Holy Spirit – breath of God Ruah . This tells me that as a breathing is crucial part of my life so also Holy Spirit is meant to be so crucial too But What happens when we quit breathing?
We die because we cannot live and function without breathing
And similar we cannot really and truly function as a Christians without Holy Spirit
Without him breathing in me.
But unfortunately very often we attempt to and as a result we live without life in us
Without fulfillment joy peace kindness patience generosity positive attitude humility fidelity modesty self control chastity and love
Today is the day to once again cry out to God:
Cleanse me. Make me your vessel.
Take away from me everything that separates me from you
Take away from me everything that makes me close on you
Take away from me everything that leads me to sin
Make me a new
Crush the walls of unforgiveness lust jealousy hatred unbelief and renew me in your spirit o God
Question is: do I really want such drastic changes in my life?
Do I really want to live as a Saint.
Do I really want to be led by the Sprit and fallow him, go wherever he want me to go..
If not then at least I can pray:
God give me at least the desire to desire what you want me desire.
We heard in the Acts of Apostles that as they receive Holy Spirit they begin to talk in tongs and everyone around heard them speaking in their own language
Its not only about speaking in tongs, although it is beautiful gift given to praise God
But most of all when we receive Holy Spirit , when we live in the Spirit not in Body, when we deny desires of the Body and fallow Spirit which dwells in us
then God help us in tremendous way to speak in others languages
When we can communicate, we can understand each other, we come closer to each other we can love each other better
Through the Presence of The Spirit God takes us out from our isolation, loneliness, sadness, pain, and let us be closer with each other
What are the languages that everyone around us can understand when we talk?

Nothing really surprising but how difficult it is to speak in those languages we cannot make it on our own
Let us cry out to God to fill us with His Spirit and us ahe Enabled Apostles to preach his Gospel to all nations
as he gave them courage and love to die for him as he let the be understood by everyone around them
so may he fill us with His Spirit too.
May he make us able to speak in languages of those around us in language of
joy peace kindness patience generosity positive attitude humility fidelity modesty self control chastity and love!
