Four Reasons Why We Need the Holy Spirit

  • Banner 1

When Jesus was about to go to the Father, He tells His disciples that He would not leave them alone.  He would send another of the same kind as He to be with them. It was the Holy Spirit. “Nevertheless, I am telling you the truth. It is for your benefit that I go away, because if I don’t go away the Counselor will not come to you. If I go, I will send Him to you.” (John 16:7 HCSB) Jesus saw it necessary for the Holy Spirit to come and live in believers, because the New Covenant has a new way of life:  human beings operating with the Holy Spirit within. Unfortunately, many believers live their lives ignoring the Spirit. Yet, it is not possible to live the life Jesus wants us to live without the help of the Spirit. Here are four reasons why we need the Holy Spirit.


1. The Holy Spirit empowers us to be witnesses of Jesus:

One of the reasons the Holy Spirit came is to give us power and boldness to be true witnesses of Jesus Christ. “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come on you, and you will be My witnesses …” (Acts 1:8 HCSB) Many people are afraid to speak about Jesus or believe they are unqualified. If you are saved, you have a testimony of how God saved you. You need the Holy Spirit to give you boldness. If you are speaking to someone who is sick, you need power to pray for them to be healed. If we ignore the Holy Spirit, then how can we possibly be good witnesses for Jesus?


2. The Holy Spirit makes us able to worship God:

As believers, we have the privilege of being able to enter into the presence of God through worship.  Sadly, many people get easily bored or are not interested in worshipping God. True worship is supernatural so it can only be accomplished with the help of the Holy Spirit. “But an hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth. Yes, the Father wants such people to worship Him.” (John 4:23) If you want to have true communion with God, feel His presence and be lost in worship, ask the Holy Spirit to help you worship.


3. The Holy Spirit gives us supernatural gifts:

The Christian life is supernatural. Every believer has been given a supernatural gift by the Holy Spirit. Think about it! The Holy Spirit has given you a spiritual, supernatural manifestation. “To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good. For to one is given through the Spirit the utterance of wisdom, and to another the utterance of knowledge according to the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit, to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another the ability to distinguish between spirits, to another various kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. All these are empowered by one and the same Spirit, who apportions to each one individually as he wills.” (1 Cor 12:7-11) Unfortunately, most Christians never use their gifts. Which gift do you have? If you don’t know, ask God to activate the gifts in you and to provide circumstances where your gifting will come out.


4. The Holy Spirit Anoints us to do our purpose:

One of the functions of the Holy Spirit is to anoint us for our purpose. The anointing is a supernatural empowerment to do the will of God. It can be a grace for business, for science, for ministry, for any area.  The anointing guarantees success. Jesus’ ministry was empowered by the anointing of the Spirit. Indeed, He was The anointed! “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me…” (Is 61:1, ESV) You are anointed by God just like Jesus was. Do you know what God has anointed you for? When you find your purpose, you will find your anointing.


It is time that we stop ignoring the Holy Spirit and ask Him to actively participate in our lives. Jesus sent Him because we need Him. Let us ask for forgiveness and pray that the Spirit of God lead us to all truth.
