New Update
Dear Manmin members! First, I give thanks to the Lord for leading us, and to you who have been praying for missionary works in Russia for a long time. It is more difficult to proclaim the Gospel than before, due to the emergence of new legislations which persecute churches. ...

[Whit Sunday Special] The Holy Spirit helps us

01 Believe in the Holy Spirit who is in us

Acts 2:38 says, ...Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. As said, God gives the Holy Spirit to anyone who repents of his sins, and accepts Jesus Christ as Savior.

Although the Holy Spirit is invisible, God has shown many evidences that the Holy Spirit exists. John 1:32 says, 쏧 have seen the Spirit descending as a dove out of heaven, and He remained upon Him, and Acts 2:1-4 says, 쏻hen the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. And suddenly there came from heaven a noise like a violent rushing wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. And there appeared to them tongues as of fire distributing themselves, and they rested on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit was giving them utterance.

By the fullness of the Spirit, the apostles preached the words with authority, which brought thousands of people to repent and kneel before the name of the Lord Jesus. They also performed many miracles such as making a lame man walk.

We call Jesus Christ our Lord, and God our Father. We worship God, sing praises and pray to God. It셲 all because the Holy Spirit is in us.

Some may worry and say, 쏧s the Holy Spirit really in me? I committed this sin. What if the Holy Spirit is quenched? Unless they have a roadside-like heart-field to doubt, judge, and condemn the word of God, however, most of them receive the Holy Spirit. Even if they committed sins, God forgives them if they repent and live by the word of God again. So the Holy Spirit is not easily quenched.

To manage a Christian life that the Holy Spirit helps, you must believe that He is in you, and you must trust Him. You must believe that He is the Helper, and rely on Him all the time (Ephesians 6:18).

When you put aside your old ways of life and live by the will of God, if you trust in and depend on the help of the Holy Spirit, He will help you do what you cannot do, and understand what you cannot understand.

02 Don셳 ignore the words of goodness that the Holy Spirit gives to you

The Holy Spirit helps us understand goodness through the words of God, or His voice. If you think the message doesn셳 apply to you, and close your heart, however, you cannot understand goodness. Neither you can cultivate the heart of goodness, nor your faith can grow up.

It is to say, for example, 쏧 can셳 reach such a high level of goodness. I can셳 do it with my measure of faith, while the Holy Spirit helps you understand the way to accomplish the highest level of goodness and the grown up measure of faith through such messages as spiritual love, goodness, and fruits of the Holy Spirit in order to guide you to New Jerusalem, the most beautiful place in Heaven.

God looks at you with the eyes of faith that you can cultivate the highest level of goodness, and that you can possess the great faith like that of the patriarchs. He teaches you what you have to understand and what you have to do.

Chances are that, however, even though the Holy Spirit helps you, you simply ignore Him. For example, the Holy Spirit helps you realize how great God셲 love is, but you ignore His help, and say, 쏧셶e never felt or experienced God셲 love. So I can셳 love Him. You use fleshly thoughts that stand against God, and ignore the words of goodness. If you keep ignoring the teachings of the Holy Spirit, you cannot take any thoughts of goodness that the Holy Spirit gives you. You cannot receive God셲 love and grace, either.

If you say 쁀men to the words of goodness that the Holy Spirit gives you, you will understand the goodness of God and feel the love of God by the help of the Holy Spirit, which will lead you to a happy Christian life.

03 Live by the will of God through the guidance of the Holy Spirit

When the Holy Spirit leads God셲 children to live by the will of God, you should have the willingness to live by God셲 will.

You should not load all the responsibilities on the Holy Spirit. You should also try to understand what He is teaching you, and to practice what you understand.

Those who truly believe that the Holy Spirit is in them, they listen to the Word and pray in order to receive the guidance of the Holy Spirit. They beat themselves into obedience to obey the teachings of the Holy Spirit.

Even when it is difficult to obey the teachings of the Holy Spirit, they say, 쏝ecause the Holy Spirit is in me, I can do it, and they depend on Him. You need this approach and effort in the beginning. As time goes by, and as your deeds accumulate, it becomes easy to hear the Holy Spirit셲 voice and receive His guidance, which makes it possible for you to manage a Christian life that the Holy Spirit helps.

The Holy Spirit is the love of God the Father who understands the weakness of human beings. Therefore, if the Holy Spirit helps, thanks to His love and strength, you can easily do what you cannot do.
