How Does The Holy Spirit Do What He Does?
Trying to figure out God is beyond man’s ability. However, God invites us into His presence that we might acquaint ourselves with Him – Exodus 25:8. Therefore, as we attempt to shed some light upon how the Holy Spirit operates, it will be feeble at best. I shall share three items, with you.
One thing the Scriptures tell us about how He operates is this, the Holy Spirit impresses the heart with truth – “When He the Spirit is come, He shall guide you into all truth… “John 16:13
Next, the Spirit imparts the fruits of righteousness. “For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth…” Ephesians 5:9.
But what is the fruit of the Spirit? “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance…” Galatians 5:22-23
Lastly, the Holy Spirit seals your salvation. In other words, in order for you to be saved into God’s kingdom, you must be sealed and the Holy Spirit is the only entity that can do that. “…In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that Holy Spirit of promise, - Ephesians 1:13
