Are You Being Shaped by The Holy Spirit?

Hello Everyone,

How are you doing? I hope you've had a lovely week and you're looking forward to a great weekend. I also hope you've had a lovely Easter celebration. 

Yesterday, as I was preparing for the children's Sunday School for this coming Sunday, I pondered on the role of the Holy Spirit that Jesus left with us when He ascended to heaven. Let me give you a little bit of background to the story of Jesus' ascension, you can also read it here and here. 

The friends of Jesus were so pleased that He was alive. One day, Jesus took His disciples up a hill. He explained that the time had come for Him to go back to Heaven. However, He said they would not be left alone because soon a Special Helper called the Holy Spirit would come to them. 

One of the roles of the Holy Spirit is to shape you to become who God has created you to be. He does this by regularly reminding you of what Jesus has taught you. John 14:26 (AMP version) says "But the Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor—Counselor, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name [in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf], He will teach you all things. And He will help you remember everything that I have told you."

Do you allow the Holy Spirit to teach you all things?

Do you respond to His teachings?

Are you being shaped by the Holy Spirit?

The Holy Spirit would like to shape you more in the area of forgiving others. Are you ready to be shaped by Him?

Do you stylishly read someone's social media platform status but you don't want them to know?

Does someone's name pops into your mind and you boil with anger?

Are you a Christian?

Do you know that the journey of Christianity on this earth is a journey of living in forgiveness?

Can you say this prayer? 

Holy Spirit, increase my capacity to love others. 

Increase my capacity to love those that have offended me. 

Increase my capacity to love those that have irritated me or still irritating me in Jesus' name, Amen.

The love of God has been shed upon your heart and God loves you regardless of the stage you are in your spiritual growth. Why not extend the same love of God that you enjoy to others?

The Holy Spirit would like to shape you more in the area of forgiving others. 

Are you ready to be shaped by Him?

Don't resist the help of the Holy Spirit.

I love hearing from you in the comment section. Please take a minute to say hello in the comment section.

Have a lovely Friday!

Yours in Christ,

Mysses Lafunky
