Evaluate motives.

Acquiring the Holy Spirit through belief in Jesus helps us evaluate our actions and motives. Our inner spiritual part desires to please and know God. Seeking spirituality means fulfilling the desire to connect with the Lord, which only comes through faith in Jesus. Nothing else can fill the void.

Accepting the Holy Spirit into our lives allows God to search our hearts, which in turn helps us know ourselves and our shortcomings.

Imagine a computer infected with a bug, causing it not to function properly. Using a security scan to identify and debug the machine causes it to run as intended. In the same way, the Holy Spirit identifies the bugs in our hearts and helps us get rid of them, making us more like Christ and more equipped to do God’s work.

Let the Holy Spirit search your heart, identifying and helping you overcome the bugs. Becoming more aware of our shortcomings helps us live free from self-deception and indifference.

Lord, thank You for the gift of the Holy Spirit. Search our hearts and reveal the bugs. Help us become more like Christ as we cleanse our spirits, become more self-aware of our actions, and responding like Jesus instead. IJNIP. Amen
