Doing the right thing: I’ve been around the bush a few times, and have found ….always ….just because you know the right thing to do… walk the straight line… say the appropriate thing… doesn’t always mean that you follow your own good advice. Sometimes…we NEED a good reminder.
…Often times….we MUST be reminded to do the right thing… say the right thing… and be the right person… That inner voice…. Offering…just a “gentle hint,” which is NORMALLY all we need. A little push in the right direction.
Who, or what… is that “inner-voice?” Well…it’s the Holy Spirit talking to us. It is the Holy Spirt who is generally the One who is reminding us…if not, then our Spouse; our best friend, or maybe our boss…someone…normally… is there trying to us from ourselves.
Our part…. The Bottom Line: Listen ….pay attention. We all know right from wrong. Ninety-nine percent of the time…it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know right from wrong. Our parents taught us “that” from infancy. Our teachers, preachers… all… are looking out for us.
Acts 1:8 “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
Once more He is named by the personal pronoun “the Holy Spirit” and He is the same source of this power that the apostle’s received…and when they were to receive the Holy Spirit of God… He will give them the very power of God which will come upon them… and also will come upon those who believe in the Son of God.
