Is He here?
Acts 19:2 “There he found some disciples and asked them, “Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?” They answered, “No, we have not even heard that there is a Holy Spirit.”
Paul enters Ephesus and he stumbles across some Christ followers and the first thing he asked them was not about what they believed but what they have received.
He didn’t ask them about what was in their head but who was in their heart.
He didn’t ask them about the size of their church, what events were coming up, he didn’t ask them about the challenges they were facing. He didn’t ask whether they were changing Ephesus, he asked them whether the One was changing them.
Is He in you? Is He transforming, overwhelming and moving in you? Has the extraordinary invaded the ordinary? Has your strength been energised by His power? Is your life categorised by thinking, doing or have you learnt how to receive?
Today, He who is in you is not only greater than he that is in the world but also greater than what you do in the world. God in you. It is not what you know but who you know.
The answer cannot be ‘I do not know’. It is YES or NO.
Maybe approaching your day knowing that you have received God into your life, the fire of God, the life-changing, miraculous, guiding, resurrecting power of God is resident in your life, then maybe that is all you need to know.
