Day 54 – It’s not about you

Galatians 4:4-7 (NLT)
But when the right time came, God sent his Son, born of a woman, subject to the law. 5 God sent him to buy freedom for us who were slaves to the law, so that he could adopt us as his very own children. 6 And because we are his children, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, prompting us to call out, “Abba, Father.” 7 Now you are no longer a slave but God’s own child. And since you are his child, God has made you his heir.

Our praise unto God, the admiration in our hearts toward Him and the awesome feeling we get when we think about Him, all comes from the Holy Spirit within. The Joy of a Spirit-Filled Life comes from knowing God is our Father. As children of God, adopted undeservedly as His very own, the Holy Spirit prompts us to joyfully and gratefully worship God from deep within. The Holy Spirit never draws attention to Himself, but rather points toward the Father and Son. A great life lesson by the way, it is never, ever about you and your little world, it’s about those God has surrounded you with and with you living in a way that honors Him. As soon as it becomes about you, then friend, you need a fresh encounter with the Holy Spirit.
