Walking in the Spirit
John 14:26 (AMP)
26 But the [a]Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor—Counselor, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name [in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf], He will teach you all things. And He will help you remember everything that I have told you.
The Holy Spirit is with us always just as Jesus promised. He is our helper, our intercessor our counselor and our strength. The sad reality is that some believers don’t have that understanding and thus they miss out on the very help that God has provided for us because of ignoring the person of the Holy Spirit.
2 Corinthians 13:14 (NKJV)
14 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the [a]communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all. Amen.
As a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, you and I must acknowledge the Holy Spirit and His role in our life. We must learn to fellowship with Him on a daily basis allowing Him to lead us to teach us and to help us.
The Greek word for fellowship is the word “koinonia” which means partnership, participation intimacy and communion. It means that we must partner with the Holy Spirit, we must commune with Him learning to recognize His voice, spending time to be intimate with Him.
To fellowship means to share in common meaning then that we should strive to share our lives in common with the Holy Spirit. He should be a part of our daily walk and life. We should be careful to learn His voice and then be sensitive enough to hear and walk in obedience. We should also read and interact with scriptures because as we do that, He will talk to us and teach us the ways of God. We should reach out to Him in prayer and also build intimacy with Him.
1 Corinthians 2:13 (AMP)
13 We also speak of these things, not in words taught or supplied by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, combining and interpreting spiritual thoughts with spiritual words [for those being guided by the Holy Spirit].
Most importantly we should depend on Him in ministry and not lean on the arm of the flesh or operate in our own wisdom. We should allow Him to lead and direct us teaching what He has revealed to us and depending on Him to work in the hearts of men.
The Holy Spirit longs to fellowship with all who have confessed Christ as Lord and not just a chosen few. He will not force Himself on anyone so the honors are on us to seek and develop a relationship with Him.
How often do you fellowship with the Holy Spirit?
Do you recognize His voice, how does He speak to you?
What will you do to have deeper intimacy with Him?
