I Believe in the Holy Ghost

“I will ask the Father, and he will give you another [of like kind] Counselor to be with you forever— the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. I will not leave you as orphans.” (John 14:16–18, NIV 1984). 

My Musings –  I believe in the Holy Ghost.  (The Apostles’ Creed).  The Lord, and Giver of Live, who proceedeth from the Father and the Son; who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified.  (The Nicene Creed).

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life.” (John 14:6, NIV 1984). 

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.  (Genesis 1:1–2, NIV 1984). 

You, however, are controlled not by the sinful nature but by the Spirit, if the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Christ.  (Romans 8:9, NIV 1984). 

To God’s elect, strangers in the world, who have been chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through the sanctifying work of the Spirit, for obedience to Jesus Christ and sprinkling by his blood. (1 Peter 1:1–2, NIV 1984). 

My Advice“The Spirit of truth” of the same kind as Jesus (“I am the truth”).  Identified as both the “Spirit or God” and “Spirit of Christ.”  God in three Persons, blessed Trinity.  “Obedience to [acceptance of] Jesus Christ [by the] sprinkling [of] His blood [His death and resurrection].”  Become “God’s elect.”  “Chosen according to [His] foreknowledge.”  So you can be sanctified (set apart, made holy) through the “work of the Spirit” who will “live in you.”  You’ll never get a better offer.  There’ll never be a better time.

I was raised in a Christian family and my earliest childhood memories include regular Sunday school and Church attendance as a family. I was taught that our Judeo-Christian values were not just a part of our Sunday routine they should be part of our character and influence all aspects of our lives. I was also taught that as important as these values were they could not save us. We must also be “born again” by accepting Christ.
