For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. —1 John 5:7
How shall we think of the Holy Spirit? The Bible declares that He is God. Every quality belonging to Almighty God is freely attributed to Him. All that God is, the Spirit is declared to be.
The Spirit of God is one with and equal to God just as the spirit of a man is equal to and one with the man. This is so fully taught in the Scriptures that we may without loss to the argument omit the formality of proof texts. The most casual reader will have discovered it for himself….
What we have in the Christian doctrine of the Holy Spirit is Deity present among us. He is not God’s messenger only, He is God. He is God in contact with His creatures, doing in them and among them a saving and renewing work. POM066-067, 070
Yesterday I thought of my body as the temple of the Holy Spirit, and since He is God, that means God Himself is within me. Lord, if You’ll seal that truth in my heart, I’m sure my life will be transformed. Amen.
