Zechariah 4:6 Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the Lord unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts.
We have talked about being lost and what that means. We have talked of God’s provision for sin. We have talked about faith and grace. If you yearn for the love of God and this relationship you have been missing, if you have that hunger, then eat the bread of life.
Obviously you cannot literally eat, but you can spiritually eat. Opening up your broken heart and asking Jesus to come in by His Spirit to fill the emptiness, that longing for relationship and committing to this covenant contract is done by God by His Spirit.
John 3:5-8 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
At this time I must introduce another word not yet used, trust. Up until the time of your choice in accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and asking Him into your heart, the Holy Spirit has been an external force. Like the wind you have a sense of His presence but it was external. The internal Spirit, becoming born again in the Spirit is a whole different matter and in the beginning you will just have to trust He is there until you become adjusted to this new life in Christ.
