“But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit,
whom the Father will send in my name,
will teach you all things
and will remind you of everything I have said to you.”
(John 14:26 NIV)
The Holy Spirit is a person, an awesome gift of God Himself to me. A recent study of the book by Francis Chan, Forgotten God, reminded me that I often do not treat the Holy Spirit as a person, but as an object. Jesus is God in human form, while the Holy Spirit is God in spirit form. He, like Jesus, emanates from the Father. Understanding the mystery of the Trinity includes understanding the Person of the Holy Spirit.
