THE HOLY SPIRIT MAKES THE DIFFERENCE;
“And the Spirit of the LORD will come upon thee, and thou shalt prophesy with them, and shalt be turned into another man”(1 Samuel 10:6).
The importance of the Holy Spirit’s ministry in the Church can never be overemphasized. He is the boss in the Church today! We talk about Jesus and the Father but the Holy Spirit is the one that’s with us here (John 16:17). He reveals the Father and Jesus to us. You can’t understand the Father or Jesus except through the Holy Spirit. No wonder the Lord Jesus Christ commanded His disciples to remain in Jerusalem until they were endued with the power of the Spirit (Acts 1:4). They needed the power of the Holy Ghost to be effective witnesses of the gospel of Christ.
In the Old Testament, when the Holy Spirit came on the prophets of old, He made the difference in their lives and ministry. Also, the apostles of the Lord were transformed the instant the Holy Ghost came on them. “Saul, the son of Kish was transformed and turned into another man when the Holy Spirit came on him” (1 Samuel 10:11). Likewise, the apostle Peter, who in timidity and fear, denied the Master before a young girl became so bold after he had been endued with the power of the Spirit. When the opportunity came to testify about Christ, he boldly declared to the leaders and elders of the Jews that the name of Jesus is the only name whereby we must be saved (Acts 4:12). By the power of the Spirit, Peter preached and won three thousand souls to Christ at once (Acts 2:41). The Holy Spirit made the difference in his life!
This same Holy Spirit is all you need for a successful and fruitful journey in your walk with God and through life! He’ll make the difference in your life if you’ll learn to recognize Him and walk with Him! He’ll take you all the way, and become to you what you need Him to be!
