John 1: 32
New King James Version (NKJV)
32 And John bore witness, saying, “I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and He remained upon Him.
I am going to share a story that gave this scripture life application for me. while we were on a missions trip in Iceland were having dinner with our team and some of the church leaders. I saw a man who had a bird on his shoulder. No matter what he did the bird did not get spooked, the bird was completely comfortable and it remained on the man’s shoulder. That probably took some time before the bird trusted that it was safe place to be. Just as the man probably had to make sure that every move he made was with the bird in mind or it would fly away.
We need to look at our relationship with the Holy Spirit just as the man did with the bird, Every move we make should be with the desire to make sure that He remains.
