Stepping Stone #11
How To Become God's Property
Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from Him cometh my salvation.
I trust you're taking one step each day which is vital to your
success. Your patience in waiting does not go unnoticed by your
I join you again today with much enthusiasm, because this Stepping
Stone is really something to be excited about.
Today we are going to talk about the Holy Spirit. You noticed that
the title of this step is Christian Surrender to the Lord and Savior, and you might be thinking that
all we are talking about is surrendering your problem.
But, that is not all.
To become God's Property fully, we are also talking about surrendering your time to the Holy
Spirit ... The Comforter that Jesus left us to help us with all
of our problems. What does it mean to be filled with the Holy Spirit?
It means to voluntarily surrender your life to the control of the
Holy Spirit who lives within you.
1 Corinthians 6:19
What? know ye not that your body is the Temple of the Holy Ghost
which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
He is the provider of the Truth that we have been talking about in this God's Property Path and in Truth.
He is the Spirit of Truth:
16 And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you
another Comforter, that He may abide with you for ever;
17 Even the Spirit of Truth; whom the world cannot
receive, because it seeth Him not, neither knoweth Him: but ye know
Him; for He dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send
in my name, He shall teach you all things, and bring all things to
your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the
Father, even the Spirit of Truth, which proceedeth from the
Father, He shall testify of me:
7 Nevertheless I tell you the Truth; It is expedient for
you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come
unto you; but if I depart, I will send Him unto you.
8 And when He is come, He will reprove the world of sin,
and of righteousness, and of judgment:
13 Howbeit when He, the Spirit of Truth, is come,
He will guide you into all truth: for He shall not speak of Himself;
but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak: and He will shew
you things to come.
14 He shall glorify me: for He shall receive of mine, and
shall shew it unto you.
15 All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore
said I, that He shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.
We need the reality of God to actually be in our lives. The
Holy Spirit is real. He was sent to be with you forever. A sign that you are God's Property.
Christian Surrender to the Lord and Savior is Essential
The Holy Spirit is a real entity, not some cool ideology or peaceful
bed time story. He can speak and has a rather unique personality. He
wants to be your friend.
He is God's Spirit ...
Never forget Jesus or God, but you cannot be in touch with them
without the Holy Spirit.
God is a Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him
in spirit and in Truth.
Seek the voice of the
Holy Spirit in your soul. He will speak to you if you listen:
Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear His
And He will even tell you exactly what to do and say when confronted
For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what ye ought to
Being God's Property, the Holy Spirit talks with our own spirit and reveals to God what is
in or heart.
26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for
we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit
itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be
27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the
mind of the Spirit, because He maketh intercession for the Saints
according to the will of God.
The spirit of man is a divine light, a candle of the Lord's lighting.
The spirit of man is the candle of the LORD, searching all the inward
parts of the belly.
That part is so cool. Being God's Property, the Holy Spirit knows your deepest and darkest secrets.

But it is a two way street on God's Property Boulevard.

child they never want to leave. He wants to stay close to those that
love Him. When you leave, He leaves.
