Do you know who the most important person on earth is? I do and I would very much love to tell you who He is and how He works.
As a Christian living in the world of diverse religion, one of the most used words to describe a being in Christianity is the person of the Holy Spirit.
Whilst many hear His name, not many know who He is, why He is and what He is here for. We just know Him as a part of the Trinity or the Godhead as many would describe him. And nothing more. But He is more.
His person is hidden and wrapped around in deep mystery so much that He who is to be the most important friendship we would cultivate while on earth becomes He who keep at alarms length.
When Christ died, resurrected and was to ascend to Heaven, He made us a promise of the One who would play multiple roles in our earthly life: Comforter, Advocate, Teacher, Helper and the Spirit of Truth.
The last words of Jesus to His disciples was, “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth”, it was a promise which was fulfilled in Acts 2:4. And ever since, He became available to all who believed in the name of Jesus Christ, Son of God.
We are in the dispensation of the Holy Spirit and as believers with a “GO-INTO-THE-WORLD MANDATE” there is absolutely little or nothing we can do or achieve without the MOST IMPORTANT PERSON ON EARTH.
He can be likened to be the most popular person in the world who everyone wants as a friend.
BUT DO WE EVEN KNOW HIM?
DO WE EVEN KNOW THE EXTENT TO WHICH OUR CHRISTIAN WALK DEPEND ON HIM?
This bible truth of the person of Holy Spirit has been accepted by the then disciples of Bible times, but have we believers of today accepted His Person. OH YES, I SAID PERSON.
Do you believe the Holy Spirit is a Person?
