The Divinity of the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is the 3rd person of the Blessed Trinity, and the one most active in the world today.

The Bible says that the Holy Spirit created the world (Genesis 1:2), led Jesus into the desert (Matthew 4:1), comes to us at Confirmation (Acts 8:18), and intercedes for us in sighs that we cannot understand (Romans 8:26). Always remember that The Church teaches that The Holy Spirit is a person, like Jesus, and like God the Father. The Holy Spirit is not some kind of generic force, like lightning or love.

The Holy Spirit IS A PERSON.

So why then do most people not seek out the Holy Spirit ? It’s because most people think that we received the Holy Spirit once at Confirmation, and that’s that. Big mistake. Our sins chase the Holy Spirit away from our bodies, which are temples to the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 6:19).

Confession along with a firm purpose of amendment to never sin again restores that relationship, but it certainly doesn’t hurt to personally invite the PERSON of the Holy Spirit back in occasionally.
