What I learned about the Holy Spirit in bible study last night. Before last night I really hadn’t given the Holy Spirit much thought. I think about God and all he has done for me. I think about Jesus and what he taught us, but when it comes to the Holy Spirit what do we really know?
Last night we went over Ephesians 3:14-19. The main point we were studying is Gid is present with his people with the Holy Spirit. I think we think that God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit are three different people but really they are all God and also individuals.
In Ephesians Paul was writing to the church in Ephesus, explaining how God’s plan has been t bring glory to Himself by
1.) saving people by grace through faith
2.) by incorporating all kinds of people, Jew and Gentile alike, into one body
From what I understood the Holy Spirit guides us in the world, letting us know right from wrong, but also shows us how much God loves us. The Holy Spirit is the one that comforts us when we need to be comforted but also fills us with so much of God’s love that it overflows where we show others love.
