In continuation of his series on the Holy Spirit, Pastor Taiwo at the June 30 Family Sunday service said that partnership and participation with the Holy Ghost is the key to having a successful Christian life. This, he noted, must be consciously sought and constantly worked on. “Thirst for the Holy Ghost and constantly acknowledge Him in all you do,” he said.
Speaking from John 7:37-39, he stated that this fellowship with the Holy Spirit can be effected and sustained through constant fellowship with other believers, dwelling on the Word of God and praying. In his words, “You can’t keep coming and drinking and your life will not reflect Him. It takes the power of the Holy Spirit to refrain from anger, lust, and to have good character. It takes power to do exploits.”
He enjoined them never to take for granted the presence of the Holy Spirit in and around them, advising them to constantly fellowship with Him. “It doesn’t cost you anything to tell the Holy Spirit what you are about to do. Partnership with the Holy Ghost keeps you in control,” he stated.
“LET THE HOLY SPIRIT”
Pastor Taiwo @ Thursday Showers
Pastor Taiwo told the worshippers at the June 27 Thursday Showers service that the Holy Spirit is always ready to work in them if they are ready and willing to allow Him. He further said that the Holy Spirit is the right of every believer but His impacts would not be seen if believers do not allow Him to work in and through them. “You don’t have to abandon Him and be running helter-skelter,” he said.
Dwelling on John 7: 37-39 and Isaiah 44:3, he said that the Holy Spirit is the living water and Source for those who trust and accept Him. He noted that continuously coming to and drinking from Him, which is fellowship, is vital to quenching believers’ thirst and cravings. “You may have problems with men but you can trust the Holy Spirit to always help you,” he stated.
He then urged them never to shut the Holy Spirit up but to always allow Him work in their lives thereby making them a source of blessing to others. “As you drink, you would flow and also touch others,” he said.
