Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 119

119. Up to that time, the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified (John 7:39).

The day of the Spirit is yet ahead at this moment for the disciples. But when that day comes, they will receive power–the same power now available to us. Here, we can see that an amazing life is in store for those who receive the Holy Spirit. Their lives will demonstrate the fullness, the overflowing life that God has created us to enjoy. Theirs will be a life of extraordinary Presence, and the passage implies that they will have a life like Jesus himself, full of compassion, and truth, where people can find what they thirst for. As people of the Spirit, do we have that kind of life?
