Who is the Holy Spirit? Bible Verses

Who is the Holy Spirit?

When the Bible talks of the Holy Spirit it describes Him as a Person and not simply as the influence or impersonal power of God. The Holy Spirit is a divine Person of the Holy Trinity, a Person who can be tested, lied to, grieved, resisted, insulted and blasphemed. The Holy Spirit is God Himself, proceeding from God the Eternal Father and the eternal Son of God.

The Holy Spirit regenerates, teaches, witnesses to, guides, speaks, intercedes, searches, calls and directs people into doing the will of God. When we become believers, the Holy Spirit is sent into our hearts and God comforts, teaches and instructs each and every one of us.
As you read this excerpt from the Christian book Letters from Home, contemplate the wonderful promises and possibilities of living so close to God. Through the Holy Spirit living within us we can have a direct personal experience of, and relationship with, God.

How do I get the Holy Spirit? Bible Verses

How do I get the Holy Spirit?

The Holy Spirit is a Gift from God, freely given to all believers. He is not something that can be bought, earned or obtained by any other means.
So how can you receive the Holy Spirit?
When you believe in Jesus Christ and give your life to Him, invite the Holy Spirit into your hearts. Ask God to give you His Spirit to live in and act through you and He will give you the greatest Gift of all.
Just as parents here on earth love to give gifts to their children, so our heavenly Father has declared that He will give good gifts to all His children who ask (Matthew 7-11).
The Holy Spirit is given freely to all who believe and is a wonderful comfort and Teacher to all God’s obedient children.
In this excerpt from the Christian book Letters from Home, read how the Gift of God lives in you and gives you life, freedom and a sure guarantee that you truly belong to our Father in heaven.

Is the Holy Spirit in me? I am not worthy.

Is the Holy Spirit in me?

We may see the sin, bad habits and repeated failings in our lives and ask ourselves, “Is the Holy Spirit really in me?” When our thoughts and actions are so far from God’s perfect will, we may even doubt the presence of God in our lives and think that we are not worthy of God’s love.

Actually, the Bible says that God values you enough to actually die for you, to save you from ruining your life throughout eternity. God loves us so much that we have become His children, children of the King, and co-heirs with His only begotten Son. God loves us so much that He is continually present in our life through the Holy Spiritand He will never leave us.

As you read this excerpt from the Christian book Letters from Home, be encouraged by how our Father feels about you and what it means to be filled with the Holy Spirit, in His own words.

Grieving the Holy Spirit: when do I make You angry, God? Bible Verses

Grieving the Holy Spirit

God is with us at all times by the presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives. As the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God, the Third Person of the Trinity, to live in accordance with the Holy Spirit is to please God and to insult or grieve the Holy Spirit, as the Bible says we are capable of doing, is to grieve Almighty God Himself.

We must be very careful, because if we continually refuse to listen to the Spirit and instead choose to offend God, even though He is patient, He will eventually stop speaking to us. We must therefore make every effort to become more acquainted with the sound of God’s voice. If we do this, then we will truly be following in the footsteps of Jesus and on the right path in life.

As you read this excerpt from the Christian book Letters from Home, consider the times when you have been grieving the Holy Spirit and make a resolution to avoid doing it again.

What does it mean to live a Spirit-filled life? Bible Verses

Life in the Spirit

When you became a Christian the Holy Spirit came into your life and filled you. This is a basic truth because the Bible says that if we do not have the Spirit, then we do not belong to Christ.

It is the Spirit of Christ that seals our redemption and gives us the guarantee that we belong to Him. However, we can also have special and separate ‘fillings’ of the Holy Spirit in order to accomplish special tasks and live in a powerful way.

By being continually filled with the Holy Spirit we can live a life under the control of the Spirit, which empowers us to live as Christ has directed us.

As you read this excerpt from the Christian book Letters from Home, be encouraged by the power available to live a godly and Spirit-filled life.

How can I produce the fruit of the Spirit? Bible Verses

What are the gifts of the Spirit? Bible Verses

Gifts of the Spirit

The gifts of the Spirit are given by God for us to use in our service towards our brothers and sisters and greater mankind.

The Bible tells us that all the children of God make up the Body of Christ on earth. This is an important concept to understand because it is through us that God wants to work to achieve His goals.

Everyone is unique in their abilities and what they are able to do well. As you read this excerpt from Letters from Home ask God for these good gifts and ask yourself what you are already good at doing and what you are able to do for God to build up His church.
