Benefits of The Holy Spirit. The third person in Trinity is an active part of God that he uses to make all things happen. God does everything through the Holy Spirit. This Spirit of God now lives with every believer.
Christians have the opportunity of maximizing their benefits through the Holy Spirit. The Spirit which manifested his power periodically in the Old Testament has been permanently stationed with the New Testament’s believers.
The Holy Spirit is here just as Jesus Christ promised,
“And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you” (John 14:16-17 NIV). “But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you” (John 14:26 NIV).
Christians must treat the Holy Spirit as our companion to enjoy his full benefits. In other words, you, as a Christian, should daily consult with the Holy Spirit in all matters.
Gospel ministers are God’s servants, and they hold a special place in his mind, and everyone ought to consider them special also.
Paul explained the necessity of honoring and catering for the needs of God’s servants and said,
“Don’t you know that those who serve in the temple get their food from the temple and that those who serve at the altar share in what is offered on the altar? In the same way, the Lord has commanded that those who preach the gospel should receive their living from the gospel” (1 Corinthians 9:13-14 NIV).
They also seek God’s face to properly feed us with the word of God – which is the bread of life.
God’s servants represent God, and we should respect them.
The rule of thumb indicates that whatever honor we give God’s servant is what we technically give to God himself!
Therefore, we believers should utilize every opportunity that we have to minister into the lives of spiritual leaders that we have in our radar.
Remember the main subject:
Every servant of God deserves special honor since he (or she) holds a special place in God’s mind; also, since he may be going out of his ways to represent God and create a positive impact in the lives of others.
Prayer of Grace to Honor God’s Ambassadors – Servants of God
Dear God, I understand that gospel ministers are your ambassadors on earth; therefore, give me the grace to honor them. Empower me to do whatever I have in the capacity to minister to their needs, and let me be a source of courage to their families.
I also pray that you give all your servants peace and joy so that they can continue to do your good works for humanity, and for your kingdom.
Again, please give me the strength to honor every servant of God I have around me!
