Understanding: The Holy Spirit

241 Understanding: The Holy Spirit

He is the Godhead who works behind the scenes.  Yet He is powerful, dangerous, and necessary.  He is indeed the source Christians need to live a godly life and fulfill their purpose.  From beginning to end, He is throughout the Scripture.  He is so vital to the work of God that Jesus said these words:  “Nevertheless, I tell you the truth:  it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you.  But if I go, I will send him to you.”  (John 16:7; ESV)  Who is He?  Is He still at work today?  Is He only connected to certain denominations?  What is His purpose in our lives?  We need the Holy Spirit if we are to live godly lives.
