Something really caught my attention when I was meditating in this verse: It’s a hint for those who want to be baptised with the Holy Spirit and renewed by God’s presence.
Give a glance to below verse:
“7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you.”
For the Holy Spirit to come, the Helper, Jesus in flesh had to go away.
That’s the link!..If we remain in the flesh, meaning, doing our will, desires and cravings, the Holy Spirit can’t come upon us. When one gives up on his fleshly desires and worldly ways, then the Holy Spirit has space to come and make His dwelling place inside of us.
The aim of this Fast is exactly to let go…Let go of all the fleshly things…Let them go away, so the Spirit of God can come.
Question to think: What do I have to let go!…
