Christians Are Untouchable When Filled With The Holy Spirit
(Passage: Matthew 21)
Jesus operated with Holy Spirit to defeat his foes when he was on earth fulfilling his ministry. At a particular instance, the Pharisees (a religion sect) attempted to trick the Son of God with a question that would grant them an excuse to rouge him into committing violating their rules.
The enemies wanted Jesus to make any statement that would earn them an opportunity to grab him for persecution, but Jesus proved them wrong. He outsmarted them with a response that kept them confused. Once the enemies realized they wouldn’t confront Jesus’s wisdom, they became quiet and let the water find its course.
The Holy Spirit helped Jesus prevail over his foes! The Pharisees were much older than Jesus; they were also religious scholars. Christ had not stepped to religion school confused them with his wisdom. The secret of his success was the Holy Spirit!
The Bible reported;
“Now when He (Jesus Christ) Came into the temple, the chief priests and the elders of the people confronted Him as He was teaching, and said, “By what authority are You doing these things? And who gave you this authority?” But Jesus answered and said to them, “I also will ask you one thing, which if you tell Me, I likewise will tell you by what authority I do these things: The baptism of John—where was it from? From heaven or from men?”
And they reasoned among themselves, saying, “If we say, ‘From heaven,’ He will say to us, ‘Why then did you not believe him?’ But if we say, ‘From men,’ we fear the multitude, for all count John as a prophet.” So they answered Jesus and said, “We do not know.” And He said to them, “Neither will I tell you by what authority I do these things” (Matthew 21:23-26).
The Holy Spirit Empowers All Christians To Overcome Temptation
The Holy Spirit empowers Christians to live triumphantly on earth. A person who allows the Spirit of God to rule him will prevail over any trials and temptations they might be faced with.
The Holy Spirit will enhance the person’s strength and knowledge to properly handle a difficult situation to glorify God. However, for the invincible Spirit of God to completely take charge in a person’s life, he (or she) must have had his heart properly set on God.
Most importantly, the person must have accepted Jesus Christ as the Lord of his life! That is, he must have declared Jesus as the Son of God and accepted him as his Savior. Once these conditions are satisfied, the Divine Spirit of God will take charge to rule the person and make him live a life free of troubles.
Holy Spirit is the best gift and tool that God has given human beings. The Holy Spirit helps us overcome temptations and make the right decisions in life. We must pray for the Holy Spirit to fill us so that we can be fulfilled and live happily.Click to tweet
