Who Takes the Spotlight?
But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, He shall testify of Me. John 15:26
Some people get caught up in what they believe are the actions of the Holy Spirit. They turn their focus to miracles, healings, signs, and more. Friend, beware of those who make the Holy Spirit the figurehead of their faith, because this does not best describe the work and ministry of the Holy Spirit.
In John 15:26, Jesus says that when the Holy Spirit comes, He will “testify of Me.” The Holy Spirit has one cause: to testify of Jesus Christ. He is single-minded. He’s not interested in doing ten things for God – just one. This is the cause of the Spirit: “He will not speak of Himself, but He will glorify Me.”
The mark of a person who’s filled with the Holy Spirit is not that they’re always talking about the fact that they’re filled with the Spirit, but that they’re always glorifying the Lord Jesus Christ.
I challenge you to make this pledge to God: I will bring my talents, my business, my time, and my resources – all for the cause of Christ. This one thing I do – sink or swim, live or die – Jesus will be glorified in my life today and every day!
