Today, As You Think About Your Relationship With God, Remember That The Holy Spirit Is Your Guide To Life In Christ

Today, As You Think About Your Relationship With God, Remember That The Holy Spirit Is Your Guide To Life In Christ
READ: Titus 3:1-11

According to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit. —Titus 3:5

By the time he was 16, Morris Frank (1908–1980) had lost his sight in both eyes. Several years later, he traveled to Switzerland where he met Buddy, the canine who would help to inspire Frank’s involvement with the Seeing Eye guide-dog school.

With Buddy leading the way, Frank learned to navigate busy sidewalks and intersections. Describing the freedom his guide provided, Frank said, “It was glorious: just [Buddy] and a leather strap, linking me to life.” Buddy gave Morris Frank a new kind of access to the world around him.

God’s Holy Spirit gives us access to abundant spiritual life in Christ. When we accept Christ as Lord, God washes our sins away and renews us “by the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior” (Titus 3:5-6 NIV). Once we know Christ, the Holy Spirit helps us experience God’s love (Rom. 5:5), understand God’s Word (John 14:26), pray (Rom. 8:26), and abound in hope (Rom. 15:13).

Today, as you think about your relationship with God, remember that the Spirit is your guide to life in Christ (Rom. 8:14). —Jennifer Benson Schuldt

Holy Spirit, Light divine,
Shine upon this heart of mine.
Chase the shades of night away;
Turn my darkness into day. —Reed

The Holy Spirit guides us into knowledge and spiritual growth.

Bible in a year: Judges 1-3; Luke 4:1-30
Insight

In the book of Titus, Paul instructed his younger co-worker Titus on how to teach believers in the young church of Crete to live holy lives. Paul emphasized the importance of godly leadership (Titus 1) and of gracious behaviour within the church family (ch.2) and in society at large (ch.3).

May God Bless Nigeria, America And Israel And Take Care Of Us; May God Make His Face Shine Upon Us, And Be Gracious To Us; May The Lord Lift Up His Countenance Upon Us, And Give Us Peace, In Jesus Christ Name, We Pray! Amen!

May The Grace The Lord Jesus Christ, And The Love Of God, And The Fellowship Of The Holy Spirit Be With You All. Amen!

  1. Thank you Bummyla, for sharing about God’s gift of animals in such a special way, they are so wonderful, how can anyone not care for them.

    Jesus tells us to seek, ask and knock and we will receive, we ask also for The Holy Spirit and God’s wisdom in Christ Jesus and by the empowering of The Holy Spirit, Jesus leads us into all Truth, The Holy Spirit teaches us God’s Truth as He receives it from The Lord.

    Luke 11:13 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your Heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask Him?

    John 16:13 -15. Howbeit when He, the Spirit of Truth, is come, He will guide you into all Truth: for He shall not speak of Himself but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak: and He will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me: for He shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you. All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that He shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

    I pray not only for Australia but for America, England, Japan, Africa etc and especially for Countries in deep trouble where Christians are being Martyred, we need to be in prayer for all Mankind, Jesus will return soon.

  4. Do not boast about tomorrow,
    for you do not know what a day may bring.

    2 Let someone else praise you, and not your own mouth;
    an outsider, and not your own lips.

    3 Stone is heavy and sand a burden,
    but a fool’s provocation is heavier than both.

    4 Anger is cruel and fury overwhelming,
    but who can stand before jealousy?

    5 Better is open rebuke
    than hidden love.

    6 Wounds from a friend can be trusted,
    but an enemy multiplies kisses.

    7 One who is full loathes honey from the comb,
    but to the hungry even what is bitter tastes sweet.

    8 Like a bird that flees its nest
    is anyone who flees from home.

    9 Perfume and incense bring joy to the heart,
    and the pleasantness of a friend
    springs from their heartfelt advice.

    10 Do not forsake your friend or a friend of your family,
    and do not go to your relative’s house when disaster strikes you—
    better a neighbor nearby than a relative far away.

    11 Be wise, my son, and bring joy to my heart;
    then I can answer anyone who treats me with contempt.

    12 The prudent see danger and take refuge,
    but the simple keep going and pay the penalty.

    13 Take the garment of one who puts up security for a stranger;
    hold it in pledge if it is done for an outsider.

    14 If anyone loudly blesses their neighbor early in the morning,
    it will be taken as a curse.

    15 A quarrelsome wife is like the dripping
    of a leaky roof in a rainstorm;
    16 restraining her is like restraining the wind
    or grasping oil with the hand.

    17 As iron sharpens iron,
    so one person sharpens another.

    18 The one who guards a fig tree will eat its fruit,
    and whoever protects their master will be honored.

    19 As water reflects the face,
    so one’s life reflects the heart.[a]

    20 Death and Destruction[b] are never satisfied,
    and neither are human eyes.

    21 The crucible for silver and the furnace for gold,
    but people are tested by their praise.

    22 Though you grind a fool in a mortar,
    grinding them like grain with a pestle,
    you will not remove their folly from them.

    23 Be sure you know the condition of your flocks,
    give careful attention to your herds;
    24 for riches do not endure forever,
    and a crown is not secure for all generations.
    25 When the hay is removed and new growth appears
    and the grass from the hills is gathered in,
    26 the lambs will provide you with clothing,
    and the goats with the price of a field.
    27 You will have plenty of goats’ milk to feed your family
    and to nourish your female servants.

  5. Then you are to go up with him, and he is to come and sit on my throne and reign in my place. I have appointed him ruler over Israel and Judah.”

    36 Benaiah son of Jehoiada answered the king, “Amen! May the Lord, the God of my lord the king, so declare it. 37 As the Lord was with my lord the king, so may he be with Solomon to make his throne even greater than the throne of my lord King David!”
