Therefore, brothers and sisters, we have the confidence
to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus.
Some verses later it reads in Hebrews 10:26: If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left, but only a fearful expectation of judgement and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God.
This true warning words may scare many people. Did I hurt the Holy Spirit, even on purpose? Am I lost forever?
That is nothing else than self-condemnation! In reality you fight with yourself. The Holy Spirit is still alive in you. You are definetely not forlorn.
However, there are people who seem to be touched by the Holy Spirit, they seem to have experienced healing, are in the frontline with praising and yet: their heart is locked. God may have blessed them with many gifts but they have not invited God to be their King and Lord. They still refuse to belong to Him, want to remain their own master and decide for themselves. They are not prepared to sacrifice their ego. They wish to receive the blessing but not be dependant on Jesus. They want His hand not His face!
Inspite of the many gifts received they are restistant to God`s requirements. They go a little bit with God and then walk again their own way. They are limping on 2 legs!
Are you such a person? I do not think so, as you then would not read this devotion, you would not pray. you would not love God, ask for His will, would not have such a longing for Him, would not circle only around yourself.
No, you are not such a person! God`s Spirit cares for you, strengthens your faith, your love. Yes, speak it out loudly: Lord, I love You, Father in Heaven I want You!
Lord, I am not perfect at all. But You love me and by Your grace I love You too. Thank You for being at my side!
