We all know that once we received the Holy Spirit, we become the church—and what God wants you to do is to release it. The presence that dwells inside us must be released in the open.
We can read in Luke 10:3-4 that Jesus sent out His disciples and commanded them not to bring anything nor greet anyone on their way. Why do you think Jesus commanded it to His disciples? Understanding the verse, this may mean Jesus wants His disciples (and us) to know the importance of His presence and that we don’t need anything as long as we have Him with us.
In verses 5-6, Jesus tells us to speak a blessing of peace and if our blessing is not welcome, it goes back to us. The kind of peace that the scripture says is not the worldly peace that is temporary but a peace that is permanent, which can be obtained through Faith in Jesus.
On verse 31 of Luke 12 says that seek His kingdom above all else and all these things will be given to you. Yes, it is important to think about our worldly needs (health, money, relationships) but once God takes it away from us we will know that it is Jesus we only need. For now, our priority is to seek His Kingdom because it is said that in due time all these things will be given to us.
