The Role of The Holy Spirit in Your Life – He Unifies You with Christ & His Church…

SCRIPTURES:​ 1 Corinthians 12:12-13 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. 13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit. (​See also Ephesians 4:1-6​)​. Also note that just before His arrest, Jesus prayed that His followers would be united as one. (See John 17:11 & 17:21-23)

THOUGHT: Western thought and behavior is dominated by individualism and the drive for unique, personal self-expression. However, deep inside of you is the God-imparted desire to be a part of something and especially Someone Greater than yourself – that is your Creator, God Himself. When you accept Jesus Christ as Savior, it is Holy Spirit who unites you with all others, whether past, present or future, who have made or will make that same choice. Isolation and separation from the body of believers is the work of Satan. God’s Holy Spirit joins you in unity with God as a redeemed child, and plants you with a local body of believers for fellowship, accountability and spiritual safety. When you surrender to the order of Holy Spirit in the unity of the body of Christ it brings you Love, Joy, Peace and so much more. (See also Galatians 5:22-23

PRAYER: Heavenly Father, Thank You for bringing to my attention the importance You have deemed for me to be in unity with You, Your Spirit and my fellow believers. I will remain where You plant me. I will not to resist the accountability required in standing shoulder to shoulder, looking eye to eye with my fellow brothers and sisters. I will not resist the bonding that develops as I grow in the Spirit, in Faith, in Fellowship and in Relationship with my brothers and sisters. Thank you for making Love, Joy and Peace possible in my life, in the unity of Your Spirit. In Jesus’ Name, AMEN!

About Pastor Lawrence A. Fox

We believe that along with many others, we are called by Jesus Christ to engage in a world-wide effort to reach those in and out of the Christian world with the message of full salvation and healing in His name. This effort starts in our own hearts through the power of the ministry of the Holy Spirit. It then finds growth and nourishment in the fellowship of the local church and fans out through every believer’s home, in our neighborhoods, with our relatives, in the workplace and in every human interaction that we engage in on this side of eternity. We are excited to be ambassadors for God in bringing His message to a lost and dying world. II Corinthians 5:18-20 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.
