What Does the Holy Spirit Do for the Church?
The first thing to realize is that the Holy Spirit is a person; a person who is here for the church of Jesus Christ. He has many areas that He helps the church in. The first thing we will discuss is that the Holy Spirit is a teacher. That’s right, He is our teacher (John 14:26) if you are a minister don’t try to study without the help of God’s Spirit because you will be wasting your time. Think about it; there are churches on every street corner in America but sadly there are a lot of dead churches that operate with no power. Why? The difference between a minister that depends on the Holy Spirit for his services and the minister who depends on his college education is changed lives.
You can have all the college that this world can offer and all the knowledge that you can obtain and still never touch a life. Only the power of the Holy Spirit can change a life that is why we must depend on God’s Spirit one hundred percent. Never preach without asking the Holy Spirit to help, never sing without asking the Holy Spirit to help, never build your business without asking the Holy Spirit for help, do you get what I am saying to you?
The next thing the Holy Spirit does for God’s people is comfort. He is called the Comforter (John 14:17, 18). Life is full of troubles, brokenness and sorrow, that’s why we must know the Holy Spirit as Comforter to see us through the tough times of life. Why would you want to become hard hearted and bitter after facing a tragedy in life like the world. Let the Holy Spirit keep your heart tender and peaceful through His comfort.
The one thing I really like about the Holy Spirit is that He makes Jesus so close and real. Without the Holy Spirit all you have is religion; no fellowship no promise, no joy, no peace nothing but religious misery. Have you ever seen those who confess to be Christians but all they do is debate and argue over God’s word. It’s all they know like politicians without guidance. The Holy Spirit makes life joyful and worth living glorifying Jesus Christ bringing joy and peace to the believer; revealing the wonderful touch of God to all who call upon the Lord.
The last thing is that the Holy Spirit makes intercession for the church according to the will of God the Father (Rom 8:26, 27) He helps us pray in any situation good or bad, on the mountain top or in the valley He is praying for you and your children. He never stops praying always on guard for you and your family. So what are you so worried about? Don’t you know that the Holy Spirit is there with you helping you, guiding you and praying for you? Learn to walk with Him today and see His mighty hand working in your life. Begin to study God’s Spirit through the Bible and see the amazing things to learn concerning the Third Person of the Trinity. What are you waiting for? Do it!
