No Fear

"If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit" (Galatians 5:25)

What will we find the Holy Spirit to be like? He will be exactly like Jesus. You have read your New Testament, and you know what Jesus is like, and the Holy Spirit is exactly like Jesus, for Jesus was God and the Spirit is God, and the Father is exactly like the Son; and you can know what Jesus is like by knowing what the Father is like, and you can know what the Spirit is like by knowing what Jesus is like.

If Jesus were to come walking down this aisle there would be no stampede for the door. Nobody would scream and be frightened. We might begin to weep for sheer joy and delight that He had so honored us, but nobody would be afraid of Jesus; no mother with a little crying baby would ever have to be afraid of Jesus; no poor harlot being dragged by the hair of her head had to be afraid of Jesus - nobody!

Nobody ever need to be afraid of Jesus, because He is the epitome of love, kindliness, geniality, warm attractiveness and sweetness. And that is exactly what the Holy Spirit is, for He is the Spirit of the Father and the Son. Amen.

In the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, we have God's fullness. He has given us the very same Spirit that dwelt in Him.
