THE HOLY SPIRIT


The Holy Spirit is the third person of our triune God. We have God the Father, God the Son, and the God of the Holy Spirit. They are three persons but one God. All of them are equal in nature. One of the illustrations of the triune is God is an egg. An egg has a white part, a yellow yolk, and a shell. Each piece is equal, and you cannot call an egg without one of the parts. Although there are three parts in an egg, we do not have three eggs, but one egg. It is the same manner in our triune God. The three persons of God always work together and never contradict each other. Jesus came to do the will of the Father (John 6:38). The Holy Spirit came to us to help us to do the will of the Father (Luke 3:22). When John the Baptist baptized Him in the Jordan river, the Triune God worked together. Luke 3:22 says this, "And the Holy Spirit descended on Him (Jesus) in bodily form like a dove. And a voice (from God the Father) came from heaven: "You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased.'"


John 14:26 says this about the Holy Spirit, "But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you." When Jesus ascended back to heaven, our God the Father did not leave us alone, but He sent the Holy Spirit to help us in our spiritual walk and our relationship with Him. Many people believe in lucky charms, so they keep their amulets with them. An amulet is an object supposed to give protection or luck to its possessor. Even professing Christians carry lucky charms or amulets, but we have the Holy Spirit that is more powerful than any lucky charms or amulets.


If we are true believers of our Lord Jesus Christ, we have the Holy Spirit in us forever. We do not rely on any lucky charms or amulets. We need to throw them away because we have the Holy Spirit. We have the helper, and He will guide us through this life. He will teach us all things and help us to remember everything that our Heavenly Father is teaching us, especially in the time of our needs.


Ask yourself these questions: Who is the Holy Spirit? What are some of the roles of the Holy Spirit in my life? What should I do to my lucky charms or amulets since I already have the Holy Spirit?


Write down all the worries that you are facing today and lift them up to God.


Prayer:

Father in Heaven, thank you for sending me the Holy Spirit as my helper. Please help me not to trust in anything else but the Holy Spirit. Forgive me if I have been trusting in lucky charms or amulets. You are the only one who can protect me because there is no other God out there that is more powerful than you. The Holy Spirit is enough for me. In the name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.
