The Gift Of God’s Spirit

Joel 2:23-32

We continue reading from the prophet Joel. God is continuing to pour out His blessings upon those who have turned their hearts wholly to Him. He pours out His blessings so that God’s people will praise Him and “know that I am in Israel, that I am the Lord your God” (2:27).

All of this is just the beginning of what God plans for His people. The ultimate blessing of God is still to come. God’s ultimate plan is to pour out His Spirit on all people. Everyone, the young and the old, men and women, will be filled with God’s Spirit.

The vision that is set forth in these verses is one that we see being fulfilled in the New Testament. In the book of Acts we begin to see what God’s Spirit poured out on all people will look like as the church is birthed. His Spirit is what we are offered today. He wants to fill us with himself so that we can love and serve Him in amazing ways. Make that your prayer for today, and every day.

    Today’s offering begs for Bible Study and as I get ready for our weekly Tuesday Prayer meeting this morning I am reminded that as we pray that we also seek the Holy Spirit in doing our part to lead the unrepentant toward receiving the “Pouring Out “ of His spirit.
