In the beginning of time, the Bible says, “The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters (Genesis 1:2). At the end of time we know that the Spirit and the bride say “Come” to hasten the second coming (Revelation 22:17).
In the middle of these bookends… God’s Word, which is inspired by the Holy Spirit (II Timothy 3:16-17, II Peter 1:20-21), tells us much about His work. For instance, Jesus constantly reminded His disciples that after His ascension the Holy Spirit would be poured out on His disciples (Acts 1-2).
In John 16:13-15 Jesus said, "But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on His own; He will speak only what He hears, and He will tell you what is yet to come. He will bring glory to me by taking from what is mine and making it known to you. All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will take from what is mine and make it known to you."
The Holy Spirit confirms that not only God sent Jesus to the earth but that Jesus' words of truth are from the Father. What an amazing illustration of unity! The Godhead works as ONE! Wouldn't it be nice if God's people did the same?
He shows us the way and reveals the path to eternal life (Romans 1:2, II Timothy 3:15-17, II Peter 1:20-21). Then, after baptism into Christ, He lives inside of us as a seal of our salvation (Acts 2:38-39, John 3:3, 5, Romans 8:16, Ephesians 1:13-14, 4:30). And, as if that isn't enough... He helps us bear fruit (John 15:1-8, Galatians 5:22-23). How awesome is that?
Don’t you love the Holy Spirit of God? He is awesome! But please remember that "He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world" (I John 4:4). You can be an awesome overcomer today! Because you are the temple of the Holy Spirit (I Corinthians 6:19-20). Have a blessed day!!!
