Set Free by the Holy Spirit
Jesus answered and said to him,”Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” Nicodemus said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? He cannot enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born, can he?” Jesus answered, “Truly, truly I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows where it wishes and you hear the sound of it, but do not know where it comes from and where it is going; so is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”
Today is the day to ask God for spiritual eyesight so that our thoughts might be focused on our Lord and Savior and our hearts might be firmly fixed on Him. How can we stay on the narrow path if we don’t have our eyes fixed on Jesus? If for a moment we look back at the world and desire its ways and pursuits, our spiritual eyesight becomes dim and we forget why we have been striving to walk on such a tough and narrow path. Our enemy the Devil, takes full advantage of this and entices us off of the road to life and unless God intervenes we will never escape from this trap.
To all of my brothers and sisters I say – Wake up! Pray for a fresh filling of the Holy Spirit! Embrace the Lord Jesus with all your heart! The Holy Spirit is able to set us fee from the bondage of sin and a lukewarm love for our Savior. Oh Lord, these are the times of great drowsiness and compromise with the world! Help us to shake off all compromise with sin and not to play with it! Lord, wake us up! Shake us up today! Set our hearts on fire for You!
Let us reestablish nightly prayer in our homes and with our families. Let us reestablish nightly Bible time and reading with our families. Let us turn off everything that hinders us from spending time with God. Let us honor the Sabbath and keep it Holy as it says in Isaiah 58:13-14. These are wicked times we live in and if we don’t make some radical changes in our lifestyle to spend time with God we will be swept away on the current of sin. We must hold fast to the Word of Life now more than ever!
May God be with each of you today. We have all been called by Jesus and must not delay in picking up our cross and following after Him. We are blessed to be children of the Living God! Oh, let us take full advantage of that blessing!
