When you see a sign outside of a restaurant or a building that says, “all are welcome”, what does it mean? It means that no one is excluded, everyone can enter that place. That means that the owner is making whatever services they have, available to all.
Did you know that God did the same thing with the most important and valuable gift of all?
“And it shall come to pass afterward
That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh;” Joel 2:28
He promised to pour His Spirit upon all flesh. He did not say upon a building or statue or any “thing”. He said on all flesh. He wants to pour His Spirit into human beings. But to qualify to receive His Spirit, a person must be willing to obey and surrender all.
No one can receive the Spirit of God and still hold onto their own will. It’s an exchange… you give everything you have and are for His all in your life.
This week is the final week of the Fast of Daniel in the Universal Church all around the world. This Sunday is the Sunday of Pentecost and the Holy Spirit will be present to fill the lives of those who are thirsty for Him. Give your all this week and from now on and you shall be filled with Him.
May the God of the Bible Bless You
