January 16, Seeing Things as They Are

Share

And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him.

John 1:32

John the Baptist possessed…the right kind of vision, a true spiritual discernment. He could see things as they were.

The Holy Spirit came like a dove, descended like a dove, putting down His pink feet and disappearing into the heart of the Son of God.

I wonder out of all those crowds who saw the Holy Ghost come?

Only John the Baptist. I do not think anyone else had the kind of vision that was necessary to see Him….

John the Baptist was a man of vision in the midst of men who had no vision. He knew where he was in his times. The drift of the hour or the trend of the times in religion would never carry him away. CES132-133

To serve the present age,

My calling to fulfill

Oh, may it all my powers engage

To do my Master’s will. HCL358

Tozer on the Holy Spirit.
