One vital work of the Holy Spirit in the life of a believer is to make him or her to be more like Christ and not just to give them miracles. Believers should not place the essence of their relationship with Christ on the premise of the miracles they desire but knowing Him deeper thereby bearing fruits as admonished in the scriptures. Pastor Bisoye Okwoli said this at the August 8 Thursday Showers service. “He is not in your life to have the power to make wealth alone but to make you become more like Christ and make your character be more like His,” she said.
Speaking from John 15:1, Galatians 5:22, and Luke 10:6, Pastor Bisoye noted that the Holy Spirit is a Seed that has been deposited inside of every believer and the more value they give Him to grow, the more He becomes evident in their lives that people would see and call them Christians. “The fruit of the Spirit is more important than anything. That’s the life God is calling us to; that is when it will be easy to flow with the gift of the Spirit. You become more like Christ by bearing fruits because by their fruits we shall know them,” she said.
Pastor Bisoye Okwoli, therefore, urged everyone to bear fruit daily as that would also make them overcomers over some battles. In her words, “You won’t have to fight some battles if you practice and exhibit the fruit of the Spirit. God has not forsaken you, He is just waiting for you to develop the character. If you have His heart, you will have His hand. He wants your life to reflect the Jesus that you claim.”
