The Holy Spirit is a mysterious and often a confusing aspect of Christianity’s narrative. Who He is and what does He do? As part of the Trinity, He shares in the divine union between God, the Father and the Son. His activity is seen in Christians as they attempt to walk according to the Spirit. He lives in us and works through us.
One of my favorite verses that describe the outworking of the Spirit is Acts 4:13.
When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus. (Acts 4:13 NIV)
What did the Spirit enable Peter and John to be and to do? Be courageous and appear smarter than they actually were:). I love this. I need this. I need Him to help me be courageous and to speak boldly and intelligently about Him.
