Apostle Paul, in one of his missionary journeys, asked the believers in Ephesus if they had received the Holy Ghost since they believed (Acts 19:2). The answer would have shocked him, for they replied, “We have not so much heard whether there be any Holy Ghost.” If Paul was shocked, surely the Father and the Son were saddened because of the ignorance concerning the ministry of Holy Spirit.
As believers, we all need the Holy Spirit in our lives. It is therefore our responsibility to help others who do not have Him to receive Him. Who is the Holy Spirit? He is the third person of the God head whom the Father sent to indwell and guide believers. Many people claim to believe in the Holy Spirit, but actually they believe inGod theFather andGod the Sonwhile they regard theHoly Spirit asthe servant or errand boy.
This is not true because the Holy Spirit is equal and in no way inferior to God the Father and God the Son. The Holy Spirit is a living Person who must be addressed with the pronouns “He” and “Him” and not as “It”. The Bible uses personal pronounsin referring to the Holy Spirit. The word “He” was used inmanyplacesintheGospelof John(John16:13, 14 and18).
So, in your dealing and addressing the Holy Spirit, address Him as a living person and not an ordinary force. He is a person because He possesses characteristics of a person. He has will power (1 Cor. 12:11), knowledge (1 Cor. 2:10-12) love (Rom. 15:30). He can speak, can cry out, can intercede etc. The Holy Spirit is your divine Helper and Comforter (Jn. 16:7).
The Holy Spirit is the giver of the seven perfect spirits listed in Isaiah11:2. Ask Him and He will give you. These are spirits of wisdom, understanding, counsel, might, knowledge, the spirit of the Lord and the fear of the Lord. It is important to note that nobody can journey through life successfully and fulfill his destiny without the empowerment and help of the Holy Spirit.
You can receive the Holy Spirit by giving your life to Christ, forsaking sin and living a holy life, being obedient to God and His commandments always and by asking God to baptise you with His Spirit in prayer.
