There is need for every Christian to work and walk with the Holy Spirit, in their spiritual journey to the kingdom of God. The book of Genesis tells us that, Enoch worked with God, and he was not, for God took him to heaven. Mind you, before two people can walk or work together, they must have agreed, " Can two walk together except they agreed."(Amos 3 :3).
Who is Holy Spirit? What's His position in the Holy Trinity? And what are His roles in the life of Christians? These and many other questions are going to be answered in this write up.
The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Holy Trinity. Mind you, in Holy Trinity, there is God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. The three are different personalities, but they are one in unity and harmony. God the Father is the Almighty God, the Jehovah, God the Son is our Lord Jesus Christ, the Saviour and Messiah of the world and God the Holy Spirit is also known as the Holy Ghost. During the baptism of God the Son, (Jesus Christ) in River Jordan, the personalities manifested, Holy Spirit descended from upon Jesus Christ and God the Father spoke from heaven, " This is my beloved son on whom I Am well pleased."
What are the roles that Holy Spirit performs on the life of Christians? The following are some of the roles that Holy Spirit performs in the life of a Christian:
1 He comforts, teaches and reminds (John 14 : 26).
2. He Gives boldness, wisdom and utterances to Christian, so as to witness for Christ.
3. He Guides, instructs, rebukes, corrects and reproves. (John 16 :13; Acts 8:29,30; 16: 7-9).
4. Makes intercession for Christian (Romans 8 : 26,27).
5. Last but not the least, He seals christians unto redemption and quickens their mortal bodies at resurrection. ( Romans 8: 13,14; Ephesians 4: 30).
Christians, that is, those who had at one point or the others acknowledged, confessed, repented, forsaked their sinful life and had received the sanctification, which is the second work of grace and had been endured with Holy Spirit, can walk and work with Holy Spirit through the following ways;
1. Praying always (Acts 6:3,4; Jude 20; Colossians 4: 2 -4).
2. Reading or studying the word of God (2Timothy 2 : 15).
3. Disciplined life and steadfastness (2 Timothy 2 : 1,2; Romans 8 : 38,39; James 1 : 12).
4. Consecration (1 Corinthians 9 : 27; 15 : 31; Romans 12 : 1,2).
5. Fellowshipping with the children of God ( Hebrews 10:25; 1John 1:3; Acts 2 : 42).
Conclusion, Holy Spirit is very important in the life of every Christian, He guides Christians in both spiritual and temporal issues or matters.
May God Almighty help us to walk and work with Holy Spirit in our spiritual journey to the kingdom of God.
