Holy Spirit Person 10

Spirit Leaks Things

MistThe Holy Spirit is a person amongst us just as Jesus and the Father are. There is equality in the Godhead and all three members of the Trinity are persons. Just as something flashes in the corner of our eye and we automatically glance over thinking someone is there, so the Holy Spirit person flashes in our lives. We sense his presence.

Makes Jesus Contemporary

Archbishop Donald Coggan, c1974Lord Donald Coggan (1909-2000) the late Archbishop of Canterbury, who incidently commissioned me as an evangelist in the Church of England in 1975, wrote in his book, "The Christian Faith," "The Holy Spirit has a way of annihilating the barriers of time and distance and making Jesus our great contemporary." Jesus himself instructed his disciples in John 14.26, "But the Advocate, 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." The person of the Holy Spirit also teaches us the mind of God as our contemporary or as Saint Paul puts it, "The Holy Spirit leaks things from the mind of God." In the same vein, we read in 1 Corinthians 2.11, "For who knows a person’s thoughts except their own spirit within them? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God."
