When I read this it just made me think how incredible it was for Jesus to sacrifice for us to please the Father. Do we realize what we have when we accept Christ as our Lord and Savior? Are we faithfully serving Him and saying not my will be done but yours? It is important to pray and open God’s word so we can continually turn to God for understanding and be full of the wisdom it takes to follow Christ and be different. In 1 Samuel he tells Saul what will happen to him as he has been selected by God to be the first king.
1 Samuel chapter 10 verse 6 says, “At that time the Spirit of the Lord will come powerfully upon you, and you will prophesy with them. You will be changed into a different person.”
That should be all of our focus when we accept Christ; we should change into new people. If you notice it took the Spirit of the Lord to fill him. We need to ask, seek and knock for the Spirit to be strong and over power us so we can be the best devoted followers of Christ possible. We can never be satisfied with where we are at; we need to work hard to shine for people so they can see our actions as we honor God in all we do. Amen
