The Holy Spirit and You

    The Holy Spirit is a gift of God to you, not just some long-dead prophets, or some far-off saints.

    When you feel that you are not up to the task of living the faith, God will give you what you need, if you but ask and allow him to guide you. What you need is the Spirit, who will fill you from within, to make you strong and bring you home.

    When you feel empty, ask for the Holy Spirit, and he will fill you.

    When you lose sight of truth, ask for the Holy Spirit, and he will guide you.

    When you are weak and afraid, ask for the Holy Spirit, and he will give you power.

    It is commonly said that God is too distant, too other-worldly for us to be near him. He has shown us that this is not the case. He loves you so, and desires you so, that he fills you from the inside and gives you true life.

    This is the last section to describe an aspect of the nature of the Holy Spirit. At this point, we have discovered that there are three divine persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Spirit. Why then, do Christians call themselves monotheists, that is, believers in only one God? This requires us to understand The Trinity.
