Daily devotional: Gift of the Holy Spirit

Scripture
Peter replied, "Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off--for all whom the Lord our God will call.
Acts 2:38-39 NIV

Observation
When we turn our lives over to God through Jesus, we not only get an amazing gift of forgiveness for all our sins, but we also are given the most awesome deposit of the Holy Spirit who comes to live within us, to speak to us, guide us, convict us, and transform us to be more like our Savior and a sweet fragrance to God.

Application
Praise God for the Holy Spirit. Listen to Him, follow Him, and thank Him for transforming and ministering to me.

Prayer
Heavenly Father, thank you so much for forgiving my sins and for giving me the amazing deposit of the Holy Spirit, who guarantees my salvation, convicts me, calms me, gives me peace, and leads me into every good thing that You have for me. I love you!
