CHRISTIAN LIFE GUIDED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT
(John 14:15-17) "15 If ye love me, keep my commandments. 16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever-17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world can not receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him, because dwelleth with you and shall be in you. "The Spirit, like fire, melts the heart, burns the dross, and turn pious and devout affections in the soul, which, like the fire of the altar, the spiritual sacrifices are offered that are our very lives as a living sacrifice for our God. The apostles were filled with the gifts of the Holy Spirit had miraculous powers for the advancement of the sound doctrine of Christ, this is the gospel that Jesus left us. The apostles spoke, not of thoughts or previous meditations, but as the Spirit gave them utterance.
The Church knows that she was born in the Resurrection of Christ, but is confirmed by the coming of the Holy Spirit. It is until then that the Apostles understand just what were called by Jesus to which were prepared during the three years of living intimately with Him Pentecost is like the "anniversary" of the Church. The Holy Spirit descends upon rising and fearful that community, instilling upon her his seven gifts, giving them the courage to announce the Sound Doctrine of Christ That Is The Good News of Jesus to preserve in the truth, as Jesus had promised (Jn 14:15) "If ye love me, keep my commandments", to arrange to be his witnesses, to go, baptize, and teach all nations.
It is the Holy Spirit, more than two thousand years now, continues to fall on those who believe that Christ came, died, rose again and is at the right hand of God the Father pleading for us, about who we know we are part and continuation of that small community now spread over many places, about whom we know we are responsible for continuing to extend his Kingdom of love, justice, truth and peace among men, women, youth, children and elderly wherever Christ has placed us, to make your will.For forty days after his resurrection, Jesus was with his disciples. He was more than five hundred people who saw it firsthand.
Surely, the disciples were very happy to have with them to their beloved Master. They thought, after his death, that he had lost forever. Now he was alive! However, I started to say that he would have to go. How would take it? Of course, were puzzled face the possibility that their Master retired.However, Jesus had said something surprising. To his disciples he said: (John 16:7) "I agree that I go away, for if I do, the Comforter will not come to you, whereas if I go, I will send it to you." Although I would miss, it was better to leave. Why? Because it would be another to take his place.
Who would take the place of Jesus? Who would take his place? Only one who was God. It should be one that is a person too. The Holy Spirit is not a force. Nor is it a ghost. A person, who is God with the Father and the Son and that Jesus was sent and also the Holy Spirit was sent by the Lord God.Where is the father now? She's in heaven. Where is the Son? It is seated at the right hand of God. The way in which God is present with us is through His Spirit. God himself had spoken through his prophets in the time of fulfillment pour out His Spirit upon all sorts of people, not only on the servers of the people. Now Jesus had finished His work of redemption, it was time to take the next step.
Let us, then, to (Acts 1:1-5), and read the first five verses: "1 The former treatise, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began to do and teach, 2 until the day He was taken up, after giving instructions through the Holy Spirit to the apostles whom he had chosen: 3 To whom also, having shewed himself alive with many convincing proofs, appearing to them during forty days and speaking about the kingdom of God . 4 And while staying with them he charged them not to depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me. 5 For John baptized with water, but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days. John the Baptist had baptized people in water as a sign of repentance, but now Jesus would baptize with the Holy Spirit. "
Let us now read verses (Acts 1:6-11) "6 When they had gathered asked him, saying: Lord, You are restoring the kingdom to Israel at this time? 7 And he said unto them for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority; 8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, throughout Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. 9 And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up, and a cloud received him out of their sight. 10 And while they looked steadfastly into the sky as he went up, behold, stood by them two men in white apparel, 11 who also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come as you have seen him go into heaven ".The disciples want to know about restoring the kingdom to Israel, but Jesus tells them that's not important now. We want to know all the details of God's prophetic plan, but the Lord has not revealed the dates and hours. Now there is nothing more important - the coming of the Holy Spirit. There are three important details here. First, the coming of the Holy Spirit would bring something better. Although it was great to have Jesus there present with them, the coming of the Holy Spirit, and as Holy Person Brings Blessings different as the revelation of the Father of what is written and inspired by the Holy Spirit, and He distributes the gifts as He wills .
Have you ever thought it would be wonderful to see Jesus Christ in the flesh? One day you will see, and be glorious. However, we have the presence of His Holy Spirit in us, preparing us for that glorious moment. The presence of the Holy Spirit in us is a good thing. It is not something to fear or to cause fear.Secondly, the coming of the Holy Spirit would bring power. The presence of the Holy Spirit in every believer in Jesus Christ is the source of supernatural power. There are many believers who have not learned to let that power be manifested in their lives, but this does not mean that power is not present. The fact that the lights are off in the house does not necessarily mean that there is no electricity.Third, the power that brings the Holy Spirit is primarily able to testify. There are many other wonderful things the Holy Spirit does in us, enlightens us, convicts us, comforts us, heals us - all these things are very special. However, when Jesus promises his disciples that they would receive the Holy Spirit, He does not mention any of these things. It only mentions the power to witness.
Many people ask: When I am baptized in the Holy Spirit? When does The my life? The Bible is very clear on the Sound Doctrine of Christ. If we have become believers in Christ, have been baptized in the Holy Spirit. First (1 Corinthians 12:13) says it very clearly: "For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free-and we were all made to drink into one Spirit." If we have received Christ, and thus become part of your body, have been baptized in the Holy Spirit.However, for the disciples, it was different. His baptism in the Holy Spirit came after they had come to believe in Jesus Christ. This is due to the place they occupied in the history of salvation, the Holy Spirit came to fill the Church, so that all who received him at the same time.Let's see how it happened, reading (Acts 2:1-8) "1 When the day of Pentecost, they were all together. 2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting, 3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. 5 Now there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men from every nation under heaven. 6 And at this sound the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language. 7 And they were all amazed and marveled, saying, Behold, are not all these which speak Galileans? 8 How do therefore hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born? ".
Where were the disciples? Verse 2 says they were in a house, but sometimes the temple is called a house in the book of Acts. It would be logical, then, to assume that they were in a room of the temple, it would explain why so many people so quickly met when they began to speak in tongues. To announce the arrival of the Holy Spirit, there was a big gust of wind, and saw flames of fire on the heads of each of the followers of Jesus. The wind represents the Holy Spirit, for He is invisible as the wind, but its effects are visible and palpable. The fire brings purification, and the Spirit of God brings holiness to the people that He fills.


At the same time, they were baptized by the Holy Spirit, and were filled with the Holy Spirit. We said verse 4. For the apostles, the baptism with the Holy Spirit and the filling of the Holy Spirit happened at the same time. However, to us, may be different.We have already mentioned that we are baptized with the Holy Spirit at the time to believe in Christ. In contrast, (Ephesians 5:18-20) tells us to be filled with the Holy Spirit: "18 Do not be drunk with wine, wherein is excess, but be filled with the Spirit, 19 speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your hearts, 20 giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. "We are baptized with the Holy Spirit at the time to believe in Christ, and probably will not see the same evidence that they were on that day. The truth is we can not control the Holy Spirit. He moves as He wills. However, we can prepare our lives for your move. We can also hinder His work in us. If we have sin in our lives, if we walk separate from God or no God actively seek, it is unlikely that the Spirit fills us with power. But if we confess any sin that God brings to our attention and we leave, if we spend time with God and if we ask that your Spirit to fill us and prepare us for the fullness of the Spirit.
The gifts of the Spirit are different, so we should not think that all speak in tongues when the Holy Spirit fills. However, what we can know is that He will bring a new power. The results of the infilling of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost were amazing. The apostle Peter, the one who had been so afraid of the night Jesus was betrayed he had denied his Lord, now stood before thousands of people and preached the Word of God. Powerfully called his listeners to recognize that Jesus is the Savior, the Messiah sent by God. Now read the last part of your message, in (Acts 2: 36-41) "36 Know, then, let all the house of Israel, that this Jesus, whom you crucified, God has made Lord and Christ. 37 On hearing this, they were cut to the heart and said to Peter and the other apostles, 'Brothers, what shall we do? 38 Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, as many as the Lord our God shall call. 40 And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this perverse generation. 41 Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and there were added that day about three thousand souls ".
With power, the Holy Spirit moved in the hearts of the hearers of Peter, and were convinced of their sin. You know, when you share the gospel with someone, does not touch you convince. The Holy Spirit does that. Peter simply was obedient, and the Holy Spirit used. The result of Peter's preaching was that the Church of Christ was founded with more than 3,000 members in its first day. And the promise is this: every person who repents and believes in Jesus as Lord and Savior - a decision that is sealed with water baptism - receive the same Holy Spirit that the apostles received at Pentecost.If you're looking for the power the Holy Spirit gives you, the first thing necessary is to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. If you accept it, the Holy Spirit will come and dwell in your heart. Not necessarily expect to hear a sound or feel something special when He comes, many big believers have not felt anything when the Holy Spirit came into their lives.
If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, are you allowing the Holy Spirit to fill you? He is in your heart. God wants to surprise you with the power of his Spirit. I want to challenge you personally - and I want to challenge us as a church - to begin to expect the Spirit to move among us.How many things do in reliance on the Holy Spirit? The is the fuel that moves the Church! But many times, we have so much activity that is merely human. Learn to depend on the Holy Spirit, and expect Him to do amazing new things.
If you are willing to invite the Holy Spirit to move in your life in a new way, I invite you to note that decision later this morning. The Holy Spirit is sensitive, so you should take a moment to apologize for not listening to his voice before. Then invite them to take the wheel of your life. If you want to make that decision, do it now.
The Holy Spirit and the Christian Life
From Baptism, the divine Spirit dwells in the Christian and in his temple (Rom 8:9-11) "9 But ye are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if the Spirit of God dwells in you. And if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is not His. 10 And if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin, yet your spirit is alive because of righteousness. 11 And if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you, "(1 Cor 3:16)" Do not know that you are God's temple and that God's Spirit dwells in you? ", (Rom 8:9)" But ye are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if the Spirit of God dwells in you. And if any man have not the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him. " Thanks to the power of the indwelling Spirit, the Father and the Son come to dwell also in each of us.
THE GIFT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT IS THAT:1. rises and assimilates us to God in our being and in our actions;Two. allows us to know and love him;Three. makes us open to the divine persons and to stay in us.
The Christian life is a spiritual existence, a life animated and guided by the Spirit of holiness or perfection of charity. Thanks to the Holy Spirit and guided by Him, the Christian has the strength to fight against all that opposes God's will. (Gal 5:13-18) "13 For, brethren, were called to freedom, only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but through love serve one another. 14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. 15 But if you bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another. 16 I say then, Walk in the Spirit and not fulfill the lust of the flesh. 17 For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary to one another, to not do what you want. 18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. "
(Rom 8:5-17) "5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh, but those who are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. 6 For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. 7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be 8 and those who are in the flesh can not please God. 9 But ye are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if the Spirit of God dwells in you. And if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is not His. 10 And if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin, yet your spirit is alive because of righteousness. 11 And if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you. 12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh-13 for if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body you will live. 14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. 15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father! 16 The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of God. 17 And if children, then heirs, heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may be glorified with him. "
For the Christian to fight, the Holy Spirit gives him his seven gifts, which are permanent dispositions which make man docile in following the promptings of the Spirit, these gifts are:
1) Wisdom tells us a taste for the things of God.2) Science: teaches us to give to earthly things its true value.3) Tip: it helps us resolve conflicts Christian judgment of life.4) Piety: teaches us to relate to God as our Father and with our brothers.5) Fear of God leads us to turn away from anything that might offend God.6) Understanding: it gives us a deeper understanding of the truths of faith.7) Strength: boldness awakened in us that drives us to the apostolate and helps us overcome the fear of defending the rights of God and of others.
EXPERIENCES OF THE HOLY SPIRIT IN LIFE WHEN YOU REPRESENT EVIDENCE:1) When there is a total hope prevails over all other private hopes, covering with its softness and its silent promise all the foundations and all falls.2) When freely accepts and takes responsibility where no prospects for success are clear and useful;3) When good is given as the sum of all accounts of life that one can not calculate it but has given Another good, but can not be proven;4) When the fragmented experience of love, beauty and joy are captured live simply and as a promise of love, beauty and joy, without doubt a cynical skepticism cheap consolation last grief;5) When the daily life, bitter, disappointing and annihilating you live with serenity and perseverance to the end, accepted by a force whose origin we can not cover or dominate;6) When you run the risk of praying in silent darkness through knowing that we are always listened to, though not perceive a response that can reason and dispute;7) When you surrender surrender unconditionally and this is experienced as a victory;8) When experiencing despair, and mysteriously feels comforted inconsolable easy: There is God and His liberating grace, there know who we Christians call God's Holy Spirit.
Prayer:The wise man knows that he needs light in their intelligence and strength in their willingness to think and do what God wants. That light and that strength only comes from above, it is the Holy Spirit who provides the Christian with everything you need for your journey through life. So every day we should invoke it.
Come, Divine Spirit, send your light from the sky. Loving Father Jehovah God Blessed the poor; Grande in your gifts splendid light penetrate souls largest source of consolation. Come, sweet Lord God of our soul, rest of our effort; break in the hard work, breeze in the hours of fire wipes tears joy and comfort in duels. Get to the bottom of our souls, Divine Light, and enrich us. Look at the emptiness of man if thou fouls inside, look at the power of sin when you do not send your breath. Water the soil in drought, heals the heart sick, wash the stains, heat infuses life in the ice. Dressage indomitable spirit guides the twisting path. Spread seven gifts according to the faith of your servants. For your goodness and your grace, give the effort their merit; saves seeking salvation and give us your eternal joy. AMEN.
