Holy Spirit Fall


Spirit_Fall_std_t_nv

Sometimes I wonder why Acts of the Apostles is actually called – Acts of the Apostles. From my understanding of the entire book, there is just one person fueling, empowering and anointing these apostles to work miracles, signs and wonders – the Holy Spirit. So, why is the book not called – The Acts of the Holy Spirit?

What I mean to say is:

If we are to wait for, seek the power the Spirit, that should tell us that we can do nothing without him… Acts 1:8 – you shall receive power…

If we are to walk by the Spirit to be victorious over the flesh, that should cause us to rely on him more… Gal. 5:16-18 – live by the Spirit…

If the only way we can belong to Christ or be a part of Him is through His Spirit, that should speak volumes of how desperately we need him… Rom. 8:9 – we don’t belong to him…

If apart from Him we can do nothing – that we should do everything in our power to abide in Him, we must make time and room for Him. John 15:5 – apart from me…

If we worship by the Spirit and put no confidence in the flesh, than we should who much we need Him. Phil. 3:3 – we put no confidence in the flesh…

If God is actively seeking out worshipers who would worship in Spirit and truth, than we should learn how to become one, and avail ourselves to him.

I guess what I am trying to say is that we need to cultivate a deep awareness of our desperate need for God’s presence to help us in everything we do. Self-sufficiency and self-reliance will not help us at all.

Our prayers and cry must be  - Holy Spirit Fall!
