The Senior Pastor of The Fountain of Life Church, TFOLC, Pastor Taiwo Odukoya, has charged believers to develop a solid relationship with the Holy Spirit and walk in their true identity in Him.
Speaking while admonishing the worshippers at the January 26 Thursday Showers, the cleric, who insisted that any believer who desires to have a personal relationship with God has to use the Word of God, declared that all victories over the devil and his activities could be won through the Word.
He says, “The word of God and the spirit of God in a Christian produces miracles; living by the word of God allows a believer to overcome the spirit of fear.”
Addressing the congregation from John 1:1-5, Romans 8:15, and 2 Timothy 1:7, Pastor Taiwo revealed that any believer who does not have the Holy Spirit does not belong to the family of God, adding that a Christian ought to always access himself or herself in the light of the Holy Spirit and the Word of God.
In his words, “Christians are called to love people because they are to always access themselves in the light of the Holy Spirit and the word of God.”
The Senior Pastor also cited Ephesians 1:3 and Galatians 2:20 to note that believers are blessed individuals and are expected to live in that reality.
This reality, he said, would make such a believer live a life of faith just like the patriarchs of faith listed in Hebrews 11, who lived a life of faith.
“Their life of faith should be an example for believers to know it is possible to live a life of faith,” he noted.
The clergyman, therefore, admonished believers to always shine their light and fight the good fight of faith as admonished in Matthew 5:14-16 and Isaiah 60:1.
“The work of the Holy Spirit is to empower you to become a witness of the light. This will be achieved when there is a space in your life for the Holy Spirit,” he urged.
