He has commissioned us, and He has identified us as His own by placing the Holy Spirit in our hearts as the first installment that guarantees everything He has promised us. – 2 Corinthians 1:22
We can know about God, recite the stories of Jesus, quote scripture and talk the best of religious vocabulary, but only by accepting salvation are we entitled to the promises of God.
As if that was not enough, the free gift of grace comes with a bonus. The Holy Spirit moves in to help us do things we couldnt do before, nor ever thought we could. If we were good, it makes us better. If we were smart, the Spirit adds wisdom. We no longer make decisions alone and the right choice becomes clearer. It is with us every day, guiding us, inspiring us, keeping us company, and reminding us that the best is yet to come.
