The Holy Spirit is God

I mentioned this before, but I want to make sure you remember.  The Holy Spirit isn’t just some thing or someone that God sent to help us.  He IS God.  The reason why He can help us is because He is God.  The reason why He can comfort us is because He is God.  The reason why He is powerful in our lives is because…you got it…He is God.

God is invisible, yet He showed himself when Jesus came to live on the earth (Colossians 1:15).  When He went back up to heaven, we had no more way of seeing Him, but now He lives in us.  If you want to read a very interesting story about the Holy Spirit, look at Acts 1:6-11 and Acts 2:1-12.  The Holy Spirit did some amazing things in the lives of the disciples and He can do some amazing things in your life too!

Can you think of one thing that God is doing right now to help you, comfort you, or make you more like Him?

Do you have John 14:16 memorized yet?  Let’s say it one more time, “And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever”
