Once when he was eating with them, he commanded them, “Do not leave Jerusalem until the Father sends you the gift he promised, as I told you before. John baptized with water, but in just a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.” Act 1:4-5. The apostles had spent 3 years with Jesus, and had the knowledge to go out and share the good news but Jesus said to them “wait”, wait until you receive the Holy Spirit. Jesus didn’t want the apostles to work from their own ability, but from His strength and wisdom. When we depend on the Holy Spirit, He will guide us, strengthen us and give us what to say or do in the right moment. When we surrender ourselves to the leading of the Holy Spirit, we will do things His way and not our way. Praise God today for His Holy Spirit, God in us and God with us, who will guide us and strengthen us as we surrender ourselves fully to Him each day.
