Christ’s presence was only felt by a few men during His time on earth. Christ now dwells in the hearts of all who have accepted Him as Savior through the Spirit. Paul wrote to the Corinthians, “Know ye thou not that ye have been made the temple of God and that the Spirit is dwelling in you?” (1 Corinthians 3:16).
Every believer is granted the Holy Spirit, not for a short time but forever. If He were to leave us, we’d be in serious trouble. Walter Knight recounts the story of a young boy who received Christ recently.
Jim asked, “Daddy, how do I believe in God when I haven’t seen Him?” His father, an electrician, replied, “I’ll show how.” Jim later went with his father to see the gyrators. “This is where we get the power to heat our stove and give us light. The father said that although we cannot see the power, it is there in the machine and the power lines. Jim said, “I believe that electricity is possible.”
His father said, “Of course, you believe in electricity,” but he didn’t only believe it. It is because he saw it. You can also believe in the Holy Spirit if you see His work in people’s lives.
He will give you the special power to serve Christ. He is there for you in times of temptation. He is here to give you the supernatural fruit of God, such as love, joy, peace, and long-suffering.
He will help you navigate the many difficult roads you’ll have to travel as a Christian.
