Pr: Proverbs 15:1-3

Today´s notable verses:

The Spirit of the LORD will come upon you in power, and you will prophesy with them; and you will be changed into a different person.

I Samuel 10:6 (NIV)

Is not the working of the Holy Spirit in our lives today the same? For those redeemed of Christ, we have with us and in us the Holy Spirit - in power. And can we not help but to be changed into a different person? I'm not so hung up on the part concerning Saul prophesying, for the Holy Spirit gives His gifts as He chooses. But I cling with all that I am to the promise that, by the power of the Holy Spirit, I am being continually changed into a different person: a person more and more conformed to the image of Christ.

A gentle answer turns away wrath,
but a harsh word stirs up anger.

Proverbs 15:1 (NIV)
