      God Brings Life  

      Posted: 04 Dec 2010 12:02 AM PST

      Originally written by Charles H. Spurgeon, published in "Mornings & Evenings,"

      "All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit" Acts 2:4  

      Rich were the blessings on the day of Pentecost when the believers were filled with the Holy Spirit. It's impossible to overestimate the consequences of this sacred filling of the soul. Life, comfort, light, purity, power, peace, and many other precious blessings are inseparable from the Spirit's presence.

      As sacred oil, He anoints the head of the believer, sets them apart to the priesthood of saints, and gives them grace to rightly live out their role in His Kingdom.

      As the only truly purifying water He cleanses us from the power of sin and sanctifies us holy, working in us to will and to do the Lord's good pleasure.

      As the light, He made appeal to us even when we were still lost, and now He reveals the Lord Jesus to us and in us, guiding us in the way of righteousness. Enlightened by His pure celestial ray, we no longer stumble in darkness but now walk in the light of the Lord.

      As fire, He both purges us from impurity, and sets our hallowed nature ablaze. He is the sacrificial flame by which we are enabled to offer our whole souls as a living sacrifice to God.

      As heavenly dew, He removes our barrenness and fertilizes our lives. Oh how we yearn that He would drop from above on us at this hour! Such morning dew would be a sweet commencement for the day.

      As the dove, with wings of peaceful love He frets over His Church and the souls of believers. And as a Comforter He dispels the cares and doubts which ruin the peace of His beloved. He descends on the chosen like He did on Lord in Jordan, and bears witness to our status as children of the Lord by working in us a childlike spirit by which we cry "Abba, Father."

      As the wind, He brings the breath of life to His people. He performs the work by which the spiritual creation is given life and sustained. Pray to God that we will feel His wondrous presence today and every day!

      Question: Which of these analogies hit closest to home for you today? Why, and what truth about God does it reveal and reaffirm?
