spirit.  The believer who is aware of the Holy Spirit in everyday life is the believer who knows who He is in Christ Jesus. 

Jesus operated every day by the Holy Spirit.  

My pastor used to say, “Every morning you ought to wake up, put your hands on your belly and say ‘You’re welcome in your temple Holy Spirit’”.  

It certainly will put a stop to some of the habits we let hand in our flesh.  When we become aware that the Holy Spirit is right inside of us at all times, suddenly those TV shows we want to watch or activities we want to participate in become less than desirable. 

Cease, my son, to hear the instruction that causeth to err from the words of knowledge.

Proverbs 19:27 KJV

In other words, quit filling yourself with all the garbage and realize that what goes in must always come back out.  

Your spirit is a multiplier because it’s made in the image of God, and God is a God of multiplication. 

You give God a seed and He will return a harvest – always multiplied.

Maybe you give God your time and He will return it to you increased.

Give your life to God and He will multiply it and make you more than you ever thought possible. 

Operate your life not from your head but from your heart.  So that’s what we are talking about today.  

The Holy Spirit is your Guide

Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

John 16:13 KJV

This verse tells us a lot about who the Holy Spirit is and what He will do for you and I when we put a demand on Him. 

 #1 The Holy Spirit will guide you into ALL truth

The Bible is just another book to the unsaved person.  Someone who is not born again does not see the life inside the Bible.  It doesn’t mean there ISN’T life in the Bible it just means you don’t have access to it. 

(Think about a light bulb. Just because it’s off right now doesn’t mean there isn’t power. It just means you haven’t accessed it.)

The Holy Spirit is the way you access the power of the Word of God.  Without the Holy Spirit you are just reading words on a page, but you begin to understand the life that bubbles up inside of your heart when you operate with the Holy Spirit. 

#2 The Holy Spirit will not operate for Himself

The Holy Spirit isn’t interested in making His name known.  In fact, He will always point to Jesus.  Jesus is the one that is exalted.  Why you might ask?  Well simply because He was the one who became most humble.  

There is no one more humble than Jesus and therefore, there is no one more exalted than Jesus. 

#3 The Holy Spirit speaks the words of Jesus

This is what blows my mind.  Why would you NOT want Jesus to talk to you?  Well, when I ask a question like that, the answer is always Of course I want God to talk to me!! 

But the problem is that we are basically telling God that when we don’t want the Holy Spirit.  His goal isn’t to intrude or make you uncomfortable.  In fact, it’s the exact opposite.  

The Holy Spirit will always be a perfect gentleman.  That means you won’t ever see Him force you to do something you don’t want to do. 

That’s NOT all folks

There’s so much to discuss when it comes to the Holy Spirit.  Today we just looked at three really important things that the Holy Spirit does.  This is by no means the end of the discussion on who the Holy Spirit is and what He does.
