Holy Spirit…Our Personal Trainer

Holy Spirit wants to be your personal trainer.

Have you ever thought of hiring a personal trainer? One hour of watching “The Biggest Loser” leaves me with mixed feeling on the subject. Obviously the benefits of a personal trainer are exponential for anyone determined to get physically fit.

   Do you think having a personal spiritual trainer would benefit your people? That’s why the Father sent Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost. He knew we would need a helper that would instruct, guide and inspire us to be like Christ.
      The benefits of His role as a personal trainer doesn’t stop with advice; He empowers us to do His will. Far too many people in our Pentecostal churches today don’t even know who He is much less how to tap into the benefits that come with Spirit filled living.

Let me give you one example…
   Patt came from a rough part of town with high crime and low income. He came to see a drama at our church and accepted Christ as His Savior. He was dramatically changed. He was passionate about the things of God and the church fell in love with Him.
     Patt received the Holy Spirit at youth camp. God told Patt to cut off his dreadlocks. Patt obeyed. I’d been away speaking for a few weeks and when I got back to church I didn’t recognize him. He explained to me the change that had taken place in his life.

I didn’t see Pat again for a few more weeks, traveling again, but when I returned I made a point to say hello. Patt is one of those young men that just lights up your heart, so I was excited to see how he was doing. After chatting briefly, I asked, “Patt, are you praying in tongues regularly?”

     Patt looked puzzled. “No. Am I supposed to?” I chatted with him briefly about the importance of praying in tongues. He promised to pray about whether he should do it or not; which I thought was a great answer. No one should swallow everything they hear. However, everyone should know there is more to it than a one-time experience or only speaking in tongues. Patt lacked the knowledge of who Holy Spirit really is and how to access the wisdom, guidance and power that is available to every believer to live a Spirit-filled life.
Is it really important?
Got questions about Holy Spirit?

Got questions about Holy Spirit?

Does it really matter that we are Pentecostal? Does it matter in today’s church culture? It does matter. The infilling  takes believers into a deeper, fuller relationship with God. The benefits of living a Spirit filled life is experiencing the partnership of Holy Spirit guiding, empowering and transforming every area of a believer’s life. I am not talking about a one-time experience. I am referring to building on a relational experience that moves forward into everyday life; like a wedding should move into a deeper, fuller lifelong relationship.

 

 Being Pentecostal does not mean being emotional…
but it does mean you embrace the reality of the indwelling presence of Holy Spirit to influence and empower your everyday life. Being truly pentecostal will touch your emotions, your values and the way you live all of your life. It won’t make you perfect, but it will take you on a journey to diligently nourish and cultivate the fruit of the Spirit. It is important to understand that the fruits are grown and  gifts are bestowed. That’s why the infilling, indwelling, ongoing partnership of precious Holy Spirit is so important.

the book “Precious Holy Spirit” is great for :

  • new converts,
  • gifts for your staff
  • small group Bible studies.
  • I hope you’ll check out the first chapter on line.
