Acts 1:8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the farthest parts of the earth.”

After Jesus died on the cross, rose from death and ascended to the Father in Heaven God sent His Holy Spirit to walk this earth in and through the believers in Jesus, His Son, His Word. We receive the Holy Spirit in us the moment we invite Jesus into our hearts and minds as our Lord and Savior. It is the Holy Spirit Who gives us the power to walk as Jesus did-in full and continuous fellowship and obedience to God the Father. Our question is do we really want to walk that way? We are so intent on our own comfort and desires that we tend to choose not to hear and obey the gentle nudging of the Holy Spirit within us. How did Jesus do it? He spent hours drawing apart from others to talk things over with the Father. How much time do we spend in conversation with the Father? We are good at telling Him what we want but how about listening to what He wants? We have one mouth and 2 ears. Let us talk half as much as we listen to our God.
