The Voice Of Jesus Activation

Spirit School

Before you begin this exercise, it is recommended to read through the previous section on The Voice Of Jesus and Meditations On The Voice Of Jesus.

This is an exercise designed to open the eyes of our hearts to see how Jesus is spirit, and how he relates to us as spirit.

 

It may be useful to read through this activation before trying it, to become familiar with the steps and content.

 

Find a place where you feel relaxed and away from distractions, so that you can focus on connecting with God. This could be relaxing in an armchair, sofa or under a tree in a field, wherever is best for you to connect with God.

 

Take a deep breath and quieten your heart and mind before the Lord.

 

When ready say out loud the following with a pause between each sentence:


 

I welcome you Holy Spirit

 

I love you Holy Spirit

 

Holy Spirit, you are in me

 

I welcome you Holy Spirit

 

I love you Holy Spirit


 

Repeat this again and take note of changes in your mood and body:

 

 

I welcome you Jesus Christ

 

I love you Jesus Christ

 

Jesus Christ, you are in me

 

I welcome you Jesus Christ

 

I love you Jesus Christ


 

Allow yourself to sit in the peace of God for a few minutes.

 

Note how your mood shifted or changed when you used the words “Jesus Christ” in place of the words “Holy Spirit”. There is power in the name of Jesus and in using his name directly like this, we call our spirit to pay attention to the presence, spirit and voice of Jesus in a more acute way. The shift that happens in us is in direct response to a sensitivity to the spirit, or voice, of Jesus.

 

We relate to God in the same way when we use the name of Jesus Christ, as when we use the words “Holy Spirit”. Jesus Christ is the same as Holy Spirit but using his name quickens our spirit and opens our hearts to a different way of relating to God.
