Spirit Given To Who?


We are witnesses of these things, and so is the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to those who obey him.”  Acts 5:32


Some are witnesses to the wonderful workings of God.  The Spirit of God also testifies of this connection and His love.  This Spirit is an immeasurably great Gift given to those special few who take the right path to obtain it.  The Holy Spirit unites us and ties us together with the Father and the Son in a bond deeper than we can imagine.  But who receives this Gift?  Are we the favored ones?

The Bible says that it comes to those who obey.  Does this mean that all the help and wisdom of Heaven is simply handed over to people who have taught themselves to follow a set of rules?  Do this!  Don´t do that!  Is this how the Spirit comes unto us?  Or are the cherished receivers of the Spirit of God carefully chosen children who have shown an interest in the great heart of God?  Are they following His encouragement to make Him the single most important part of their lives?  Is the Reward given to those who don´t get into trouble, or to those who are in trouble but choose to focus on God instead of us and the world we live in?

Shall we pray today to be the kind of worshippers who open their hearts towards Heaven?  Shall we pray to be with Him and care about the wishes of our God and not just His commands?


Dear Lord,

Pour the Holy Spirit into us now!  Please help us to have hearts that show we have pressed hard after Yours and made themselves worthy of having You in us too, we pray!
