What Jesus promises you in the Bible and
When you receive Jesus into your life He
gives you the gift of the Holy Spirit. Now the Holy Spirit has two main
He assures you that you are a ChristianHe brings the quiet, yet certain conviction that you are a child of God. You seem to know and feel deep down that you are right with God. Jesus Christ has become a living person for you. The old barrier between you and God is no longer there.
He helps you grow like JesusHe changes your nature from being self-centred to being Christ-centred. He gives you the power to become gradually more like Jesus Himself. This is the work or 'fruit' of the Holy Spirit - to produce in the Christian a nature of love, joy, peace patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.
In your own strength you cannot produce
this fruit in your life, however hard you try. The Holy Spirit's special
work is to give you the inner power to produce this fruit.
