Spirit Reign

Enter in the Holy Spirit.

The third member of the Holy Trinity.

God the Father.
God the Son.
God the Holy Spirit.

God sent His only Son to this earth, as a sacrifice for our sins. We all know the story. After His death, Jesus laid in the tomb of Joseph of Arimathea for three days. On the third day, He rose from the dead, breaking the chains of death, because He had never known sin. On the day that He ascended into heaven, He told His disciples that He was leaving, but that He was sending someone to be with us always; the Holy Spirit.
John 14:15-17 -- If you love me, obey my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, who will never leave you. He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth. The world cannot receive him, because it isn’t looking for him and doesn’t recognize him. But you know him, because he lives with you now and later will be in you.
John 14:26 -- But when the Father sends the Advocate as my representative—that is, the Holy Spirit—he will teach you everything and will remind you of everything I have told you.
We have never seen God. We live in the age after Christ walked the earth. But as it has been said many times throughout Scripture, we are never alone.

So who then, is with us? The answer is the Holy Spirit.

When we are comforted in times of hurt..when we feel joy while praising God..that is all the work of the Holy Spirit. Many times, the Holy Spirit is forgotten, yet He is one of the most important aspects of having a relationship with Christ, and therefore, a relationship with God.

When do you most feel the work of the Holy Spirit?
