The Gift of the Holy Spirit

There are many misconceptions about who or what is the Holy Spirit. Some believe the Holy Spirit is as a wind moving in our lives with very little control or knowledge on our end as to its movements. Others envision the Holy Spirit as a mystical or magical force that can only be summoned on special occasions or by certain people who possess such abilities to communicate with spiritual forces. Still others say the Holy Spirit is not an actual real being, rather the Spirit is instead a “good feeling” or an “idea” from which we can receive positive vibes.  

None of these thoughts are true; none whatsoever! And to the contrary, such teachings are simply false doctrine. The Holy Spirit is a divine person. The Holy Spirit is God Himself; a Spirit who is available, ready, accessible, and intricately and intimately involved in the life of a Christ-follower.
