Thought For Today: “Be Prepared and Ready”
How can we get ready for the Holy Spirit’s work? How can we expect a visitation and work from the Holy Spirit within our lives?
Consider Mary, although she was a sinner, she was considered by God to be highly favored. Mary believed and followed God’s word and when the angel told her this news, she responded by saying she never even knew a man in any sense of that word.
For us, we are sinners saved by God’s grace, which means that our purity, while it may not be physical, we are spiritually pure when we ask the Lord to forgive our sins and then open our lives for the Holy Spirit’s transformative work.
“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:9)
Therefore, we need to clear the way for the Holy Spirit to do this transformative work, and we do so through confession and repentance, which means to turn away from sin and start living the way God has designed.
“From that time Jesus began to preach and to say, ‘Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.’” (Matthew 4:17)
