The Holy Spirit

The Signal - - Faith -

Mis­con­cep­tions abound con­cern­ing The Holy Spirit. Un­like the Father and Son, who are vi­su­al­ized more eas­ily, thanks to the phys­i­cal at­tributes as­cribed to them by his­to­ri­ans and writ­ers, The Holy Spirit tends to be more dif­fi­cult for even the most ar­dent Chris­tians to un­der­stand. It’s easy to think of the Holy Spirit as a myth­i­cal force or some­thing com­pletely in­tan­gi­ble. How­ever, the Bi­ble states quite sim­ply that the Holy Spirit is a di­vine per­son with a mind and emo­tions. The Holy Spirit is a per­son just in the essence of God the Father and Je­sus Christ. John 15:26 says the Holy Spirit is the third per­son of the Trin­ity and is fully God. He is eter­nal, om­ni­scient and om­nipresent, has a will, and can speak. He is alive. The Holy Spirit is equal in all ways to God the Father and God the Son. When one prays, he or she also should speak to the Holy Spirit and ask for guid­ance. The Holy Spirit is in­stru­men­tal in telling peo­ple’s hearts about the truth of Je­sus and serves as a teacher and men­tor. The Holy Spirit pro­vides the spir­i­tual hug that many peo­ple de­sire and can keep fol­low­ers on the right path.
