"TO MAKE AND MATURE BELIEVERS IN JESUS CHRIST"
I CORINITHIANS 2:11-16 Ephesians 5:8-14 2 Timothy 1: 8-14 The blackout took my neighborhood by surprise. Suddenly in total darkness, I inched my way to the bedside table and fumbled for the flashlight. What frustration... it didn't work. How useless--a flashlight that didn't function. Just as useless is the person unable to function according to God's divine plan. Why? Because God originally designed the human spirit to contain the Holy Spirit. In the garden, Adam and Eve had perfect oneness with God. The Holy Spirit lived in their human spirits and enlightened every aspect of their lives. Once they pronounced their "declaraton of independence" from God, however, sin came in and the Spirit went out. The pair were like a flashight without batteries:with no power on the inside, there was no light on the outside. They spiraled downward into spiritual darkness. Yet God did not give up on all those who were to be born into that same darkness. "The lamp of the Lord searches the spirit of a man" [Proverbs 20:27] God desired to reunite the Holy Spirit with human spirit so that they could again be one. When you feel the frustration of wandering in the dark, know that the Lord has already provided the perfect guide for your live. For "when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth" [John 16:13]. Your own personal Counselor, Convictor and Comforter fills your soul-your mind, will and emotions-with perfect truth. He teaches your mind, directs your will and guides your emotions. As a result, those who are joined to the Spirit better understand spiritual things [ 1 Corinthians 2:14] Like the flashlight, you were designed to shine; but you can never shine with your own power. The Holy Spirit provides the power to produce the light. And once you shine as you were intended to shine, you will never be useless!!!!!!
