The Holy Spirit

Holy Spirit Stained Glass

The Holy Spirit will help the sincere believer with any problem he or she may struggle with.  We are guaranteed help as we attempt to overcome temptations in this world. If we will but turn to our heavenly father and trust that our help is here, we will find that we are never alone.

There are so many seemingly insurmountable troubles and temptations that are within this world; these can take us off of the narrow road to Christ and put us back onto the broad highway that leads away from God.

It doesn’t matter what the dilemma or struggle is, though, because there are many.

English: A sad person

Christians today are dealing with the temptations of internet pornography, cybersex, and internet addiction itself. Christians are tempted to engage in premarital sex, and a host of other things that can distract us and trap us in the mire of the world, making us ineffective for Christ; nevertheless, there is hope!

“And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.” John 14:16-18 (KJV)

Turning to the Holy Spirit is the answer. Throwing ourselves upon the mercy of God and begging Him to give us the strength of His Holy Spirit so that we can fight any battle and come out victorious is the answer.

  2. love it!

  3. So good! Just what I needed to read!

  4. Interestingly, Augustine probably did more harm to blight people’s attitude towards sexuality than many before or after him.
    Strange people there ‘Church Fathers’ , very strange.
    And sin is such a church notion as well. Why use such a redundant word in the first place?

  5. Aye, Lady Soul, who moves over the waters,
    and calms or storms – depending on the day of the month.

    May she raise the sword of righteousness once more,
    And may The King of Kings within
    Rise to the occasion.

    This is The Age Of The Spirit, though we be the comfort-creatures.
    Hoping all is well with you and yours. Have a safe and happy 4th! 🙂 UT
