The Holy Spirit: A New Spirit

The Holy Spirit: A New Spirit

Then I will give them one heart,
and I will put a new spirit within them,
and take the stony heart out of their flesh,
and give them a heart of flesh.
Ezekiel 11:19

The Holy Spirit is the New Spirit that enters a person’s heart at salvation. He enters a hard heart and brings the love of God to soften it. When people realize how much the Father loves them and how much Jesus suffered for them on the cross, they’ll soften in repentance and faith. The New Spirit will give them a new view of their sins, a new view of the gospel and a new view of salvation. But most of all, the New Spirit will give them a new heart to call upon God. Let the Holy Spirit give you a new life. Let the Holy Spirit show you what new things He can do for you today.

Holy Spirit, I need a new perspective on life. Give me a new focus on my possibilities. Use me in a new way today.

The New Spirit is sent into your life to show you all the new things you get at salvation. You get peace (John 14:27), guidance (Galatians 5:25), assurance (Ephesians 4:30), illumination (1 Peter 1:12); and you are filled with the presence of the Holy Spirit for new service (Ephesians 5:18). When you get the fullness of the Holy Spirit, many new possibilities open up to you.

Holy Spirit, come touch me in a new way. I want all the new things You have for me. Make this a wonderful day. Amen.
