The Same Spirit

John 14:16-17. ” And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you.”

Acts 2:33. “Being therefore exalted at the right hand of God, and having received from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, he has poured out this that you yourselves are seeing and hearing.”

Jesus said after He returns to the Father He would send the same Holy Spirit Who dwells in Him to come into and dwell in His followers. Think about it. The same Spirit that filled and worked through Jesus is in us. This means, when we learn to fully appropriate this Spirit we can truly live and work as Jesus did on this earth. Our problem is we allow temptations to infiltrate and block the flow of this Holy Spirit instead of keeping our eyes on Jesus and our minds full of His words as recorded in the Holy Bible. I was taught as a child that anything worth doing takes effort, discipline and time. Our question is are we keeping temptation at bay and spending the effort, discipline and time and keeping our eyes on Jesus and our minds full of His words as recorded in the Holy Bible?
