SPIRIT OF LIFE
John 14:16-17 And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever— the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.
The Holy Spirit is the most ignored and mysterious of the members of the trinity. He is Almighty God, but has taken a role which is not as apparent as the Father and the Son. Today, we live in the age of the Holy Spirit. He began to be poured out on all mankind almost 2000 years ago. From the day of Pentecost until the present hour He is being poured out on whosoever will. If you are thirsty for the real, He is available to you. F.E. Marsh wrote an incredible book about the Holy Spirit called “Emblems of the Holy Spirit”. Here is an excerpt from that book.
“He is the Spirit of Truth to sanctify, but He is not only the Spirit of Truth to communicate truth’s nature, He is also the living expression of it, even as the rays of the sun prove the sun which shines. He is the Spirit of Grace to beautify, but He is not only the Spirit to make the character beautiful with His grace, He has inherent beauty, even as the fragrance of the flower tells the nature of the plant. He is the Spirit of Love to intensify, but He is not only the Spirit of Love to kindle in our hearts the affection of love, He is Love, even as the kindly action of the mother proves the love of her heart. He is the Spirit of Life to fructify, but He is not only the Spirit of Life to quicken us into the life of spiritual things, He is also the Life itself, even as the fruit of the tree owes its being to the sap. He is the Spirit of Christ to qualify, but He is not only the Spirit of Christ to carry out God’s will in us, He is also one with Christ in the spotlessness of His character. He is the Spirit of Holiness to testify, but He is not only the Spirit of Holiness to testify, He is also the personification of holiness, even as the fire is the cause of warmth. And He is the Spirit of Light to Clarify, but He is not only the Spirit of Revelation to enlighten the mind of our understanding, He is also the Light of Life, even as the flame of the lamp proclaims the oil which causes the wick to burn.”
The Holy Spirit is everything we need in this life. He is the revealer who reveals Christ to us. He is the Living Water that quenches the thirst of our soul. He is the Spirit of Resurrection who quickens our spirit, our minds and our bodies. He is Life and anyone who finds Him finds this LIFE EVERMORE.
