The greatest gift of God to humanity is Jesus the son of God. The greatest gift of God to the Church is The Holy Spirit. Jesus brings us into son ship but the Holy Spirit brings us into the manifestation of our son ship.  The greatest promise of God is salvation which came through Jesus Christ.  You can be a son without knowing how to enjoy and manifest your sonship. In fact it could be difficult for people to believe that you are a saved and blood washed child of God without the Holy Spirit. The message of salvation is the most important message for the world and all sinners but how to live a saved life and an overcomer’s life must be the primary focus of the born again man. Once you are born again the primary work of Jesus is completed in bringing you to the father, everything that Jesus will do for you and through you now will be done through the person of the Holy Spirit. Hence failure to build relationship with the Holy Spirit is a recipe for failure in life. 

Jesus said it is to our advantage that He goes to the father so that the Holy Spirit can come, without which He won’t come. The Holy Spirit brings us into all truth and the revelation of a victorious life. Saved people live a life of defeat because they despise their relationship with the Holy Spirit. All that we will enjoy in this life as those who are translated into the Kingdom of God will come through the Holy Spirit. The equipping of a believer is what determines how well he functions in life. Our life is expected to show case glory and virtue because we are now partakers of the divine nature. Putting our capacity in Christ and the glorious nature of our salvation together, it is our relationship with the Holy Spirit that will determine how well you function on the earth to showcase God's glory and influence your world.

Every one of us must come into the understanding on the purpose and the context of the gift of God. The Holy Spirit brings us into the reality of the Christian life and experience. When you don’t take the Holy Spirit serious you get into a disadvantage. We escape the corruption that is in the world through the Holy Spirit. He is our companion and our helper. He helps our infirmity and brings us into the fullness of the father. Start to build a cordial relationship with the Holy Spirit today and your life will become a wonder unto many.

Prayer: Father, I come into a conscious awareness of the person of the Holy Spirit and I choose to build a good relationship with You so as to live the life the Father has ordained for me here in Jesus’ name. Amen.
