The Holy Spirit is a being. Oftentimes, many of us picture the Holy Spirit as a passive force, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. In the book of John, Jesus reveals many truths regarding the nature of the Holy Spirit and how He helps us as believers. Through Christ’s sacrifice on the cross, we have access to the Holy Spirit and all that He helps us with.
In the book Ephesians, we are called to be imitators of Christ. We are called to walk, live in, and operate in love just as Christ taught us. No matter people’s opinions towards us, we are called to love them. In a world that is filled with division and hate, we are called to be imitators of the selfless love of God.
Fear. A complex word, fear can entail many things – fear of death, fear of failure, fear of rejection, fear of opposition, and countless more. While these fears are each unique in their manifestations, they are common in one way: their origins. All fear originates from the same place: from within us. But it doesn’t just come about by itself – fears arise in accordance with the media, literature, and entertainment we choose to consume.
What do we do when the adversity life brings our way is overwhelming? Where do we turn when we are flooded with fear, uncertainty, and anxiety? Our answer was provided to us by God through Jesus Christ’s sacrifice. Our answer is the 3rd head of the Trinity – The Holy Spirit.
