It is clear in the Scriptures, that the Holy Spirit is most certainly a Person. He is able to teach, comfort, console, lead, and convict. Without the power and presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives, we will be ineffective in all of our spiritual endeavors.
The Holy Spirit, being One with the Father, and the Son, empowers us to live victorious Christian lives. Apart from the Holy Spirit, we operate in our own strength, and are prone to frequent defeat. It is imperative that we are “filled with the Spirit.” How can we be filled; Jesus blazes the way, listen to His words . . .
“So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
“Which of you fathers, if your son asks for a fish, will give him a snake instead? Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!” Luke 11:9-13
