THE MINISTRY OF THE SPIRIT

THE MINISTRY OF THE SPIRIT

Likewise, the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

(Romans 8:26)

How beautiful it is to be a custodian of this great spirit of God. It is truly amazing that God thought of giving every believer a feel of his presence at all times. God knew that in and by ourselves there is little we can achieve, so as the loving Father that He is, He made provision for every believer to share in the God-kind of life, and enjoy the presence of the spirit at all times. The spirit of God is the life-giving spirit that enables every believer to adapt and maximize his new being in Christ Jesus. The spirit is our ever-present help in becoming and attaining spiritual maturity and enjoying the supernatural life of authority, dominion, and power available in Christ Jesus. In all, the Holy Ghost is best considered as the believer’s companion, guide, and Teacher. 

  The spirit of God is like the “settings” app that is a pre-installed system app on every mobile phone. It is a follow-come package with redemption, in fact, it is one of the enablers of salvation, 1 Corinthians 12:3 says “Therefore I make known to you that no one speaking by the Spirit of God calls Jesus accursed, and no one can say that Jesus is Lord except by the Holy Spirit”. This simply means the spirit of God aids the birth into this new life for believers. Like the settings app, which is a multifunction and essential application on the phone that helps the user customize, maximize, utilize and enjoy the usage of his phone, the holy spirit is equally very essential to the journey of the believer. With the help of the Holy Spirit, we can enjoy our relationship with God and find fulfillment in serving our purpose. 

   Imagine that as seemingly stress-free as praying is, we are assured of the holy spirit’s help, how much more, intensely tedious and tasking activities. It gives us a sense of confidence and reliance on the presence of God in our activities. As believers, He helps us to be super conscious of the presence of God in our day-to-day activities and helps us cast our fears on God because we know he cares for us. When we face challenges, the Holy Spirit brings out the superhero potential in us, by manifesting the wisdom and power of God to give us victory in our endeavors. We are like ordinary Men strapped into a hi-tech defensive suit like Iron-man’s, which gives us extraordinary abilities to surpass human limitations. All of this is the ministry and manifestation of the spirit of God in every believer. Receive and acknowledge the ministry of the spirit and enjoy all there is to enjoy in Christ Jesus.
