Receive The Holy Spirit
Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?' So they said to him, 'We have not so much as heard whether there is a Holy Spirit.' Acts 19:2
Read Acts Chapter 19:1-20
It is possible to believe in God and not have the gift of the Holy Spirit. As we learned in the previous chapter, even Apollos had not yet learned of the Holy Spirit. They had only heard of the baptism of John and their need to repent. It is not enough to just repent; we need power to live a victorious Christian life. This power comes from the gift of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit not only unites the body of Christ, but He is a helper and a teacher of truth. But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things. (John 14:26a) Are you lacking power in your life? Do you need help? Do you need comfort? Receive the Holy Spirit, embrace Him, and He will come alongside you and empower you in the way that only He can. The Holy Spirit is the heart of God. Who wouldn't want to have all that He offers?

Prayer: Father, how we praise You for the power that comes from Your Spirit.
