In this day and time it is important to seek wise counsel when it comes to making choices. If you want a great return on your investment, you must first know what to invest in and why.
Well today is your day to be enlightened! God made the ULTIMATE investment in you and I when He sent Jesus to redeem us. If you know anything about God, you know that He is into multiplication. So when He invested Jesus and Jesus came, lived, died and rose again, he deposited into every believer, THE POWER OF GOD in the form of THE HOLY SPIRIT!
Jesus started a great work but had to physically leave. But He didn't leave us empty!
16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever—17 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.
Jesus commissioned us to finish the work, not alone, but with POWER! Only through the POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT can we pray, walk uprightly, love one another or even make it as believers in this world.
You want a great return? You must first acknowledge (recognize the existence and authority) of THE HOLY SPIRIT. Invest time talking to Him, learn about Him and from Him. Delve into a deeper relationship with this Person of the Godhead!
The greater the investment, the greater the return!
Ephesians 3:16 that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man.
LET THE CHURCH SAY AMEN!
