"Wait And Pray", by Pastor Kevin Lynch

Your spiritual life is effecting your physical life. Things are either going well or not going so well. Some things may be going very badly for you.

There is a remedy.

First of all, you cannot live right without the fullness of the Holy Spirit in your life. He acts like the Superintendent of all that God has for you. He keeps things orderly and organized. He bestows your spiritual gifts. He nourishes the garden of your spiritual fruit. He counsels you, loves you, excites you, and touches your emotions with mercy and compassion. He even helps you to be happy and laugh more!

He has brought the shed Blood of Jesus Christ into your heart which cleanses you of sin.

He was the one who whispered into your ear the gentle conviction of your rebellious life against God.

No, you can't live right without Him. It's like only getting 2/3's of God!

You need Him and Jesus taught us how.

Acts 1:14 - "All of these with their minds in full agreement devoted themselves steadfastly to prayer, [waiting together]."

Jesus said "wait for the promise", and the disciples understood it correctly as to gather and pray for it until it happens.

Do you want Him?

We know Sunday is Pentecost but you don't have to wait until once a year to get it, but since there should be a time of preparing and prayer, and Sunday is still five days away, why not start now and expect Him to fulfill the Promise for you on that day?

Pray for the Baptism of the Holy Spirit to happen for you on Sunday. Walk into Church expecting it to happen for you.

I know at my church we will be dedicating that day to the Holy Spirit for Him to do His special work of purifying and empowering those who are seeking Him.

It is not the only day, but is as good a day as it gets for you to give yourself over totally and completely to God and allow Jesus to Baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with Fire!

In the meantime, I intend to be in prayer and union with Jesus over this and I am expecting a glorious day!

More tomorrow!

Keepin' it Real,

Pastor Kevin <><
