The Holy Spirit: Our HR Coordinator

          A great job usually comes with a benefit package. Besides medical, dental, and vision care, you may be offered profit sharing whereby you end up owning some of the company stock. Little day-to-day advantages are yours as well. Maybe you are given a set of keys, the security code, and a special parking space. Other perks could be some clothing with the company emblem, an expense account, a company car, and personal technology like a business cell phone or other computer device. Whatever you receive, the HR (Human Resources) coordinator is probably your point man or woman who apprises you of all the advantages you have now that you are a new employee.

          Well, consider the Spirit of God to be your HR coordinator. As believers, we have a benefit package. The manual is 66 books long and the perks are written throughout. God (the CEO) has assigned the Spirit to help us interpret the manual. First Corinthians2:12states, “Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God” (NKJ).

           Once we’ve been “employed” by the company of Heaven, every benefit is available for our use and enjoyment. All we need to do is consult the manual and the Holy Spirit for full understanding. Then, for example, we can park in our space (operate in our talent), wear our shirts with the company logo (witness and let others know for whom we work), and use our company e-mail (talk to God in prayer).

           God has given us the Spirit whose job it is to help us fully understand all that has been freely given to us. Rely on the Spirit for that information and then start enjoying the wonderful benefit package Christianity offers.
