The Holy Spirit is the third person in the Trinity. He is fully God. He is eternal, omniscient, omnipresent, has a will, and can speak. He is alive. He is not particularly visible in the Bible because His ministry is to bear witness of Jesus. There are many misconceptions about the identity of the Holy Spirit. Some view the Holy Spirit as a mystical force. Some represents Him with a dove, or see Him as fire or wind.
The Holy Spirit is a divine persona d He has a personality, a being with a mind, emotions, and a will. He is more than a wind or fire, even though He can manifest as such, but He is not. So, if the Holy Spirit is a person, then He can be worshiped, prayed to and can be communicated with. The Holy Spirit is God Himself, that which that proceeds from the Father.
The Holy Spirit thinks and knows. The Holy Spirit can be grieved. The Spirit intercedes for us. He makes decisions according to His will. The Holy Spirit is God, the third Person of the Trinity. As God, the Holy Spirit can truly function as the Comforter and Counselor that Jesus promised He would be. He teaches and brings to remembrance what He has taught.
2 CORINTHIANS 13:14… “The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost be with you all.” This scripture is commonly used most time to bring a believers’ meeting to a close. But the purpose of this scripture is more than just for benediction. It is a prayer and a reality we ought to function with always.
Paul prayed that the richness of the grace of Jesus and of the love of God and of the communion of the Holy Spirit be with every one of us. The word “communion” is speaking about a relationship with the Holy Spirit. The “grace” of the Lord Jesus Christ refers to all the benefits of redemption. Our spiritual life begins with the grace of Jesus Christ.
The “communion” of the Holy Ghost means that we come to know new power, new strength, new abilities, new insights, new emotions, and much more when we are filled with the Holy Spirit. We learn to walk in the Spirit, move in the power of the Spirit, knowing the voice of God, having the mind of Christ. It is here that genuine maturity begins. Take out time today to spend time with Him. He is real and He is in you now waiting for you to start communicating. Don’t delay!!! GRACE TO YOUR HEART!
