Luke 1:15 | “For he will be great in the sight of the Lord. He is never to take wine or other fermented drink, and he will be filled with the Holy Spirit even from birth.”
Angel Gabriel said the above to the priest, Zechariah, when he came to announce the birth of John the Baptist. It’s interesting to note that Angel Gabriel laid down rules that John the Baptist had to observe. And he followed it by saying that John the Baptist will be filled with the Holy Spirit from birth.
If you want to separate yourself from the crowd that merely honour God with their lips (Isaiah 29:13), then you have to pay attention to the rules the Holy Spirit asks you to keep. The Father is not sloppy or careless in His dealings with His children or His purposes, and neither should you.
Do you want to grow in your relationship with the Holy Spirit? Do you want to grow in godliness? Then pay attention to instructions from the Holy Spirit that sets you apart from the world around you. Bliss be with you.
