October 1

Thank goodness it’s nearing my birthday! I shattered the screen of my iPad! I use my iPad to do all of my writing, and will probably get Richard to buy me a new one as a birthday gift. I can justify this purchase with God, because it helps me move in my spiritual gift. Speaking of spiritual gifts, it just so happens that I’m in the study of John where Jesus promises the gift of the Holy Spirit, imagine that, what a coincidence. The tragedy of my broken screen gives a way for me to bring up the gift of the Holy Spirit. Did you know that this gift, came with an “if?” Jesus said, “If you love me, you will keep my commandments, and I will ask the Father, and he will give you another helper, to be with you forever.” If you want the Holy Spirit to dwell within you, you have to love Jesus! And if you love him, you will keep his commandments. He makes it easy, but the key is that you must love him. The commandments will fall into place, as you build your love for him. The Spirit is a magnificent gift, and I wouldn’t want to live without him. Love Jesus, and the rest will fall into place.

"Whoever has my commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves me. And he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and manifest myself to him.”"  John 14:21
