Sunbeams Through My Window: Part 8
-Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow
Jesus knew how much we needed Him. It was for this reason that He promised and sent the Holy Spirit. He sent the Holy Spirit to be in us (John 14:17), and also to come upon us with power (Acts 1:8). The Holy Spirit was sent to do in us everything that Jesus came to do for us.
When Jesus sent the Holy Spirit, He sent someone who is exactly like Him in nature and character. The Holy Spirit didn’t come just to influence us, but to change us, transform us, fill us, and empower us. He came so that we could live in Him, walk in Him and be led by Him every day (Galatians 5).
When it comes to living the Christian life we are not sufficient, but the Holy Spirit, whom Jesus has sent, is all-sufficient.
...be filled with the Spirit (Ephesians 5:18b NKJV).
