On Sunday, we looked at Isaiah 11:2-3
[“The Spirit of the Lord will rest on Him,
The spirit of wisdom and understanding,
The spirit of counsel and strength,
The spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord.
And He will delight in the fear of the Lord,
And He will not judge by what His eyes see,
Nor make a decision by what His ears hear;”]
With this in mind, we asked…
Who is the Holy Spirit to you?
Josiah Jordan, ’18: The Holy Spirit is One who brings both conviction and counsel: He exposes our sins before the Father but also leads us to repentance and equips us with everything we need to fight the good fight of faith.
Justin Sohn, ’16: The One who dwells within the hearts of the faithful, The One who journeys with us in this world, the Spirit of Love, the Great Uniter, the True Sanctifier, the Power of His Church on earth. Whoever lets the Spirit dwell deeper within him, the more united he is with Christ and the closer he is to the Father. He understands more and more that the Kingdom of God is within him, and that Kingdom of God is unfolding now. He attains what the Scriptures call “the peace that surpasses all understanding.”
Nick Chuan, ’18: The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity, the Helper that is the manifestation of the Father’s love for the Son and the Son for the Father. He indwells in us, teaches us all things and brings Christ’s words to remembrance (John 14:26)
Olugbenga Joseph, ’16: For me, the Holy Spirit is the agent that empowers me to serve as one of God’s ambassadors on Earth (Act 1:8)
Brandon Chia, ’19: The Holy Spirit is God; part of the trinity who walks with us as our Helper, Advocate, Counselor, and Teacher (John 14:26).
