Acts 1:8 (NET) 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 farthest parts of the earth.”
After Seyi received the revelation that made him realize he was now a new creature because of his faith in Christ Jesus, he knew that he needed to be filled with the Holy Spirit. He kept on reading books about the Holy Spirit and realized that the Holy Spirit is the secret of Holiness. Anyone truly filled with the HOLY Spirit will be HOLY.
He didn’t only want to receive the infilling of the Holy Spirit, he wanted to remain filled for the rest of his life. He knew that was the only way he would stay without backsliding again. Staying on fire for God became his biggest priority in life. He sought this with the whole of his heart. He didn’t want to be a slave to sin any longer. He loved his newfound freedom in Christ and the boldness and authority it brought. He was no longer tormented by demons but now had the power to cast them out, etc.
I have come to realize that if many Christians seek the Kingdom of God the way they seek to have more money, many will be so powerful that their world would have been set on fire for Christ. You cannot seek the Kingdom of God without seeking His righteousness. This righteousness is ministered to your Spirit by the Holy Ghost. He empowers you to walk above sin in this world.
Go into today remembering that the Holy Spirit empowers you to be Holy. Seeking the kingdom of God also means seeking to be filled with the Spirit at all times.
Prayer: Ask the Lord to help you to be filled at all times (see Eph 5:18-20).
