When I was young there was a cartoon I used to watch. It was about a young ghost named Casper. There was a theme song for the show and part of the song went like this, “Casper the friendly ghost. The friendly ghost I know . . .” Most of us when we think of the word “ghost” we think of Halloween, wearing a white sheet with the eyes cut out, Patrick Swayze in the movie called Ghost or a horror film.
But in the Christian life there is a ghost we interact with that is not just friendly. He is so much more than that. He is with us . . . He is inside us (closer than Jesus could ever be in the flesh) . . . He is a revealer of truth . . . He is our advocate . . . He leads us into truth and to God . . . He ushers in the power of God to us . . . etc. It is the HOLY GHOST or otherwise known as the HOLY SPIRIT.
In recent days I have come across a song by Passion/David Crowder called Ghost. It says, “His ghost is inside me. Holy fire burning wildly. Burning through the things that need to be erased to liberate my soul.” And then it says, “Get ready, there’s an empty tomb. Get ready, there’s a ghost in the room. Get ready, even mountains move. Get ready, all the stories are true. Get ready, there’s an empty tomb. Get ready, there’s a ghost in the room. Get ready, even mountains move. Get ready, all the stories are true.”
Are you ready? If you are a Christian, guess what? There is a ghost in the room and He will do amazing things because He is God living inside you.
