What Does The Holy Spirit DoFor The Born Again Believer?

What Does The Holy Spirit DoFor The Born Again Believer?
 
The
Holy Spirit possesses a dynamite-like power that works within a
believer to blast out anything that is unlike God.

The
Holy Spirit uses His power to break us so that He might transform our
life. The more we get self out of the way and yield our will to His,
the more He is able to pour Himself out through us to others, and the
more He is able to transform our lives. We are merely the conduits,
the channels through which God’s power moves.

If
we are open and receptive to the Holy Spirit, the following is what
He can do for and through us:

  • He
    Intercedes On Our Behalf, Helps Us In Our Weaknesses, And Teaches Us
    How To Pray.


Romans
8:26-27 (NIV) says
In
the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know
what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us
through wordless groans. And he who searches our hearts knows the
mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people
in accordance with the will of God.”

  • He
    Searches Our Hearts.


Romans
8:27 (NIV) says
And
he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the
Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of
God.”

  • He
    Talks To And Through Us.


Matthew
10:20 (NIV) says
for
it will not be you speaking, but the Spirit of your Father speaking
through you.”

  • He
    Teaches Us All Things, Reminds Us Of Scripture And Guides Us Into
    Truth.


John
14:26 (NIV) says
But
the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name,
will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have
said to you.”


1
Corinthians 2:10-11 (NIV) says

these
are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit. The Spirit
searches all things, even the deep things of God. For who knows a
person’s thoughts except their own spirit within them? In the same
way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God.”

  • He
    Transforms Us Into A New Creation.


2
Corinthians 5:17 (NIV) says

Therefore,
if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone,
the new is here!”

  • He
    Gives Us His Fruit.


Galatians
5:22-23 (NIV) says
But
the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness,
goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such
things there is no law.”

  • He
    Gives Us Gifts For Ministry.

1
Corinthians 12:4-7 (NIV) says

There
are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them.

There are different kinds
of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working,
but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.

Now to each one the
manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good.”

  • He
    Gives Us Power To Live Godly Lives.

We
may look the same on the outside, but inside we are a new creation,
we are born again, with the Holy Spirit and His power.


Ephesians
1:18-20 (NIV) says
I
pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you
may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his
glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great
power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty
strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated
him at his right hand in the heavenly realms.”


Ephesians
3:16 (NIV) says

I
pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power
through his Spirit in your inner being.”


Ephesians
3:20 (NIV) says
Now
to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or
imagine, according to his power that is at work within us.”

We
can apply the benefits and power of the Spirit in our own lives,
understanding what the Spirit does in our life.

  • He
    Gives Us Boldness To Witness.

Acts
1:8 (NIV) says
“But
you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you
will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and
to the ends of the earth.”


Acts
4:29 (NIV) says
Now,
Lord, consider their threats and enable your servants to speak your
word with great boldness.”


Acts
4:31 (NIV) says
After
they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken. And they
were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God
boldly.”

NOTE:
The salvation of souls is a supernatural work only made possible by
the Holy Spirit’s power at work in the world.

  • He
    Gives Us Wisdom And Revelation.


Ephesians
1:17-18 (NIV) says
I
keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious
Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you
may know him better. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be
enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has
called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy
people.”

IMPORTANT
NOTE:

For many of us, the potential which dwells within us, is never
realized because we will not take God at His word.
