Have You Received the Holy Ghost?

Receiving the Holy Spirit is a wonderful experience. New converts may feel that this is the end of their search for God, and the rest of their lives will be a breeze. After all, God is not only with them but has taken up residence within them.  Receiving the Spirit may be the end of their search for God, but it is only the beginning of their walk with God. The term new birth is an apt description of the salvation experience.  We all have to keep growing in God's grace. Just as babies grow to physical maturity, as newly born Christians, we must continue to grow spiritually.  When new believers begin to walk with God, they soon find that even though the Holy Spirit is in them, their human wills and freedom of choice are still intact. It may come as a surprise to find that God does not control their actions as a puppeteer controls a puppet.  Although we are saved by God’s grace and not by our own works, we must choose whether to follow God’s direction or go our own ways. Why not make your decision today and never, never look back.  Looking back puts one in a category of being not fit for the kingdom.  Amen?
