Who is Holy Spirit? He was here in the beginning—present before the world was ever created. Not merely an invisible force but fully God with us, He is always at work sustaining life and bringing order and beauty in chaos. He is infinite in nature, simultaneously as powerful as a raging storm and as calming as a gentle breeze. Holy Spirit is eternally existent all around us, sent so that God Himself could be near to us. He is not confined to human constructs yet He willingly shows up as our advocate, counselor and friend—ready and waiting to make His home in us and empower us in every moment. Find out more about Holy Spirit’s character in our next series, The 3rd Person.
Jesus told His disciples that it was better for Him to leave so that the Helper could come. We know now that He was talking about Holy Spirit. But exactly who is He?
