The apostle Paul, when inquiring of those early believers in Ephesus about their knowledge of the Holy Spirit, was met with this reply: “We have not so much as heard whether there is a Holy Spirit” (Acts 19:2). Sadly, the same response could be heard from many believers today. The emphasis on who the Spirit is—and what He does—is lacking in much of the modern church. So, in these next few pages, let us set out to meet the Holy Spirit.
In short, the Holy Spirit is God Himself. An invisible yet inseparable person of the Trinity: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Too often, He is the forgotten member of the Godhead. Much is made of the Father and the Son and not enough of the Spirit. The Holy Spirit is God coming to indwell us, never to leave us, and to empower us for Christian service. It is the Spirit who convicts us of our sin, draws us to Christ, seals our faith, and gives us power to live the Christian life.
If you have believed on Jesus Christ, then the Holy Spirit has come to take up residency in your life. He is alive in you right now!
There is no place like home. And “home” for the Holy Spirit is in your heart. Today, when you come home and get comfortable, remember that your heart is where the Spirit of God lives and makes His home.
To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.
