7 Reasons Why You Need The Holy Spirit

Posted by Efoghor Joseph Ezie on 6/25/2010 04:48:00 PM

The Holy Spirit is the single most important source of help that every child of God needs in order to lead a good Christian life. Without him in our lives, we can never live lives that would satisfactorily please God. Every believer must therefore seek to have him in their lives.

When the Holy Spirit dwells in our lives, there are several things he would help us to do as Christians.

1.He makes us holy: We are told that we must be holy if we are to be relevant in God’s kingdom. We can only get the power to live holy lives through the Holy Spirit. Every believer should therefore submit to him and ask him to make them holy. (Rom.15:16; Thess.2:13; 1st Pet.1:15-16)

2.He links us to God: It is the Holy Spirit that establishes the link between us and God; because it is impossible for us to see God with our canal eyes. Every believer should seek his help, so as to be able to enjoy a better relationship with God. (John 15:26)

3.He gives us new life: We cannot see God with our sin-infested, corrupt, old bodies. When we are born again, the Holy Spirit renews us and gives us the spirit that is acceptable unto God (John 3:5-6; Titus 3:5)
4.He reveals God secrets: There are things God has kept away from the canal man; which would only be revealed to those who have his spirit. When the Holy Spirit dwells in you, he reveals those special secrets to you. (1Cor.14:16-18)

5.He brings us into fellowship: He brings us into fellowship with himself and with God. There are lots of benefits we derive from enjoying a fellowship with him. He shows us things to come; he reveals the truth about Jesus Christ and helps us to live a good Christian life. (2Cor.13:14; Phili.2:1)

6.He will raise us from the dead: The hope of any Christian is that he should be raised from the dead, into the kingdom prepared by Christ; where he would live for eternity. This hope could only be realized by the power of the Holy Spirit. You are sure of your resurrection on the last day, if you have him in your life (Rom.8:11)

7.He gives us talents: All the talents we need to succeed in our Christian lives, and to earn a living, come from him. He gives to us as he wishes. (Ex.31:2-3)

You need to surrender to Jesus Christ as your lord and personal saviour, and then you can ask him to fill you with the promised Holy Spirit. If you want to give your life to him, you may say this simple prayer: Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. I accept you as my lord and saviour, because I know you died to set me free from sin and death. Fill me with the power of the Holy Spirit, that I might be able to live a successful Christian life. Thank you for granting my request. Amen.
