The Ministry of the Holy Spirit


Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. John 16:7.KJV.


Here the Holy Spirit is called the Comforter. In such moments as sorrow, rejection, failure etc, we may turn inwardly to receive the power of the Holy Spirit cushioning the downcastness, and replacing it with the peace, joy, and the love of the Lord.

The Ministry of the Holy Spirit


The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all.

2 Cor 13:14.


The communion of the Holy Spirit may be translated as the fellowship of the Holy Spirit. In other words, we may have a continual fellowship with the Holy Spirit, hearing His words and knowing His continual guidance and help. This speaks of a personal relationship with the Holy Spirit that deepens with experience.

Sonship by the Holy Spirit


For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. Rom 8:14


We can trust in the power of self, or natural man, or we can continually seek guidance from the Holy Spirit. Those who trust God rather than self, and seek to by guided or led by the Spirit, are declared to be sons of God.

The Infilling and Outward Flow of the Holy Spirit


But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life. John 4:14


The Holy Spirit is eternal, and when He imparts His life to us He imparts a measure of eternal life to us to bring to nothing Satans power of death. The end result of His earthly ministry is that we are raised from death to the reality of eternal life.

The Infilling and Outward Flow of the Holy Spirit


He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water. John 7:38-39


This reading relates to the coming of the Holy Spirit. He who believes in Me is he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God, who has come not only to redeem us, but to abide in us and impart His life to us by the power of the Holy Spirit. As a person grows in this belief, the Holy Spirit will become a fountain of living waters rising up and flowing out of his heart in ministry to others.

We are Temples for the Holy Spirit


Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? 1 Cor 3:16-17


BRIEF COMMENTARY
Some people imagine that the Holy Spirit dwells in our hearts, but not our bodies. As this reading states, our whole being is a temple for the Holy Spirit, and His work in us and through us encompasses the use of our bodies, our souls, and our spirits. Such being the case, Paul charges us to maintain our whole beings in a state of holiness, or total commitment to the Lord.
