Defining the Holy Spirit
One of the unique aspects of Christianity is the way in which we believe the power and influence of God to work in our lives. That power and influence, better known as the Holy Spirit to some and the Holy Ghost to others, appears to be almost mystical. It is the power Jesus promised would be with us in his absence. It is described as being able to testify, intercede, encourage, teach and many other things. Just what is this Holy Spirit? Is it a power? Is it a person? How does it work? Through whom does it work? Can anyone have access to it? So many questions, so little time! Stay with us as we investigate the Holy Spirit and its biblical description.
