Through the Spirit




Since you have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit in sincere love of the brethren, love one another fervently with a pure heart.
— 1 Peter 1:22, NKJV 



We talk of the Holy Ghost; we preach of the Holy Ghost; but we need to understand better what the office of the Holy Ghost is. We need to understand that we must co-operate with God in every sense or God can not co-operate with us. “We are laborers together with God.” 
The word of God is to be our guide. Have you given heed to the Word?...  If you live in obedience to Christ and his word, you are eating the leaves of the tree of life, which are for the healing of the nations.  
The time has come when this people are to be born again. Those that have never been born again, and those that have forgotten that they were purged from their old sins, and can not see afar off, and have practiced their old habits... God wants you to be converted, and may he help, that this work may go forward. He is a power for his people. 
Let every one of you go home, not to chat, chat, chat, but to pray. Go home and pray. Talk with God. Go home and plead with God to mold and fashion you after the divine similitude. 
If we will take hold of the Master, take hold of all the power he has given us, the salvation of God will be revealed. Let me tell you that the sick will be healed when you have faith to come to God in the right way. 
Every believer in the truth has a relation to another soul...and through these lines of influence we may extend the blessings of God’s grace. Thus we may diffuse heaven’s atmosphere in place of the malarious atmosphere which has surrounded so many souls. 
Be at peace among yourselves. When you do that, you are educating character. You are forming characters for the future, immortal life. I want to have a home with the blessed, and I want you to have a home there. 
God help us to submit to Jesus Christ, and to have his power right here and now. 
— The General Conference Bulletin, April 3, 1901 



Plead with God to mold and fashion you after the divine likeness. 
Take hold of the Master, take hold of all the power He gives. 
Extend the blessing of God's grace to others and diffuse heaven’s atmosphere. 
May God help us submit to Jesus Christ and have His power right here and now. 




Therefore comfort one another and edify one another, even as you already do.  —1 Thessalonians 5:11.
