Memories: But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised upChrist from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you. Roman 8:11
Read: Ephesians 1:11-14
11 In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will, 12 that we who first trusted in Christ should be to the praise of His glory.
13 In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, 14 who[a] is the [b]guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory.

When our Lord Jesus Christ was leaving earth, He promised that He will send a Comforter who will teach us all things (John 14:26). That Comforter, who is the Holy Spirit, came on a certain day of Pentecost, and He has been with the Body of Christ ever since then (Acts 2). The Lord sent Him to serve as His representative and empowering, so much so that those who don’t have him or who are not full of His presence do not know what they are missing. He is such a precious Partner in accomplishing the will of God for our lives in this world. Open Heaven (December 22th)(Opens in a new browser tab)
When a person becomes born again, the fellow suddenly begin to feel as unusual peace within. This is the effect of the presence of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit in that person also begin to sound an alarm whenever he or she is about to commit sin. Such a fellow as a choice to either ignore the warning or take heed. If you are a child of God, I am sure you experience this whenever you are about to commit sin. My advice is that you yield to His warning, because the Holy Spirit cab be displaced from a person’s heart. If you often ignore His voice, you will soon realize that you cannot hear him anymore. If you continue living in sin, He will leave and other spirit will take His place (Matthew 12:43-45). May you never experience this in Jesus Name.Open Heaven (December 24) Topic: The Precious Holy Spirit E.A Adeboye
Not only does the Holy Spirit help us to live a holy life, He also teaches and help us to pray (Romans 8:26). Prayer is a way of communicating with our heavenly Father. If you don’t communicate often with your father, your relationship with him will become strained, and you will soon find yourself doing things that are country to His will. Hence, it is important to pray regularly. However, many Christian would rather talk about prayer than pray. The Holy Spirit always nudges us to pray. Whenever you feel this nudges, go to a separate place and pray. Sometimes, it’s not that you don’t want to pray, you just don’t know what to say when you start. Ask the Holy Spirit to help you in some moments. Lastly, what distinguishes our lives as Christians is the fruit of our character. The Holy Spirit influence our character through the manifestation of His fruit in our lives (Galatians 5:22-23). He helps us to live a life filled with love, joy, faith, patience, peace, gentleness, goodness, meekness and temperance. Consciously cultivate a relationship with Him and He will manifest more of His precious works in your life.
