TOPIC: THE HOLY SPIRIT: YOUR INDISPENSABLE ALLY
Fire Scripture: Acts 1:4-8
The indispensability of the Holy Spirit in the life and journey of a believer is rightly and fully underscored in the word of the Bible that says, “…If any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his” (Romans 8:9). The Bible also instructs “And be not drunk with wine, wherein there is excess, but be ﬁlled with the Holy Spirit” (Ephesians 5:18).

The Holy Spirit is a personality. He is the Third Person in the Trinity. He can be attracted or repelled. He can be grieved. He is God with us on earth now. As believers, we are in the dispensation of the Holy Spirit today and He is the Executor of the will of the Father. He also gloriﬁes the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ. The Apostles would always ask those who accept Jesus as their Lord and Saviour, “Have you received the Holy Spirit.”
If the new converts say they have not, the Apostles would pray for them and they would receive the Power of the Highest. Why is this so? The Apostles themselves discovered from experience that the Holy Spirit is every believer’s Enabler, Helper and Spiritual Dynamo.Without the Holy Spirit, no one is guaranteed to succeed in the journey of faith.
Beloved, have you received the Holy Spirit? Do you have a worthwhile relationship with Him? Does He occupy a prominent place in your life? Your answers to these questions speak volume of the kind of believer you are: weak or strong, baby or mature?
You need the Holy Spirit willy-nilly as the cook needs salt and as you need oxygen to survive and live. You can receive and retain the Holy Spirit as your Companion, Best friend, Illuminator, Guide and Energiser by demonstrating genuine hunger and thirst for Him. He is the gift of God the Father and God the Son to believers (John 7:37-39, John 14:16-17). You can also receive Him by asking the Father for Him (Luke 7:7-8; Luke 11:13).
Beloved, the exemplary lifestyle and supernatural achievements of kings and prophets like David, Elijah, Elisha, Daniel as well as the apostles of Jesus Christ are the remarkable works of the Holy Spirit. The same Holy Spirit is at work today. The Lord wants to bring deliverance to His people and He is looking for men and women that He can empower with His Holy Spirit. Are you available?
John 14:26 – But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.”
Motivational Quote: When we have the Holy Spirit, we have all that is needed to be all that God desires us to be.
Prophetic Word: The Holy Spirit will empower you and you will succeed, in the name of Jesus.
HYMN: LET THE FIRE FALL
1. They were gather’d in an upper chamber,
As commanded by the risen Lord,
And the promise of the Father
There they sought with one accord,
When the Holy Ghost from heav’n descended
Like a rushing wind and tongues of ﬁre:
So dear Lord, we seek Thy blessing,
Come with glory now our hearts inspire.
Let the ﬁre fall, let the ﬁre fall,
Let the ﬁre from heaven fall;
We are waiting and expecting,
Now in faith, dear Lord, we call;
Let the ﬁre fall, let the ﬁre fall,
On Thy promise we depend;
From the glory of Thy presence
Let the Pentecostal ﬁre descend.
2. As Elijah we would raise the altar
For our testimony clear and true,
Christ the Saviour, loving, Healer,
Coming Lord, Baptizer too,
Ever ﬂowing grace and full salvation,
For a ruined race Thy love has plann’d;
For this blessed revelation,
For Thy written word we dare to stand.
1. My Father, baptise me with the Holy Spirit and Your ﬁre, in the name of Jesus.
2. Blessed Holy Spirit, empower me to do exploits and to fulﬁl my ministry, in the name of Jesus.
3. Anointing for excellent achievement and accelerated progress, fall upon me, in the name of Jesus.
4. Father, use me for Your glory, in the name of Jesus.
5. Holy Spirit, bless me with diverse gifts for the work of the ministry, in the name of Jesus.
6. Holy Spirit, illuminate me now, in the name of Jesus.
7. Blessed Holy Spirit, glorify the Father and the Son in my life, in the name of Jesus.
