WHO IS THE HOLY SPIRIT?



The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Godhead and is equal in every way with God the Father and God the Son (Matt 28:19–20). He has intellect (1 Corinthians 2:10–13), will (1 Corinthians 12:11), emotions (Acts 9:31; Galatians 5:22–23), and very unique ministry roles that He fulfills in the life of both believers and non–believers.

One of His primary roles is to help people come to a true undestanding of who Jesus is (John 15:26; 1 Corinthians 12:3) and why they need to believe on Him as their only Savior from sin (John 14:6; 2 Corinthians 5:21).

He also serves as the believer’s teacher (John 14:26; 1 Corinthians 2:9–14), illuminates the minds of both believers and unbelievers so that they are able to recognize and receive truth (John 16:13), and brings conviction into the lives of those who in thought, word or deed are violating God’s holy character and⁄or commands (John 16:8–11).

The Holy Spirit empowers the believer to resist sin and temptation (Romans 8:13; Galatians 5:16–18), produces God–honoring fruit in the lives of those who yield themselves to His control (Galatians 5:22–25), and enables God’s children to use their spiritual gifts and natural abilities to build up the body of Christ and bring glory to God (1 Corinthians 12:4–7; Philippians 2:1–4).
