Holy Spirit part 3

While this might be simple, it helps me to connect with the Holy Spirit by what He does – He relates, communicates (see the preceding 2 posts) & He demonstrates.  The Holy Spirit demonstrates in many different ways – in 1 Cor 12 you can read about the Gifts of the Holy Spirit (word of wisdom, word of knowledge, prophecy, speaking in tongues & interpretation of tongues – communication gifts;  discerning of spirits, faith, miracles & healing – power gifts). 

It is my sincere belief that the Holy Spirit wants to demonstrate Himself through us as believers in Jesus.  Not only do i believe that He wants to demonstrate His Gifts through us, but i also believe that He wants to demonstrate His character through us – as listed in the Fruits of the Spirit in Gal 5:22-23 (love, joy, peace, patience, gentleness, kindness, goodness, faithfulness). 

I think, however, that the key to His demonstration comes full circle back to our relationship with Him.  Perhaps the demonstration of the presence of the Holy Spirit is lacking in our lives, or maybe minimized, because we lack a vibrant relationship with Him.  Just something to consider 🙂
