"...the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us richly..." - Titus 3:5-6
Imagine that: poured out richly.

Not just lightly sprayed like mist from an ocean breeze. Not just sprinkled like droplets of rain. But poured out richly like a swimming pool dumped on your head.

That is how the Holy Spirit is given to us.

I Ask Myself

"...so we speak, not to please man, but to please God..." - 1 Thessalonians 2:5
When I speak, do I care about pleasing God more than I care about pleasing man?

Certain Hope

"...let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe..." - Hebrews 12:28
Heaven is our home. For this eternal salvation and life with Him, we should continually thank and praise God.

We have a certain hope. This future security should fill us with reverence and awe of the One who promises this for us.
