Today's topical discussion is focused on the role of the Holy Spirit in the life of believers and who He is.
First, the Holy Spirit is God in the third person as He was present during creation and is the "Spirit that was moving over the face of the deep" (Genesis 1:2). Second, the Holy Spirit is the one who indwells believers upon accepting Christ as Lord and Savior. Third, it is the Holy Spirit who seals believers with God's mark of ownership as believers have been bought with the precious blood of Jesus. This identifying mark provides evidence that believers are God's sons and daughters who have been adopted into His holy family. Fourth, the Holy Spirit makes real the presence of God in the lives of believers. Fifth, it is the Holy Spirit who guides believers around and through the troubles waters this life encounters. Sixth, it is the Holy Spirit who helps believers draw near to God through prayer. Seven, it is the Holy Spirit who gives believers ability to witness Christ with boldness and power. Eight, it is the Holy Spirit who motivates believers to maintain the unity of the Christian faith and come into the full likeness of Christ.
