This week’s message focuses on the person and work of the Holy Spirit. The ‘Essentials Of Our Faith’ states:
The Holy Spirit has come to glorify Christ and to apply the saving work of Christ to our hearts. He convicts us of sin and draws us to the Savior, indwelling our hearts. He gives new life to us, empowers and imparts gifts to us for service. He instructs and guides us into all truth, and seals us for the day of redemption.
While the Father and the Son may be ‘easier’ for us to wrap our brains around, the Holy Spirit is by far the most mysterious member of the Trinity. We learn in this message, however, that the Spirit is essential to our understanding of God, our salvation, our experience of God’s presence, our ability to engage in good works and ministry, and our eternal life.
