Relationship with the Holy Spirit

 

Our lord Jesus said that it is to our advantage that He should go away, because if He doesn’t go away, the Comforter will not come. But if he departs, He will send the Comforter to us. Jesus went to the Father in order to send us the Holy Sprit who will be there with us in every situation of our life.

 

Comforter means Parakletos which is an amalgamation of two words. Para means very close and kletos means called. This means the Holy Sprit is the One who is called very close to us since He knows everything. In John 16:13, we read that – when the Comforter comes, the Spirit of truth, He will guide into all truth, because He will not speak on His own authority, but He will tell, all He has heard, He will tell of things to come.  

 

Relationship with the Holy Spirit

 

In Romans 8:5 we read that those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. Many of us desire to see the Holy Spirit move. We desire for His power to be released to bring deliverance, healing, signs and miracles. This is only possible when we allow the Holy Spirit to “use” us or in other words when we give Him the leadership of our lives. This is only possible when

 

  • We value His presence with us and value the relationship we have with Him, and do not let anything come between us.
  • We are ready to listen to the sound of His voice.
  • We have become attuned to Him as a Person. This means we are sensitive to His desires, and give importance in understanding what grieves and pleases Him.

 

Importance of relationship with the Holy Spirit

 

John 16:14 says, Holy Spirit has come to glorify Jesus Christ. The God the Father is in heaven and Jesus is seated at His right hand. Holy Spirit is the God on the earth. So it is absolutely important that we know the Holy Spirit. After all He is the One Jesus promised would “abide with you forever”!

 

The God has made us His dwelling place in the Person of the Holy Spirit. It is only by the Holy Spirit that we can step into the impossible things that God has planned and destined for us – both as an individual and as the body of Christ.
