The Person and Work of the Holy Spirit (1)

  • The Bible clearly teaches that God is one in essence (being) but also three persons. (Matthew 28:19; II Cor. 13:14) The Christian worships God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
  • It is particularly the work of God the Father to define the will of God, it is the work of God the Son to carry out the will of the Father, and it is the work of God the Holy Spirit to apply the accomplishments of the Son and to bring the will of God the Father to completion. One of the clearest areas where we see this is in redemption.
  • One of the most encouraging facets of the Christian life is that of the work of the Holy Spirit. He indwells us so that we may know and experience the fullness of the provision of God. (I Corinthians 2:12)
