Seize the Moment – Day 100

The Holy Spirit!

John 16


Good morning! This is Pastor Jerry Ingalls from New Castle First Baptist Church and today is Thursday, June 25.


Have you ever been confused by of all the different teachings about the Holy Spirit?


Let’s keep it simple and read what Jesus says about Him in John 16. Here are a couple snapshots to get you started:


Jesus teaches in verses 7-8, “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 go, I will send him to you. And when he comes, he will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment”


He continues in verses 13-14, “When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. He will glorify me, for he will take what is mine and declare it to you.”


Allow me to pray for you this morning:

  • May the Holy Spirit convict you of sin, righteousness, and judgment so that you may live a holy life to exalt the name of Jesus, to the glory of the Father.
  • May the Holy Spirit teach you and remind you of all that Jesus taught so that your life may bring glory to the name of Jesus, by which a person can be saved.
  • May the Holy Spirit bring glory to Jesus in your life through the visible evidence of the Fruit of the Spirit in your character (Galatians 5:22-23) and the equipping of your ministry through the gifts of the Holy Spirit (Romans 12:1-8; 1 Corinthians 12-14).
  • I pray all this for you, for the exaltation of Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit to the glory of the Father. Amen.


Seize the moment and walk in the Spirit today.
