Now may the grace of God, the love of Jesus, and the sweet communion of the Holy Spirit, rest, rule, and abide now, henceforth and forevermore. Amen.
Most of the time, this statement is made during the benediction at church. This statement is pretty accurate when it comes to biblical truth regarding the Holy Spirit. We, the believers, should desire the Holy Spirit to rest, rule, and abide within us. God, through Jesus, has made the Holy Spirit available to reside within us to guide us everyday of our life. When we acknowledge the Holy Spirit’s presence and heed to His commands we will experience God’s best in life.
Rest- Receive the Holy Spirit. Allow the Holy Spirit to rest within us. Don’t fight or debate with the Holy Spirit’s promptings. Make the Holy Spirit feel welcome in your temple.
Rule- The Holy Spirit is in control. God is smarter than us and He knows the end from the beginning. Be at peace with the fact that the Holy Spirit is in control.
Abide- Allow the Holy Spirit to make His home in us by acknowledging Him in all our decisions. It’s up to us to be filled with the Holy Spirit.
1 Thessalonians 4:7 For God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life. 8 Therefore, he who rejects this instruction does not reject man but God, who gives you his Holy Spirit.
