Sorry for not writing much these days as work has been pouring in. Well, still thankful, because I’m blessed either way, anyway or anyhow, whatsoever. Been impressed recently by the Holy Spirit these days that our blessings are not to wait until heaven; it starts now! It started the moment Jesus finished His work on the cross and rose on the third day!! Halelujah!! W00ohoo!

“In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”   John 16:33

Holy Spirit - A Corporate View, Atlanta Skyline

Hmm.. Much has been written about God the Father and Jesus our loving Christ Redeemer. Think would be a good time to write about the Holy Spirit. You see, God is a Trinity. We are rather familiar with the Father and the Son, Jesus Chirst; similiarly, the Holy Spirit is not a vague, ethereal shadow, nor an impersonal force. He is a person equal in every way with God the Father and God the Son. He is considered to be the third member of the Godhead. The part of God that lives in you.

Suppose if we put the Godhead relationship in a more humanly understandable corporate context; the Father would probably be the President Director; where the wisdom, direction, power and strategical planning and decision would happen. Jesus Christ, the Son would probably be the Executive Director; with power, might and grace to execute the will (or rather directive) of the President Director. Now, the Holy Spirit would probably the country Managing Director, or Ambassador or sorts. You will be that country’s General Manager as you discharge with your daily actitives, and the Holy Spirit is suppose to be your Managing Director.

God is the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit wouldn’t be complete without either one. And all the divine attributes ascribed to the Father and the Son are equally ascribed to the Holy Spirit. When a person becomes born again by believing and receiving Jesus Christ , God resides in that person through the Holy Spirit (1Cor. 3:16). The Holy Spirit has intellect (1Cor. 2:11), emotion (Rom. 15:30), and will (1Cor. 12:11). A primary role of the Holy Spirit is that He bears “witness” of Jesus Christ. He tells people’s hearts about the truth of Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit also acts as a teacher, He reveals God’s will and God’s truth to a belivers.

“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.”  John 14:26

But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.   John 16:13

Holy Spirit - A Corporate View, corporate shoot.The Holy Spirit serves many roles, one of which is to be the very real presence of God during a life crisis. The Bible calls Him a Helper, Advocate, and Comforter. Instead of leaving us to fend for ourselves, Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to live inside of each beliver to offer us encouragement, assistance, and comfort from the inside out!

The Holy Spirit can also produce God’s character in the life of a believer. We cannot do on our own, the Holy Spirit will build into our lives love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control (Gal. 5:22-23). Rather than trying to do it by our own strength, God asked us to rely on Him to produce these qualities in our lives and empowers us to serve.

The question is, “Are we willing?”

Best of all, there is not even a need for long distance calls; so have you been hearing your Managing Director?
